Happy fathers day

I was just about to go to bed when I decided to post this picture of the best daddy I know. Even though we celebrated him from afar this year (week long class in Kentucky right now while we're in NB), we missed him and want him to know what an amazingly caring, devoted and intentional father he is.

And, I was just about to post this when I heard Elijah on the stairs.  I went to see what was up and he puked from about halfway up the stairs to the bottom where I was standing.  I ran to get a bowl and he made it in the bowl for most of it, but I think that's a pretty good father's day gift.  Eric is fortunate to miss out on the puke clean up and sick-kid vigil tonight.  I'm off to bed, hopefully to sleep but probably not.  I love you dearest.

Hope Elijah is feeling better.

He is finally feeling better today. Still not at 100% energy level for him, but he's about average with everyone else now. :)

OH man. What an adventure.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
