why buy toys? (and the big boy hair cut)
As I expected when I saved those spools for Aaron in the midst of Christmas sewing, he loves them. More than some of his other toys, which we've relegated to the top shelf of his closet until age makes them more appreciated. For now, I'm more than happy that empty spools of thread provide 40 minutes of entertainment.
This weekend, we are Michael-less. He's heading up to Snow Camp with the youth group, and Aaron and I are staying home. This year's camp is being held almost 3 hours from us! Usually, the camp we rent is a mere 40 minutes. If this were the case, I'd be leaving Aaron with my parents and heading up myself on Friday...but the distance prohibits that this year. Oh well! I'm sure there will be plenty of Snow Camps in my future. We sure are going to miss Michael, though. He'll be gone for 2 nights - the longest we have been apart since our marriage!! As we were saying goodbye, Aaron looked out the door and said, "Daddy? Home?" and that about broke my heart. I'm going to try to distract myself with random fun things. Mom and Dad have school off tomorrow, so we will probably get together too!
Please pray for our teens this weekend - and for the sponsors!!
