Boys...

Today I was mowing the lawn and I kept having to tell Aaron to stay back because the lawnmower is "owie". I was concerned about a rock or part of a stick flinging out and hitting him...it didn't even dawn on me until he went up to the lawnmower--while it was off, of course, and touched it that it gets EXTREMELY hot in one area. I've burned myself on it before and he grabbed it with his whole hand. Poor baby got a big blister on his finger and some burn on the palm of his hand. He cried for the next 2 hours or so and I could do nothing but hold him and keep his hand on a bag of cold water. Poor baby, I felt so bad for him. I got him down for his nap and I was worried that he may not sleep well, but he slept great and when he awoke, his hand wasn't bothering him anymore, Praise God! :) Now onto the OTHER boy :) Jeremy had his Chief's test today. It's the test he has to take to see if he can/will advance to Chief one of these days. The test is one of many factors that determine his ability to advance, but it's a necessary part. So he was telling the children this morning that if he does well on the test, we'll be able to move somewhere else. We'd like to move, not because we don't like where we are, it's absolutely wonderful here, but because it's one of the most expensive places in the country and not the best place to raise a large family, unless you're independently wealthy, which we are not. So Luke was outside and he was talking to our neighbor and he asked her about her husband, "Is Kyle doing that thing where if you win, you get to move??" Hahahaha....I thought it was so funny the way he phrased it. I just love the way children's brains work! So that's my boy stuff for the day. The littlest boy is wiggling, but doesn't have a whole lot to say yet!

Oh My, he is so on top of things! I feel sorry for the moms that aren't close by their children and miss all that good stuff. We started listening to the tapes Beulah saved for us(WE sent them tapes when we were in Indonesia and Jere(5 years old) is on there. He is so cute, explaining how he has to be good, speak only when spoken to(during school) and work hard so he can earn a toy gun that he wanted. You guys will have to hear it sometime, it's priceless!
