Levi hates disease

Levi was riding in the back of the truck the other day and we had a conversation about disease. We were going over to Grampa Dans and Nancy was home from work in bed. She has breast cancer and she was down on her white count so we had to make sure we weren't going to be bringing any colds with us. He said to me. "I hate cancer!" I said, "Yeah, me too." He then said, "I hate leprosy too."
Yeah, thats real catchy today.

The talk

I had to have the "talk" with Jace. I was ready, prepared, prayed up, and confident. I had a couple of books and I'm so glad for that! I read the books and changed the "mommies" to mom and the "daddies" to dad and went on with the book. Who tells their kids the story of the birds and the bees when they are still calling them that is beyond me. When we got to the actual "how" babies happen he shouted out, "I am never gonna do that!" He was laughing and puzzled all at the same time and it was quite sweet, innocent, and funny. I'll never forget his face and the things he said; questions he asked. One down, two to go! Phew!

Explode The Code

This book is ridiculous! What 1st grader knows words like mob, jig, tot, hag, bog? There's more! Names in the book are like Dot, Bess, Pam, Gus, and Tex!??? What century was this book made? Where was it made? "Mom cuts logs in the hot sun?" Whose mom does this? Laura Ingalls?
My final thought? Don't buy this book for your 1st grade curriculum unless of course u live in the past!

Good quote

"I haven't always been a Christian. I didn't go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of (fill in the liquor) would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly do not recommend Christianity."
