We want to instill a love of serving in our children (learned that from Sheri and have been blessed for years by Hat doing just that, but that’s a rabbit trail…) and as they are getting older, one way is by serving in the nursery at church when I’m scheduled. Beckham wanted to, and I told him it wasn’t play time, he was there for the kids. He agreed and was amazing with the littles (except no one wanted to play with me, he was a hot commodity!). At one point the game was “dress Beckham up”…he was SUCH a good sport! He had 4 or 5 different “outfits” put on him! My mom heart was happy to see this…:)
Go play in the yard they said. It’ll be fun they said.
This picture makes me so uncomfortable!! It’s so awkward!! Yet still my favorite thing about life with Brian!
The Pikachu was such a good sport!…at least, I think he was. It’s not like he had much of a choice in the matter…
Point for construction paper and tape. They made themselves animals! (Also, Dory is on the table in the background. 10 to 1 I freaked out after I took this as I lunged for her)
Some days just scream for Varsity Donuts!
Ok, let’s talk Coke. Soda. Pop. Whatever you call it from wherever you are.
Brian and I grew up drinking Dr Pepper. Exclusively. We haven’t had it in years and now when we try it it tastes like cherries. Weird. Anyways, I took Brian to the grocery store with me one day (which is like taking a child, he wanders around, pops back in now and then and puts stuff in the cart and messes with my budget!) and he came back with a Crystal Pepsi. Blast from the past! I remember this stuff from the 80s! We tried it and it was shockingly yummy!!
When I went back the next week I was gonna grab some more, but they were out. This started a mission to find more Crystal Pepsi. I’m not going to stay how many stores we checked. cause that would make you think we are weird. But the mission ended by
stalking and cornering politely talking to a Pepsi stocker in a grocery store and begging for information on this stuff! Turns out Pepsi puts it out every summer, but for a very limited time. So we randomly had stumbled upon it at the VERY end of the run. He tipped us off to a store he was at that morning that had the last ones in town! And we stocked up!
This also started a taste test to see if we love Pepsi and just never knew it. For the record, we don’t. Just Crystal. In the process we both discovered we prefer RC Cola to the others (and also Brian read a history book on Sodas, so he’s an expert now. And a nerd.)
Speaking of nerds…
Kids’ art teacher gave them a rooster cause Becks told him his dad loves them! Melissa is painting it for us for church decoration!
