A boy, a book, and a big heart!

Here's a good story about this sweet little boy!  First of all let me tell you that I fall in love with him all over again every day!  Just look at the face.

A couple of weeks ago his class went to the library to check out a book.  J.J. had forgotten to bring his in that day, but looked around anyway.  He found a book that he wanted, and the library assistant said she would put it behind the counter for him until he brought his book back.  

The next week he walked into the library, turned in his book, and looked around.  The assistant saw him and asked if he still wanted to get the book he picked out last time.  His shy little self just shook his head yes.  


Well this sweet little angel checked out this book for his princess loving twin sister!!!  Remember they can only check out one book!  When I heard this story my heart just melted.  This boy is such a precious gift, and oh how he loves his sister!!!  All I have to say is watch out boys you will have to get past J.J. first!

A quick update...

...Please don't give up on me in the blogging world!  I am still here, but just overwhelmed with how far behind I have gotten.  I thought I would post a quick update of our crazy life right now (okay we are always crazy)!

This picture made me laugh out loud when I saw it.  First of all who is that GIANT all over my boy, second what exactly is she doing, lastly why is the ball behind them???  Thought you might find it funny too!  No-Bo is enjoying soccer this fall and keeps us busy on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  He is 7 and is playing in a U10 league because we wanted him to have that coach!  I think he is doing well holding his own,  and his skills are getting so good!

She strikes again...I think he's got this one this time!!!

...and one more time (I even have another picture with her trying to get the ball from him, but I will spare you)!

This boy LOVES playing football!!!  He really can not get enough of it!  He starts about a hour before we need to leave getting everyone ready!  We run the roads on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays for his practices and games.  His team is doing very well and will play in playoffs next week.  He actually scored his first touchdown tonight!!!  I love this boy and his work ethic...many lessons to be learned from him!

These two sweet monkeys are just along for the ride!  It is a good thing that they are laid back and just go with the flow because I drag them all over the place!  What in the world will I do when they are involved in activities???  It is a good thing that they have each other for company.  God really does know what he is doing!

This was taken today!  It is the quiet before the storm in which most people call Thursday night.  For us it was a football game in one place, soccer practice in another, dinner fixed and wrapped up so we could eat in the car on the way, finish football game, pick up soccer player, eat again, shower, and rush to bed kind of night!!!
(secretly I love every minute of it)
