On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Kids ...there's just no predicting what they will say next

We spent this past weekend with Brady, 6, and Noah 4,
two of the cutest boys I've ever seen
and more fun to be around because they're always coming up with
some new trick to show Papa and Nonnie or a game to play
(which usually involves me running around and getting sweaty, ;-),
but you know I really don't mind).

Brady wanted to play outside, but Noah wanted me to watch The Lion King 
(probably for the 30th time),
so I agreed since it meant we could cuddle up and
watch the movie together I could lie down and take a break
It was fun as we watched and shared through all Simba's  adventures
until Nala finds him again and convinced him he is the rightful king and not Scar. 

So, after the big fight between Simba and Scar
and life is returning to bliss for the lions, we see Simba and Nala come out
with their playful baby cub. 

At this point, Noah jumped up with his arms out
and an expression of unbelief
and shouted out:
"How can that be? That's not possible!
Lions don't lay eggs. 
That just can't be right?!!"
He was truly confused and bewildered about the whole thing
(and I so wish I had been able to get a picture of that boy). 

We began to talk about the animals that do lay eggs 
And other kinds of animals that are mammals. 
"But how does it happen?"
We then explained to Noah that he would have to get the rest of the story 
.... You guessed it.  Mom or Dad will get to explain it to him. 

When Kate spends the night with us, she brings many of her various furry friends. 
(Another friend named Ellie always comes too, however, Ellie is invisible.
We did find out the other day that Ellie is an elephant. 
Being invisible, it is somewhat difficult to play
Tag or Hide and Seek with Ellie)!
Kate must sleep with at least 50 of her "friends" in her bed every night. 
One of her friends is Sonny the wooly lamb. 
He wears sunglasses and a scarf around his neck
and has flip-flops on his feet. 

Kate could not go to to sleep the other night. 
She said "Sonny won't stop bouncing on the bed."
I had to put Sonny in time out. 

One of the funniest I ever heard was when Brady was potty training. 
His Mom was standing nearby and she heard him talking to himself.
"Come on out of there, Poop.  Don't stay in there by yourself.
Come out where you belong."

Where do they come up with this stuff?

I cannot wait to hear what kind of things this little guy will have to say.

When we had to leave on Christmas Eve, Noah was so disappointed,
He began trying to figure out a way for us to live there with them
so we could see them play every day. 

I'm loving these sweet moments.

Oh I'm loving that story. Are not the kids amazing in their thought patterns.

Remember a story of a boy who comes in the kitchen and asked where he came from... Bewildered the mother explained as best she could to a 7 year old. When she finished he said..."That interesting...Billy said he came of Billings Montana...Where did I come from.....~~~~ Yikes. HaHaHa

Kids just have the coolest little minds that are so uncluttered! Love all those cute sayings. I wish I had written down all the ones my kiddos came up with when they were little! Having Grandkids does give us time to enjoy the sweetness without the hassle of parenting! Your Grands are so cute! Glad you had such fun with them!
