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

All about Adam

I don't usually write much about Adam. He's such an easy going child that there isn't much to say. He's a great kid that is generally healthy and I am so grateful for that. He is smart as a whip, has a very extensive vocabulary of which I never know what new word he may use, and he is so excited about being 5, going to kindergarten, losing his teeth and just being like his big brother. But I just have to tell you all about a few things Adam has said/done over the past few weeks that have given me a little chuckle. I think God gave me Adam just so he could do these things on days that I really need a laugh.

First, a few weeks ago I was taking the little man into school. Joshua had to stay at home since he wasn't feeling too well so I just took Adam. Usually we have a car line drop off but on this particular day I needed to talk to his teachers so I walked him inside. As we were going through the parking lot, Adam looks down at the handicap parking space and tells me, "that's where all the old ladies have to park." I don't know where he came up with that one. I would say that it was the wheelchair that he was associating with being old, but he specified "ladies."

Next, I go to pick the twins up at school one day this past week. One of their teachers is outside and tells me she has a story for me. Great. Anytime I hear that from one of my kids teachers, my insides tighten up and I start to feel nauseous. Anyway, she goes on to tell me about how during the day they were playing around and Adam goes up to his other teacher and grabs her boobs. He then yells, "I got your hips!" Oh Adam! Jeff says he's sure that Adam will try that later in life too. I think his teachers need to work more on teaching body parts!
