My sweet little man

Ki has such a generous, soft heart. I love it. This week church is having ‘D6 Weekdays’ – like VBS. When I picked him up the first day, he had a hand that said ‘Childrens’ Ibuprofen’ on it. He was asking his teacher for another hand. She told him to tell me about it and tomorrow we could see. They are collecting medicine to send to missionaries in Guatemala. The next day, his teacher told me that after they explained it they asked if anyone was willing to help buy medicine for them. She said Ki immediately raised his hand. And then he wanted each kind of hand. (There are multiple medicines they’re collecting.)

I LOVE that he wants to help people. To be generous. Love it. This past winter when they talked about Operation Christmas Child boxes he nagged me about picking up a box. Then when we got that, he nagged me about getting the stuff for inside it. He was SO excited! I adore that about my boy. And I hope it never changes and that he continues to want to bless people who have less than us.

I love you, Ki! You are an awesome young man!
Love, Mom

Ella woke up with a song on her heart and was singing it all morning.

Then she bowed. It made my morning.

Then Ki needed a video of himself. (Note his wrist. He said he was going to wear the tape thing all the time. Ha!)

And last but not least, Bro started saying bye-bye lay night. So cute!

Ki-isms (112th ed.)

Long overdue!November…

Mike is teaching Ki about tv. Commercials and choosing from what’s on rather than whatever you want. It’s funny! He’s so clueless.

Ki to Ella: You’re the bossiest person I know! Well, except for one person in my PE class. (I really wanna meet Christina now. Ha!)

“I wonder what our craft will be today (in his kindergarten class)! Maybe it’ll be a chicken cuz last time it was a turkey.”

“Ella, if you want tuh throw it away, just give it to me. I like to keep shoes that people don’t want.”

“He’s (Fenton) like the strongest boy! Well. Actually not. I can, like, break a plate.”

It’s the Fenton gun shooter! He’s the fireball boy. Which he can shoot fireballs out of the gun. (Picture, caption and Facebook posting dictated by Ki.)

Ki just told Ella she’s a cute little girl.

Ki needs to work on his follow through when high fiving. I just got smacked in the face.

Ki likes his treats.

Ki watching Toy Story 2: Bet my toys are alive right now.

My son just called me dude. He cracks me up.

Ki said he feels fine this morning and is acting the part. Mike gave him oyster crackers to nibble on, but he doesn’t get the concept of eating slowly. “So, I put 3 in my mouth, but I only chew one at at time. Okay?”

Mom logging off of Ki on the computer and onto Dad:  I’m getting off your screen and going to Dad’s.

Ki:  …Uh…I call it a profile, Mom.
