Shooting, Death and Heaven!


Today is a day we have NOTHING calling us!  That hasn’t happened in forever!  We are going to my in-laws for supper to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday.   I love not having to cook and knowing that I will have some good food to boot!

 Last night we went and played laser tag for Zach’s birthday.  It was so much fun!  2 other family friends joined us and has 20 minutes of chasing (but no running), shooting and being tagged.  It was a great activity.  Josh had a blast!  He was so funny.  He told Sanj he was his partner and kept following him around.  At the end of the game, of course the winner was Sanj.  As he checked out his score sheet, Josh had shot him 10 times!  LOL

All the boys had a great time and were already planning when they could go again!  We then went to Kelsey’s for dinner.  It was a great evening to just relax, hang out, eat lots of good food, and enjoy.  Zach had a great time too.

It was a little scary but I did find pulling on that trigger kind of thrilling and therapeutic.  Hum… I was thinking it would be a great ladies night out!  🙂

So Josh came home from school one day and asked me if I wanted to go to heaven?   

I said, “Yes, I can’t wait!”    

He replied, “Then just lay on the road and let a car run over you.”

Me… Quiet, feeling disturbed and anxious that this is coming out of my babes mouth.

Me… “What do you mean, Josh?”

Josh… “Well (insert name of a boy in his class) told  us that if we lie down on the road and die, we will go to heaven.”

Wow.  The thing is how come what Little Preacher Boy says at school is right over what we tell him?  He just doesn’t seem to understand that death isn’t the only way to make it to heaven! 🙂
Mrs. Herder… HELP!  (That is Josh sweet and wonderful teacher)!!!

I love my boys!  They certainly keep my world interesting!

    Wow! Scarey! Sometimes the things kids say! I remember 5-year-old Bridgette asking me why the weisel had to explode. I didn't understand what she meant, so finally she sung the song to me…"All around the mulberrry bush the monkey chased the weisel, the monkey thought it was all in fun…POP! goes the weisel!" That was an easy misunderstanding to correct.
