little things...

So I had my big run today. well it was only 2 miles but for me that's big! I finished at 22min and 23 seconds. Not too shabby for a first run! Amanda was my little cheerleader and Kyle was amazing! Aunt Carrie smoked us all of course and Dustin and Russ did awesome. pictures to come. But I had to post what happened tonight!
At bedtime, I was reading to the boys out of the Easter book that my mom got for us. It's one of the "my first scriptures" books. We were talking about how Jesus taught the people to Love One Another. I asked the boys what that meant and then we of course practiced saying it. Then I asked them if they loved each other. They of course said yes and I asked them each why. Kaden was doing somersaults on his bed of course by this time, and I asked him "Kaden, why do you love Parker?" and I could tell that he was actually thinking about his answer, and then he said, "because he's my best friend." of course I couldn't keep the tears from coming and my sons were looking at me like I was nuts but these are the moments that make it all worth it! Enough Said.

I just clutched my heart, owww! that is too cute. They are such cute little guys. And congrats on the run! Does this mean you are hooked now? Like you'll want to run a 1/2 marathon next year with me or something? Something to chew on...

I am so glad you are recording what your children are saying. You will treasure these blogs when your children are gone and you are trying to remember the good old days. I am so proud of you for finishing the race. The next one will be easier. Midge

I'd cry too. I about cried the other day when Braden walked in the house after getting off the bus and said "Tanner, I'm home. C'mon, let's play".
