Proud.

I spoke at a retreat last fall and shared some stories about the ministry, our lives, and our own kids. At the end, during the Q & A portion, one woman asked if my kids were normal. I knew what she meant. My kids have been exposed to a lot of situations, circumstances, and stories that have impacted forever the way they see the world, people, sin, and redemption. But, she wondered, did they fuss and fight over stupid stuff, whine, talk sassy, drop everything at the front door when they walk in from school, eat entire jars of Nutella before dinner, and, whenever possible, mimic what they see on T.V. - even if it's innapropriate or just plain ridonkulous?

I will now answer that question with a photo.

It was 27 degrees in Dallas this morning. Tee was in charge of putting up the flag at school. I got this picture from a teacher 10 minutes after I'd dropped him off.

Then from a friend. Then from the Headmaster. The school nurse said his tongue only bled a little when they finally got it unstuck from the pole. If we're homeschooling next fall, you'll know why.

Have a great weekend!

On the bright side, with this behavior at least it looks promising that he'll be an Aggie one day... :)

Tee can now consider himself an honorary Canadian, as that is a rite of passage for a young man (or geek) up here. I love that everybody emailed you the pic. Love it.

If you were unschooling, this would be called a Science Experiment.
