My Amazing Man Child

Jonathan had planned to take Kaity to the movie this past summer to see Monster House. But it came to our local theater and was gone before we realized.

The DVD came out today. To make it up to her, Jonathan took Kaity to Wal-Mart last night at a few minutes before midnight. As they rolled the display out, he bought her the first copy sold. Then they came back to our house. They made snacks and Jonathan and the littles enjoyed the show together. Then he spent the night here, being Kaity and Khi's hero!

It amazes me to see my almost 21 year old son being so thoughtful and tender toward his 8 and 10 year old siblings. I have friends with families 1/2 a generation apart in age. They're lucky when the older ones acknowledge the existence of the younger ones.

We are blessed.

"We are blessed"


When I experience the thoughtlessness of my oldest towards the rest of the family, I will think of how lucky you are with Jonathan!

Give him a hug from me.

You are blessed and I bet Jonathan thinks he is too.

Who has the November 7th birthday? My oldest will be 31 on November 7th. Okay, this is getting unreal ;-)
