Clay, as always, has way too much energy for one person. I wish I had a tenth of it. He was walking along, doing pirouettes, banging off the walls and just being goofy. Of course, when I pulled out the camera, he calmed down some and my battery died a couple seconds after I started taping, but you can get an idea...
This reminded me of the video Peggy made of Caden walking down the street in NYC. Speaking of, the Larsons are heading back to NYC so Coleman can get some further treatment. For those of you who are new to my blog, Coleman Larson is an adorable little boy with a twin brother, Caden. Coleman is battling cancer and his mom, Peggy updates his CarePage almost daily. The Larsons have a strong faith and despite going through some really rough times, they always manage to see the rainbow at the end of the storm. If you haven't "met" the Larsons, go to carepages.com and sign up. It just takes a minute. You can access his page by typing in "colemanscott" with no spaces and no quotation marks. Anyway, Coleman's counts were down and he wasn't feeling well today, so pray he feels well enough to travel to New York in the morning.
So, we grabbed a bite to eat after the shopping "fun". We ran into some friends of ours there. When they came up to the table, I said, "Hey kids, wouldn't you like to go home with Uncle Dave and Aunt Brenda?" You know, because they were still wired and acting nuts and I figured why not share this special time with Dave and Brenda who have no kids of their own.
When Dave and Brenda left, Savannah asked, "Are they really our aunt and uncle?"
Austin looked at her like she was stupid and said, "No! They're our godparents, duh!"
Just for the record - they're neither the kids' aunt and uncle, nor their godparents. My kids are SO smart.
I have to go to bed. I'm so screwed up going from Central to Pacific to Central to Eastern to Central to Pacific to Central and off Daylight Savings Time in the past 2 weeks. I have no idea what time it is, but I'm pretty much always tired. Whose bright idea was Daylight Savings Time anyway? I can never figure out how to change the clock in my car and it ticks me off.
Tonight Savannah asked, "Is it really 8:30 now?"
"Nope. It's 7:30," I answered.
"Why don't you change it so it's the right time?"
My kids already think I'm technologically inept. There was no way I was going to admit that I didn't have a clue how to change the clock. "It'll be the right time in 6 months. Just be patient."
It was dark, but I'm pretty sure she rolled her eyes at me.
Have a good night! :)
