The sweetest thing today

Kollin was so excited for summer to be here and to actually have the time to watch TV and play computer games. He's just a tad bit of a nerd when it comes to Nintendo and computer games and would play them ALL day if I'd let him. Well school is starting in about 6 weeks so everyday I have him do something educational for quiet time. Whether it be a workbook, reading, puzzles, etc. When quiet time came today I laid the other kids down and saw him grab a notebook. I didn't ask what he was doing because I was proud that I didn't have to tell him to do it. After about 15 minutes he brought me this...

He wrote a journal page about something recently that made him happy.

In case you cant understand kid lingo yet it says:

Brooklyn got Bathtized.
on July 3 Brooklyn got Bathtized.
me and mady were exydid when we turn 8. (him and his cousin Maddison will turn 8 at the same time next year and be baptized together.)
my favrit part was when she whent under the water.

And I love love love the picture of her baptism. He even added all the smaller kids looking down on Brookie and Tim.

Moments like these reassure me that I'm doing okay as a Mom! Love you Kol!
