The other day I was sitting at the table with the kids, finishing up our breakfast. We were talking about moving, the kids are very excited about the possibility of moving to a larger home. So here was the conversation that happened between Aidan and I…
Mommy: “You guys know that when we move, Tony and Jenn and Dee and Monte wont be our neighbors anymore?” Trying to prepare them for the reality, we are really going to miss our neighbors when we leave.
Aidan: With kind of a sad voice he said, “oh, I hadn’t thought about that…”
Mommy: “Yeah, it will be sad huh? But we will pray that the Lord will bring us good neighbors…”
Aidan: Cheerfully says, “Yeah, maybe we’ll get BETTER ones!”
I had to laugh hard at that one! I didn’t want to break it to him, they don’t get much better than the ones we’ve got! I told Dee about what he said and she just cracked up, she thought that he had a very positive, “conquer the world” attitude. And I agree, I think moving into our own place will be a very good adventure for all of us!
By the way, the picture up there is a picture of Aidan and Dee walking to the store together. She let him pick out a piece of candy to buy for each of the kids. It makes me want to cry thinking that we wont be living near them for very much longer. They’ve been such a blessing to us, and our kids love them so much. But we will be back to visit, I’m sure of it :)
And one last Aidan quote-There was a lady stuck on the road in front of our house. The winds were still very strong and it was extremely cold out so Chris quickly left breakfast and got his snow clothes on to help the lady get her car un-stuck. Aidan watching from the window said, “There goes daddy, to save the day!” I told the boys that when they are men, they will get to “save the day just like daddy”. They beamed with pride that their daddy was rescuing those two ladies in need.
