La, La, La.... I can't hear you!

This morning, Andrew and I were talking about his school schedule.  Today is gym day... his favorite.  But a close second is tomorrow when they have a community speaker come in for a Q&A time with all the third graders.

Last week, a doctor came a spoke to the group.  This doctor specialized in Asthma, so while he spoke of generally being a doctor, he also covered the topic of asthma.  Meaning, this week, I've been fielding questions left and right about asthma, a topic I know very little about.

This morning, during our discussion, Andrew volunteered,

"I hope it's not another doctor tomorrow, because I don't want to know about stuff like Asthma.  If I don't know about it, I won't worry about getting it".

Ah, ignorance is bliss.  I also thought this was kinda deep for an 8year old to piece together.

Is this the  same as me wanting to cover my ears and hum during the news?  Hmmm.

So, we talked about how "knowing" about an illness is MUCH different than having an illness.  And it's good to learn about the world around us and what other people experience.  Plus we never need to worry, especially about something we don't have, because God is in control and He will take care of us.  And asthma is very treatable and people live happy, active lives with asthma everyday.

We'll see "who" comes to visit tomorrow and what topic I get to bluff my way through discuss during next week's car rides.

First Day of First Grade (& Third Grade)

First of all.... when I dropped the boys off this morning and walked them to their classes amid the chaos that is the first day of school, AJ started walking the halls like a penguin.  I'm not sure he's ever done that... let alone the first day of school.  And he kept saying, "I'm a penguin, I can't stop walking."  What?!

After AJ got in the car after his first full day, I asked him how it went.

"It was looooonng.  I'm pretty sure we were there for 22 hours."

Andrew seemed to have a great day and was enthralled by his teacher's stories of being a missionary kid in China.

Overall, they both enjoyed the their day and looking forward to going back again tomorrow.

Actual Prayer

In July, Andrew received 6 stitches in the inside of his thigh above his knee.  It's now September 3rd and healing nicely and looks so much better.... and yet here was AJ's actual prayer tonight.
Dear God, please help Andrew's scar not be so gross.  Just help it heal like a regular scar and not be so yucky.
