It's moments like this...

Do you ever wonder if your kids listen and grasp the teachings that you hope they are absorbing with those little sponge like brains of theirs? Well, on Saturday Aaron was outside with the boys and Kaden wanted to ride his bike but couldn't find his helmet. I was upstairs getting ready for the day and he came in and asked me if I had seen it. I told him I hadn't and to look more around the house which he did. A few minutes later it got really quiet and as I was doing my make-up I heard a little voice from downstairs say "Dear Heavenly Father, can you please please please help me find my helmet. Oh and I love you and Jesus so much Heavenly Father. Thank you for my blessings. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen." My heart melted as I realized that he is listening in church and in FHE. Every Sunday we ask the boys what they learned in class and he always says he can't remember. No one encouraged him to pray for help but he knew that he could ask his Heavenly Father for help. And ya know what, shortly after that he found his helmet. His prayer had been answered. It's moments like this that make me so proud of him. I feel so blessed to have our boys and a loving husband who helps me to raise them with correct teachings and principals to give them the best chance of happiness throughout their lives. And I'm grateful to have an angel son who will watch over them as they grow up. Well, we are having a fun summer just playing outside and being carefree. Kaden will be done with summer school at the end of June and then 2nd grade starts the 3rd week of August so we'll just enjoy the time in between as much as possible. Jonas is in T-Ball and I wish I could say that he was enjoying it more but he's 4 and thinks that standing in a field holding a glove is boring. Imagine that. He likes to bat but that's only a few times during the game. So, he's going to finish what he started but I don't know if he'll be doing it next year. Kaden will start soccer in August and hopefully that will go better. In closing I just wanted to share with everyone that there is a little baby boy Tristan Woodman who is currently at Primary Children's Hospital who also has ATRT and his family could really use some support financially with medical costs. If you go on facebook and look up the "Pray for baby Tristan" group, every little bit helps. My heart goes out to his family during this difficult time as it hits very close to home. Please keep the Woodman family in your prayers and thank you again for all of the love and support you have given to our family. It helped more than you will ever know.
