Life at our house has been busy. I've been traveling a ton lately for work (California, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Minnesota in the last 6 weeks). This week I've got an exhibit for the lodge at the International Sportsmen's Expo in Salt Lake. We have our dates picked to head back to the lodge next month. Kasey has been busy making shirts and playing basketball. Her church team won the stake tournament and the first round of region play. Brock is getting to be more trouble than we thought possible. He is extremely independent and sometimes downright mean. However sometimes he does say the funniest things. The other night he was saying the prayer at a meal and it went like this. "Heavenly Father, thank you for today, thank you for our family. Thank you for-hey dad, did you know I have my head bowed?". I quickly told him that I had noticed and thanked him for remembering to do that, then asked him to continue. He did. "Please bless the food- hey dad, did you know that condors always have their heads hunched over like this? I like to do it so that I can be like a condor. I like condors they are big and kinda scary but I like them". Before I could figure out how to respond he continued. "Please bless mom and Ady-hey dad, did you know that condors live in the desert and eat dead animals? I learned about them when Diego had to rescue one. Did you know that Diego is an animal rescuer?". This time he expected a response. My response was, "are you finished praying, I'd like to eat."
