A day in CWF

We spent the day in Cottonwood Falls with Grammy, Grampy, Leah, and Justin. 

We had lots of fun at the park.

This morning, when Brad was dropping Lincoln off at school, another parent came up and asked if he was Lincoln's dad. 

When he said yes, she told him that the other night, her son said "I'm friends with Lincoln because he makes good choices."

I'm thankful for her little guy's observation and that she shared.

Reunited and it feels so good

One day over Christmas break, Lincoln got to spend the day at Penny's house with his first friends. It was a good day!

"I had a meeting today at school. About disc golf. And we threw some discs."

"When I was little, this (an old, clunky backhoe) was frustrating, but now I can do it."

"When I was in the wood chips, I yelled and yelled for Ky two times. He didn't come. I wanted him for a project."

"Where are we going? Are we going to NPR News?"

"Do you want veggies on your sandwich?"
"What veggies do you want?"

"We need rain so the crops can grow. I need the crops to grow so I can eat lots of bread."

"I wish I had a baby cow named Jokah."

Every time he sees the number 8: "A zwiebach! That's a zwiebach!"

"The cold was peeking through the garage doors, and I got really cold."

Trying to explain that he doesn't get a treat every time we go somewhere, and Lincoln fires back "I do at the meats!" (Gillespies gives candy to kids...) 

"Candy cans!"
