Lucas and sports

Lucas is now totally into sports. His dad is thrilled. He doesn't just play them every chance he gets, he watches them and talks about them.
I remember a day when on Sunday afternoons and a football game was on that John wanted to watch, I had to: A. Hope if fell during naptime or B. entertain the kids
This has all changed.
Lucas is in there watching it with John, talking about each play, cheering on a team after figuring out which team he should be rooting for. (Any naps now involved John, not Lucas)
He wakes up and watches sports center to see highlights because his mean old mom sent him to bed before the game was over last night.
So, now things have shifted and it is sweet to see that John and Lucas have this to bond over.
Whitney and I are now watching a lot more football as well, so we can get in on this action.
We will always root for the Colts, being from Indiana
We will always root for the Bears, John has been a fan since about birth
We may one day learn to like the Lions, although so far in 6 years, that isn't happenin!!

I am Thankful

So cliche right before Thanksgiving isnt it???
But I do feel so Thankful. For my husband who goes to work everyday to provide for this family in an amazing way.
For my families health, for my parents and brother. Who even though they live far away, I love and miss so much.
For my freedoms to religious and political.
For my friends. I have amazing friends, near and far, old and new. They bring so much to my life.
So today I say thanks to God for providing all of this in my life.

I am grateful today for my freedom.
Today I have the freedom to go cast a vote. I do not like politics, politicians the whole deal. But I will not shurk my repsonsiblity or freedom to vote. There are people around the world without this freedom, so I will cast mine today.
I live in a very Democratic state at the moment, that was a little challenging when we first moved here.
Now, I dont really care how you vote, just get out there and do it.
