The latest and greatest

Isaiah spent last week with his new family on the farm. He had a great time. One of the other boys was being teased about being some girl's boyfriend. Isaiah piped up and said, "There's no such thing as boyfriends!"

Uncle Scott said, "What about Talyn? What is she?"
Isaiah: "She's my girlfriend."
Uncle Scott: "What does that make you?

Isaiah... "Happy!"


Amy had a migraine Monday so Ron and I watched Isaiah for a while while Rex had a golf game. I wasn't sure if I was taking him home, or if Rex was coming after him, so I called Amy to ask. She wanted to drink one of Isaiah's Gatorade drinks but didn't want to take his favorite flavor, so she asked me to find out.

Me: Isaiah, mommy wants to drink one of your Gatorades. Which one can she have?
Isaiah: Have her taste all three and find which one the baby likes.
Me: (laughing) Amy, he said try all three and see which one Anna likes best.
Amy: OK, tell him I'll drink an orange one.
Me: Isaiah, mommy is drinking an orange one.
Isaiah: OK, I was going to say lemon-lime, but that works.

So, why didn't he just say lemon-lime to start with?


We had planned to take Isaiah to see Mr. Popper's Penguins but with Ron getting sick and him going to the farm, we just haven't gotten to it. Yesterday, he went to the movies with his day care group from the YMCA.

Isaiah: Grandma, guess what movie we saw?
Me: I don't know, which one?
Isaiah: We saw Mr. Popper's Penguins.
Me: How was it?
Isaiah: It was Amazing!

Too funny... it's hard to write exactly how he said "Amazing," but it was so funny how it came out. More like A-maze-ing!

Passed his swimming test

Isaiah's been taking swimming lessons for the past couple of weeks. It's amazing how far he has come with water activities since last summer. He has even jumped off the high dive board this week! Wonderful!

This time last year, he wouldn't even put his face in the water, let alone go under the water.

He passed the course so will get to go onto the next level next year. He's pretty excited.
