Guys and Sports

John had a soccer game tonight and the boys and I went for just a little bit. It was somewhat comical to watch from the side because the other team was killing Johns team and yet they were whining and complaining about everything! At one point there was kind of a disagreement and a lot of people were yelling and Caleb looked at me and said,
C: "Whats going on Mom."
Mom: "They are kind of mad and are trying to figure it out."
C: "Are the Daddies being nice?"
Mom: "Well, no not really but they might get a time out from the referee if they don't work it out and start talking nice."
Caleb then proceeded to give me this mischievous smile and cover his mouth like "ohhhh" as if he had never heard of something so funny as a daddy in time out.

Seriously though, I'm so glad John is mostly normal in sports. Competitive enough to be a man but he doesn't totally lose control of himself. One of the guys on his team totally lost it and was swearing up a storm and when his wife tried to tell him to knock it off, he started swearing at her. He really is the nicest guy...just don't mess with him in sports. I guess I shouldn't rag on guys to much...I have been to the Roberts Crafts Clearance center and seen normal woman become animals!

On a sadder note....Our little Davis got a cold on the camping trip and it is in his chest. I took him to the Dr today because his cough is so bad that he cant stop coughing to the point where he cant breath. Its also made him throw up a couple of times. I was totally prepared for another ER visit and a second kid with asthma but so far so good. I don't think I could handle a second kid with asthma!!!! I'm counting my blessings!

I'm so impressed with how you handle your kids. You do well in all you teach them. Dad is really sick too. Actually he never got over it. He is on antibiotics and tonight Deric Lords offered to give him a blessing and he took him up on it. I don't know why the Lord has blessed me so much, but with everyone sick, I haven't caught anything yet!

Thats cool that John is playing soccer again. If you guys are down here and we have a game will have to sneak him in.

That's funny, I love Caleb's reaction to daddies being in time out. How cute!
