Cute Barben Kids

Mike: "Bri, did you know Barack Obama is our new president?"
Bri: "The Barack Obama who lies?"
Mike: PAUSE... "No, this is a different Obama..."
Bri: "OH GOOD! I wouldn't want the Barack Obama who lies to be our president!"
(What do you do? I don't want my FIVE year old to worry about the future of our country!?)

Later the same day....
Bo: "I heard that President Obama is going to do a lot of bad things to our country. I heard that we are going to have to go to school on Saturday's now!"
(This is about as bad as you can get for a second grader!)


Check out this bear... This bear brought tears to my eyes! Bo came home last week with this bear from the "school store." They earn "patriot bucks" for doing good things; they save them and then buy fun things at the "store." Bo has been saving since the first of the year and had earned 170 bucks! Guess what he bought? $100 bucks went to this bear for HIS SISTER BRIELLE!!
He couldn't wait to give it to her. He said, "I hope she likes it SO much she sleeps with it every night!" Thank heavens - IT WAS MONEY WELL SPENT! Bri has LOVED it!! She DOES sleep with it every night - even Bell carries it around with her! Bri has been so gracious and appreciative! I'm a proud mom!!

Bo is sooo cute to get Bri that bear. I don't think that would even cross Connor's mind. What a good kid. I will have to tell you what Connor said about Barack Obama being the new President. It is not something I should write about in my blog. :)

Josh told me the school on Saturday story too. Sounds good to me! When can they start. Tomorrow would be good since Zac is gone.

Oh have the biggest heart. How very sweet of you to think of others. I hope it is a quality that you have forever. Many times others can get their feelings hurt...or feel left out...or they can be afraid to sleep without a snuggly bear. Then, it is good to have a Bo in their life. Hey did you see the Bronco's?? I love you Bo.

What a great brother! And the Obama stuff cracks me up. Tayler, my 12 year-old, has been saying the same thing about school. He also says that we are getting bombed the minute he gets into office! Hello, kids will believe anything!
