The trouble came when Jordan fell asleep near the end of the day. Hansung yelled his name half a dozen times while Jordan smiled sweetly and proceeded to close his eyes. It was all very cute until Hansung pinched him to wake him up. Then there was a lot of "Hey, that's not nice Daddy!" with a few more yelps and screams. Have I mentioned that Jordan spits when he is angry or frustrated? He spat. I don't really blame him. Who wants to be pinched when you are falling asleep on the back of a bike anyway?
The bike riding campaign was successful and Hansung's students have collected quite a bit of money to get them to Nepal this summer. I'll let you know the full amount next post.
Justin absolutely loved this event and was very competitive with the students despite being half their age. He kept up with the 'big kids' very well.
In other family news, our family has a regular Sunday evening prayer service. This last Sunday was rather entertaining. There was the regular rounds of thanksgiving for family, friends, fun activities, and then Justin thanked God for food. "I thank you God for bacon and hot dogs. It's been a good food day. I love it when we have bacon for breakfast. I totally enjoyed the hot-dogs at church! Thank you God for good food!"
We have a "Gary Dean" breakfast about once a month. In honor of a missionary who put up with my husband's shenanigans over 20 years ago we have renamed the traditional bacon, eggs, and toast breakfast as a "Gary Dean" breakfast. Thank you Gary Dean. I'm sure Gary will be pleased to know that this breakfast has encouraged thanksgiving in my son.
This past Sunday was Pentecost Sunday at church. Two people were baptized and it was awesome to watch. To celebrate the church held a BBQ after the service and they served hot-dogs. I thought Justin's eyes were going to bug out of his head when he saw how many hot-dogs were cooked. He was in heaven.
Aidan has had a few victories over the month. He did not fall asleep on the back of the bike, but more importantly, he is able to skip rope much better than he did last month. In April, he was averaging 2-3 skips before his feet got all tangled up in the jump-rope. Last Saturday, he got to 12 skips before things fell apart. He isn't far off from being able to do it without any problems.
I guess these cute little boys are not so little anymore. But, for me, they will always be cute.
