So, now that I got that out of the way, this post is not really about Starbucks. I am a Caribou fan, myself, btw. Today was be-u-ti-ful. How wonderful to feel a little sweaty. My van temp said 88 degrees outside--heaven. But, we still had wind, which made it nice.
Well, I wouldn't be honest if I didn't cover our Thursday park day experience. It's been very hard to find friends for oldest son. He finds friends everywhere he goes, but I gravitate to moms with children with youngest son's age. Oldest found some boy(s) that are cool buds. Then girls came and messed it up. Can I say that, being a girl myself? It's nuts that it starts so early. Nothing that I can control, but I can control us being there. Still praying on that one. So here is the story, in a nutshell: Oldest was tired of playing magic and harry potter. He stated that he did not believe in that stuff. He was then made fun of. I think that's freakin' awesome. He is strong enough in his beliefs that he stood up for them. Yay. Now, I don't want him subjected to this on a weekly basis, but I'm glad that the beliefs we instilled are manifesting in his life.
Insert comment about harry potter: when oldest asked me "what a harry potter" was, I kind of laughed and said, it's a book. He then asked what it was about. What I know of the book is that it is about a boy who goes to witch/warlock school, and learns the ways of spells and such. Now, that's a dumbed down version. I didn't shed any negative light on it at all. I wanted him to make a determination on it. He then asked if it was OK. I told him to pray about it and to see what God would think about it. A very short time later, he said that God wouldn't like it. End of story.
Anyway, he apparently has a girlfriend at said park day. She's cute, and I think her family are Christians. Interesting that we would go to a secular home school event, yet end up with Christians around us. It's inevitable! God is good. Oldest told hubby about it, and told him not to tell me. Yikes! He thought I'd be mad. Man, I don't want to be a hard a$$, but I am a little overprotective. We all ended up talking about it tonight.
Anyway, sleep will hopefully call to me soon, so we'll talk soon, K?
