Random Things I've Learned This Summer

Or had reaffirmed in some way.

Kids are funny. Everyone should keep a few around for laughs. Here are some conversation tidbits I've enjoyed over the last few months from 5 year olds.


Upon finding a frog:
"Let's name him Hoppy!"
"No, let's name him Kevin!"


Upon finding a dead frog:
"Poor froggy."


The 5 year old girl sitting in the pew in front of us at church to my 5 year old son:
"Do you see my sparkling beauty?"
"No."
Same 5 year old girl to same son a few days later at the pool:
"Will you marry me when we grow up?"
"I guess."
Her mom, "What if C doesn't marry you?"
Girl, "I guess I'll have to ask someone else."

I should fear 5 year old girls for sure.

While at the pool I learned that I shouldn't worry so much about how I look in a swim suit. No one else does and some of them really should.

Along with that--there should be some kind of unwritten  code that prevents certain sizes from being made in certain styles.

My dog isn't very smart, but he's really cute.

Some dogs act a lot like cats. For instance, mine likes to warm up in a square of light from the window, sleep on his back, and lick himself like a cat. I've been told it might be because he watches a cat through the window.

The best way to save money is to groom your dog yourself. And rip out your own carpets before having someone install wood floors.


A 70inch Sharp Aquos TV is a beautiful thing. Even a girl could drool over it and think "I wants it!" But alas, where would you put a monster like that?

When I schedule blogs for two months, I feel out of touch with my bloggy friends. I can't wait to get caught up when my  kids go back to school.

Finding contentment in where you are in life makes everything that much better. Life is good.

What have you learned this summer?
