~Taekwon Do and "OH SH*@#!"

~Today was Noah's first Taekwon Do lesson. He looked absolutely adorable in his uniform and he did a great job following along. He can even kick as high and higher than some of the other kids in his class. I was a proud mom. At the end he was a little disappointed because he didn't get to break any boards. Boys will be boys! It's not real fun until you break something.

After class he was very tired...

~"OH SH*#@!"

Excuse the remodeling project in the back of the picture, but look closely at Adam's face. Yes, this picture was taken just after he returned from the dentist for a root canal. While the dentist was giving Adam the series of shots to numb his mouth he hears the dentist yell,
"OH SH*@#!"
and instantly feels pain above his upper lip (not anywhere close to the back of his mouth where he was supposed to get the shots). The blood started to flow and so did the apologies. The dr. said in his 20 years of practice he has never done that to a patient. He accidently shoved the needle into Adams upper lip, totally missing his mouth altogether! Adam said that every time his upper lip would stretch during the root canal it would start to bleed and they'd have to stop to wipe the blood...then he would start laughing just thinking about the dentist swearing.
Adam is a good sport!

~Frogs, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

~Well there are no snails or puppy dogs tails, but we did find a FROG. They were a little scared to touch it at first, but warmed up to it pretty fast. Hopefully Simon didn't kill it! He didn't want it to get away.

~This has nothing to do with frogs, but I thought it was cute. The other day the boys were given an Alvin and the Chipmunks poster at the movies. On the way home we heard Noah singing, so we turned down the radio and listened. Noah's favorite primary song is, "Follow the Prophet." He was singing, while looking at his poster, and I quote, "Alvin and the Chipmunks, don't go astray. Follow the prophet he knows the way!"

~Boys and Blueberries

I haven't really kept up on blogging since we've been back in Alaska, but over the weekend we went blueberry picking.
The boys had a great time.
Tonight we enjoyed homemade blueberry pancakes! Yummy!
