All Hail the Power of Krisy Kreme

On Monday, I took Darien on a 'man date'. We picked up a couple of cherry slushes from Sonic, went to pick up some fishing lures, bike inner tubes, and a new soccer ball. On our way home, we spoiled our lunch by stopping off at Krispy Kreme. We spent nearly an hour sitting in KK and talking about all the random things in a 5-year-old's head. Good times.

Why is it that Krispy Kreme won't sell t-shirts bigger than XL....but Nike will sell sizes up to 5x??? Go figure.

Addison and I will do that when mom goes to play Bunko. It's a great way to bond in our busy shedule.

Aren't 5 year olds great? My little guy will be 6 next week, and he amazes me at the things he sees and wants to talk about.

How was camp, bro?

The challenge for me, in ministry, is to do that kind of thing on a regular seems like there are always so many things crowding for our attention.

Any ideas on how to learn to do that?

I have to tell ya, Darien is going to break a few hearts when he gets married. Your son is a handsom man. He looks like you and heather, but mostly Heather.

If Dylan is that handsom when he gets that old you will have girls hanging around your house for years to come just to see their faces.

Now that is what I call youth ministry.

camp was awesome. Kids went to the alter and poured their hearts out to God it was incredible.

Sometimes, we have to say no, to those others things and focus on what's important. If you can't minister to your own kids how can you to someone else's.

Well, you've read and heard me talking about the different conversations I've had with my kids of all ages. They rarely fail to surprise me. ;-) Personally, I love it. One thing I have learned is that when one of my kids wants to talk to me, it's important to drop what I'm doing and listen.

And I've always tried to do special things with my kids individually. Things we both enjoy. It's different for each of them. Fun stuff, though.
