Mr. Patience

AKA: Mikey

A couple of weeks ago we were able to go to Zack's parent's cabin for a small break before school started up again.

We had a very relaxing time. I cooked, cooked, and cooked some more (Aaaah, food. How do I love thee?).

Zack took the kids for rides on the ATVs. Zacky rode the ATV over and over again, and Tommy drove one for the first time. Shhhh, don't tell.

Scotty played with his cars and colored. Yes, we drove 2 solid hours to have him stay inside and play with his cars. Oh well, he was happy which means I was happy.

Emily sat on the pot 75% of the time. Yep, she's still enjoying the potty training issues. It seems we have had a set back. We were done too, dang it!

Sorry, I digress.

I have never seen a boy have as much patience as Mikey did while we were there. He would, for several hours straight, stand and watch for hummingbirds to come and visit with him. He would become a frozen statue and that's not too typical of a young boy, but for one with ADD? That's unheard of. He is in LOVE with birds.

Gotta Go Big Time!

Should I take this as a hint that we keep our A/C on too low? Scotty has even been seen wearing his winter coat around the house this summer.

Later the same day:

All because of these guys: Big Time Rush

Notice the winter clothing?

He does everything just like they do...remember when I threw out his birthday cake because he didn't want to do his chores? (I had forgotten an ingredient, but he didn't know) I had hoped for buckets of tears, but all he said was, "That is so not cool mom!". I think he may be growing up a little too fast. His favorite is Logan, 2nd from the right. Scotty jams to their theme song several times a day and awesome at it...someday, maybe I'll put a video of it on here.

Hey! Hey! Listen to your heart, now!
Hey! Hey! Don't you feel the rush?
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!
