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.

WOW!! Those birds don't even look real!! That's probably what they were saying about the boys..."Nah, those can't be real boys, let's fly on in!"
