5 Year Old Sweetness......

Thursday evening we sent Myshel off to Youth Conference. Her leader picked her up around 5:30PM. They had about an hour's drive ahead of them, so we let her take our portable DVD player for the drive. She was there until Saturday night when we had to go and pick her up in the town where they had the conference.

Chad and I were talking Friday night about how quiet the house was without Myshel home. It really was much quieter. A little while after this conversation, Noah came and asked us when Myshel would be home. My heart melted a little, I couldn't help but think that it was so cute that he missed his big sister, too and wanted her home. Chad was thinking the same thing. This is how the conversation went.

Noah: "When is Myshel coming home?"
Chad: "She won't be home until tomorrow night, when we go get her."
Me (thinking "ohhhhh, how sweet"): "Why, Bud? Do you miss her?"
Noah: "No, I miss the DVD player!"
So much for that sweet little boy!

Myshel had a pretty good time at youth conference. I think she had more fun than she let on. Apparently there's a boy that "shadowed" her and her friends all day Saturday. Chad and I teased her that he must have liked her. She said, "yeah, probably, but it was just creapy!". You just keep thinking that, Myshel! Boys=Creapy!

That was such a cute conversation. My Zach just got his first girlfriend this last week. I was not ready for him to get to this point yet. I've had a hard time thinking that he is growing up.
