How To Really Love A Child:

How To Really Love A Child:

Be there. Say yes as often as possible. Let them bang on pots and pans. If they are crabby, put them in water. If they are unlovable, love yourself. Realize how important it is to be a child. Go to a movie theatre in your pajamas. Read books aloud with joy. Invent pleasures together. Remember how really small they are. Giggle a lot. Surprise them. Say no when necessary. Teach feelings. Heal your own inner child. Learn about parenting. Hug trees together. Make loving safe. Bake a cake together and eat it with your hands. Go find elephants and kiss them. Plan to build a rocket ship. Imagine yourself magic. Make lots of forts with blankets. Let your angel fly. Reveal your own dreams. Search out the positive. Keep the gleam in your eye. Mail letters to God. Encourage silly. Plant licorice in your garden. Open up. STOP YELLING. Express your love. A lot. Speak kindly. Paint their sneakers. Handle with caring.

This is Zac about 3 months I think.

Kings battle with diabetes is over...

We got king in 2002 during our trip to Kingsland, GA to visit mom and dad. This was also the same vacation trip that Dan proposed to me. King was only about 5 weeks old when we got him and we drove all the way back to Kansas with him... was so tiny, but his coloring was more like a Rottweiler or something... that is part of where the name came from and that we got him in Kingsland.
Right from the start.. King was the best dog ever.. listened and learned tricks very well.. We took him everywhere with us.. if we left the house.. King was with us.. He loved to go places and loved the car rides. He was smart too, if we were going out to Grandma Teresas house (at this time they had a huge house with a huge yard.. more room than a dog knew what to do with) King knew about 3 roads over that we were getting close to their house and started getting really excited in the car.. He was very smart.
Before we moved and before having Ryan and Tyler.. we went a lot of places and played that game Geocaching.. King loved those times.. He got to run and run.. He was such a hyper dog.. loved to play and run. We had a lot of great great times with him.
A little over a year ago King was doing strange things like drinking a lot and peeing in the house which is very very unusual for King. We finally took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. We were required to check his blood daily and give insulin shots daily as well.. This also meant that all the food and treats we were giving him had to stop. That was the hard part all this time with Ryan and Tyler feeding him the foods they didnt want to eat themselves.
For the most part this past year was not bad for King. However he did loose a bit of weight over this year, but up until this past two weeks and then this last week was really bad. But his battle with this disease if over and we are grateful for that.
Thanks everyone for the king wishes and thoughts of our great dog King.
And if any of you are wondering... NO we are not getting a new pets.

Now here are some pictures of King over the years.

Small Update

First off, we had a great time this past Memorial Weekend.. The weather was crud.. but Danny and Marie and Jack came to visit.. So mom and dad and great grandma came up as well.. We did the BBQ thing and it was great! Zac will be turning 14 this week, so we had a small family style bday party for him!! He was SUPER shocked!! We got him his very own Dell laptop for his birthday! He is the happiest 14 year old we know right now.. It was great seeing his face when he tore the wrapping off and saw that big Dell logo on the box.. LOL

Jack is getting so big, and I hope that we will see them more this summer, which by the way Danny and Marie said that they probably will try to get down a few times (being that they were not able to swim in our new pool due to the weather) Jack is such a handsome boy and so much fun to watch him play with Ryan and Tyler..

On another note.. Ryan is pretty much potty trained!! He is doing so great.. and we only have him in underwear during the day.. He is doing pretty good at night too.. but we are not risking it just yet.. LOL It is a big deal for us to have him potty trained.. what a huge relief.. now just to get Tyler potty trained as well..

Tonight in the kitchen while I was cooking dinner, Zac asks me what is in the microwave... I told him Pasta Sides.. he looked puzzled, then asked, isnt that something to kill things like bugs.. LOL I started laughing and said no.. that is called Pesticide. LOL Kids at all ages are funny.

Our kids are so funny!

As much as I miss the baby babies.. the bottles and the little cuddling, baby smelling babies.. It is so funny to watch them grow up.. To watch them play and learn.
