A little practice for parenthood...

Last Saturday, Lee took the neighborhood kiddos to "Boondocks" to play mini-golf, ride go-karts, play video games, and play laser tag. I met the "boys" later on and it was a blast! It was soooo much fun to play! Lee was soooooo good with these rowdy boys! We learnd alot about parenthood---carrying coats, toys that were won, and giving out tokens like mad! They disappear fast! :)

I had to share what Clayton said as we departed and I left in my car and Lee/boys in his. "Hey guys! Where do we want to meet for lunch?" :) He clearly wasn't ready to go home...:)

Upon returning home I heard the clammor of feet on the roof. It startled me so I went outside to find the neighborhood boys in the driveway and Lee chucking parachute guys off the roof. The boys would catch them and toss them back up to Lee. It was adorable! :) Finally, the day ended up with a little impromptu football game in the street. Lee had asked me to dinner for Valentine's Day, but he came in and said he was far too exhausted for that. I was in agreement of ordering a pizza and staying home. :)

Here are some photos and a video of our adventures.

I forgot to share something else extra cute that Lee shared. After our Ethiopia culture night Lee came home and said "Wow, after seeing all the transracial families, I can really picture us being one. We'll fit right in." Its not that he is not on board to adopt, of course he is, but he could really picture it as a reality. :) I'm thankful for a guy who is GREAT with kids and that even though I almost had a heart attack, the footsteps on the rooftop only signals the great dad he will soon become...It makes my heart smile.
