Aiden and I were having our morning cuddle on the couch when he says to me, completely out of the blue, "If someone you love dies, and you want to be with them, then you have to die too." Of course hearing this makes me heart skip a beat and make me a little sick to my stomach. I explained to him that if someone you love dies, even though they are in heaven, you can still talk to them and they can hear you. I also explained that you didn't want to die too because there are too many people that would miss you and someday you will be together in heaven. Then....... I finally got where he was going with this. He replied "But Jesus is dead. And God is always with us even when we are alone and lost. He always loves us and we can always talk to him" My heart just melted hearing him tell me all of his. He IS listening in preschool and what he hears really does stick with him. There is hope for my little wild man.

Today Aiden finally had his first day of school. It was hard for him to see his big brothers go off to school last week and know he still had to wait to go himself. Today was the big day and he was so excited. He was ready to go long before me!
I managed to get a picture of him with his big brothers before they left for school.
When we got to school, he hung up his bag, turned his name around to show he was here and found his name at the table. He went right to work drawing some pretty flowers for me and chatted with his friend Gabe. They share a love of Transformers and other action figures.
I snapped a pic on the way into his classroom also. My baby is such a big guy now.

We spent a couple of hours down there and then went up to the playground and played. We all worked up an appetite so on the way home the boys and I got some lunch at KFC. What a fun day to end summer vacation.

Last Saturday was the 3rd annual Tri-ing to Help Triathlon put on by the Quincy Multisport Club. For the 3rd year, Todd was race director and I was so proud of him and his hard work to put this race together to raise money for a good cause. This year the money was raised for His Ranch over in Taylor, MO. The couple that owns this ranch raced for the first time last year and their whole family raced this year. This is a picture taken after the adults race and before the kids race with all the racers.
Drew diving in.

Today I uploaded all of my scenic pictures. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves because words don't do them justice. And if you think the pictures are pretty, it doesn't even begin to compare to what it looks like in person. The Rocky Mountains never fail to leave me speechless and in complete awe of their beauty.
