Mutton Bustin'

Wooooohooooo! And after the tears dried up he said he had fun! Poor kid! (His buddy was crying before he even got on, and at least 3 of the 10 kids surrendered before they started. I was TERRIFIED!)

Nile's Very First Wrestling Match

He won 10 to 0!  And got 3rd in his bracket (out of 4).  I have never seen him so passionate and serious about something!  Little stinker!

Don't touch my sister!

(Overheard from the basement at the sitter's house this afternoon after Nile sprinted down there to lay down the law) 

But if you accidentally touch her, wash your hands... 
Or you're gonna get PUKE EYE!" 

I think that might even be worse than pink eye.

Pondering his future...

Just another conversation on our ride to the store:
"You know mom, I'm going to marry a pretty girl someday.  I would marry Aunt Lori, but Uncle Bill found her first.  And I would marry Hannah, but she has a boyfriend.  She looked for a long time for a boyfriend before she found this guy.  He's a nice guy, but I don't think she will marry him.  She's too young.  She needs to go to college first.  And then get married.  And then have a baby.
"You know mom, pretty girls are happy.  You know how I know they are happy? Pretty girls laugh all of the time.  Aunt Lori always laughs at me.
"I probably won't find my pretty girl to marry until after college.  There are sure a lot of girls in the weerold, but it's gonna be hard to find one for me.
"And all of the pretty girls are in our family.  Dru's (his 6 year old cousin) pretty, but I could never marry her.  Jack (Dru's almost 3 year old brother) wouldn't like that.
"Maybe I'll just live with you forever.  I don't really neeeed a pretty girl.  You can always just laugh at me."
