From the Mouths of Babes: the story of Easter.

Cannon is in a Lutheran Preschool 2 days a week and he loves it. He has learned so much and we are so proud of him. Well the other day he came home and was talking about Easter. He told me that "Easter is when Jesus died on the cross." I told him that was correct. He continued " Yep mommy Jesus died on the cross and there were people who threw rocks at him and that wasn't nice and then Jesus went to the big rock and it disappeared and Jesus went up to Kevin and then Kevin fixed him."
I tried to re-tell his story to him like this "Jesus died on the cross and then he was taken to a Tomb and the cave was covered by a large stone. When Mary Magdalene went to the tomb the stone had been moved and Jesus' body was gone. He had gone to HEAVEN (not Kevin) and lived eternally." Cannon told me that I was Wrong that Jesus went to KEVIN! silly kid.

I love that boy and the funny things he says.

As I walked to one of my classes in Kelley Hall at Western State College I saw people in tears, not just tears but Sobbing. I wondered what was going on and as I approached the steps to go to my class I met the eyes of people who were both terrified and heartbroken for what had happened. 2 High School students had gone on a killing rampage at Columbine High School, a school only a few miles from where I had grown up. A school in the same district as the HS i went to. I had friends there and knew people who had siblings that were still attending. My heart sank. Who could do this? Why would they do this?

That was 12 years ago today... Now we know that these 2 individuals were bullied and picked on and they decided to take it out their way. The thing that had always bothered me about what they did was they didn't go after the kids who picked on them, they went after people who would have tried to help them had they known how they were feeling. I remember watching the events of that day unfold as we learned so much about those people that lost so much that day. Rachel Scott, Lauren Townsend, Dave Sanders... all leaders amongst their friends and family, all willing and eager to help out. Why them? I guess when God sends us Angels he has to take them home sooner than we want him to. It still bothers me so much that this happened so close to MY Home.

Feel the burn

Ok so I have started my Slim in 6 work out program again... I am so out of shape. I know that it's ok for me to be this way since I had a baby only 7 months ago but WOW I am SOOOOO Out of shape. I am excited about doing the program and after my 6 weeks I am going to step it up and join my hubby doing the P90X program. I didn't start with that one cause I am pretty sure it would kill me. I am loving the "burn" you get from working out I just never take the time to do it but I have commited to it so that I can lose 30-50 pounds in 2011. Wish me Luck.
