conversations with Doug - part one

We hosted our couples' Bible study Friday night.

Hubs was at school that night and I was upstairs putting Squirt to bed.  Doug was sitting at the breakfast bar with our three oldest boys.

Something about the Y causes male conversations to drift into the sports arena quite often, and Doug asked the boys if they have a favorite baseball team.

When they answered no (which is a lie because we are ALL Cubs fans, it's mandatory in this house), Doug suggested that they should consider the Boston Red Sox because they have won two of the last five World Series.

Now, Hunter and I have been working on fractions in math.

He sat quiet and expressionless for a moment.  He then turned to Doug and slowly and deliberately said, "Mr. S., I don't think they are trying hard enough."

That boy knows fractions!

Doug immediately sent a text to my hubby explaining the conversation.

Hubby immediately responded with, "Classic.  He has high expectations. :) Try being his father...."


  1. I was thinking you were going to post about our other conversations with Doug...our intense bible study discussions! =) Proud of Brendan for doing so well with fractions.

  2. Kenyon is so funny! Can't wait to read part 2. Love ya

  3. Out of the mouths of babes. Hilarious!

  4. Mike Greene here...I am saddened by the fact that your family chooses to root for the Cubs. You know what Cubs stands for right....Completely Useless By September. Go Cards!!!!


About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
