The Crazy Places I Find Them

Kyle is on his way home from Canada.
He left Sunday morning headed to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
The purpose of his trip was to meet up with the Olympic Bible Project team and tell some people about Jesus. I am excited that he had the chance to go. Can't wait to hear the stories that he has to tell. I made sure that he took his camera so that I could share some pictures with all of you out there in blog land. Even though he is only a few hours away he is in another country so we haven't spent the extra money to talk on the phone...just settled for the text messages. So today I got a text that he was at an Olympic Hockey Game!

As for me and the boys...we've been holding down the fort here in DuPont....they don't have a clue what the Olympics are all about but we've been doing enough "pirating" that if "pirating" ever becomes and Olympic sport I know some sure fire gold medal contenders.
Just look at this practice...

Kade has even gotten good at letting Ryne "train" with him to be the best pirate ever!

And lately when Kade isn't playing pirates with his own eyepatch and sword or playing with his pirate ship and pirate figures (which, by the way, he thanks Jesus for every night when we pray) he has taken to drawing pirates...

So "pirating" seems to be the sport of choice in the Lewallen household for now.
Seriously, even Ryne brings us an eyepatch to put on him and he runs for his sword and starts swinging it while belting out the biggest and loudest "AARRGG" he can muster up. I must get video of that for you sometime, you will crack up!

And if they take a break from "pirating" here are the places I'm likely to find them...

Yep, he got right in but couldn't quite manage to get himself out of that dryer.

And only moments later I hear Kade call out, "Momma, I think I'm stuck, can you help me?"

What makes a kid even want to crawl into a laundry basket that he obviously cannot fit into?
At least they do make me laugh!
