So, it was driver's license renewal time.  New one came in the mail today.  Jenna inspected it and asked why in the world I would say yes to being an organ donor.  I answered that (although the alternative is creepy) it seems pretty selfish to me to keep my organs if I am not using them.  Tyler joined the conversation and said that the idea of someone taking your eyes out is disgusting.  I said it didn't have to be eyes, maybe someone is dying of heart disease and needs a heart.  He thought about it for a minute then said, "That's even more weird.  They would end up loving people they don't even know."  I think I would love Tyler even if I didn't know him :)

Two and a half years later....

Today is Tyler's first day of fourth grade! His favorite color is green (still,)his favorite movie is Aladdin, his favorite food is chili cheese dogs, although ice cream, pizza and soda are close seconds. Ty is one of the tallest kids in his class (56".) He loves all things electronic, Scooby Doo, soccer, basketball and swimming. The most recent Tylerism: We went to a park a few weeks ago and Jenna fell and cut up her legs. I told her to wash them off in the sprinklers then we could clean them up when we got home. Ty asked if he could run through the sprinklers and I told him no because it was secondary (canal) water. We got home and we were making dinner. Ty was standing by the sink with me so I flicked some water at him. He yelled, "EW, why are you flicking me with secondhand canoe water?!?!" I absolutely adore this energetic, thoughtful, intelligent, handsome son of mine!
