Two year old Eli’s tummy was rumbling, as his family drove home from a Sunday outing.
Suddenly he piped up , “Da, E (the name he calls himself) got animals in bum.”
Jord and Melissa looked at each other, frowned in confusion and asked him to repeat his statement. Which he did. Exactly as the first time.
Jord said, “Ok, well, we will see if we can get them out when we get home.”
Eli was fine with that. He matter of factly agreed, “Yep, get out animals, brush teeth and go to bed.” Just part of his daily routine!!

An elaborately trained little fellow who had nightly to pray for blessings on “mamma, and papa, grandpapa, and grandmamma,” and all his uncles, his aunts, and his cousins, committing each by name, after exhausting the catalogue one evening, heaved a heavy sigh and exclaimed wearily, “Oh, dear, I wish these people would pray for themselves, for I am so tired of praying for them all!”

Happy Birthday Canada. You are glorious and free, and blessed with some amazing kids!
