Big Brother...Little Brother...

...and when they get along, life is good!  I walked into the living room this morning and Jaden was "reading" to Jaxon.  It was the sweetest thing!  No, Jaden can't really read yet (just a few recognizable words), but it is amazing to me how he can remember a book even after you read it to him just once.  So, he and Jaxon were reading one of our library books "Froggy Plays Soccer."  It's one of their favorites. 

We've been talking about soccer and being a good sport this week.  Jaden has his first soccer game tomorrow and he is very excited!  And he's even more excited that his dad is coaching his team.  I think every day this week he has told Jason how glad he is that he's his coach.  

I'll post some photos tomorrow of the first game, so be looking for that.  

Here's our memory verse for this week.  It's proven to be a good one to learn and a good teaching scripture for young boys.  :-)
" to others what you would have them do to you..."  -- Matthew 7:12

That is so sweet! I love to see kids "reading" books! I will have to get their surprise in the mail "Froggy Plays Soccer". I also got "Froggy Plays TBall" this week to send too!
