The First Time Ever Zane Saw Her Face

Ahh, the beauty of young love.




Zane met the first gal of his dreams this weekend at Family Camp in Saugatuck, Michigan. In years past, we have either had our own cabin, or shared it with a family from our church, but this year, cupid intervened and booked us into Elderberry with the Gaertner's, a family from Glen Ellyn.

We really did click with with them, but apparently, it was Zane who came away most changed from his new crush on eight year old Emily, who, in Zane's words, " . . . has a very nice face."

And while the weekend schedule didn't allow time for a discussion about arranged marriage, we're hopeful.

Harper and Emily hit it off as well, and it warmed my heart to hear her ask, "Emily, is 2nd grade hard?" They had a blast making funny video's on my camera, and I think meeting Emily inspired Harper to hit the books, as evidenced by her needing to tackle Chapter One of another Magic Treehouse book late one evening at 11:00 PM. There was no convincing her to start the book the next day. Nope. 11:00 PM it was.

Zane has asked several times when we're headed back to Family Camp, which he described as "perfect". I'm glad you think so little man.

One tip, son. Get that potty training done. Come on now. You know what I'm talking about. Truly, it will make you even more irresistible.

It's just a thought.

I don't mean to meddle.
