Imagination Station with Sam

I had just gotten the 3 littlest ones down for a nap, Sam and I were trying to decide how we would spend our time together after we did the dishes. In the middle of our brainstorming session, Sam made this announcement, "Did you know I work as a policeman?" Thinking on my feet, I said, "No, tell me about it." This was all the encouragement he needed - the kid has an imagination in overdrive! He went on and on telling me about how "criminals and bandits are trying to take the food away from God's people and little children. We cannot stand for that, Mom. I have to go downstairs to get my cape and my boots. I need boots because it's raining." Then he went off to save the world...wearing his superman cape and his rain boots. What a joy!

It's a deal, Sarah! :) Why stop at only one arranged marriage...you know I have 4 sons, right?

Just bear in mind the Johnson (male) legacy of wisdom re: marriage (passed on to me by my dad):

"Marry for money, son. You can always learn to love'em later...."

Thank you for the visit and the comment.
By the way I am the oldest daughter in our family, my mom does not blog. And you are right it does take a lot of time and love to take care of all our children, but the big the family the more people that love you as will as the more to love. :)

Gotta love our imaginative boys! Praise God that already they are using their manly talent and developing the need and desire to protect and defend!
