Oh, That Flirting Fellow
Ethan is such a cutie pie that I dread the teen years. As for Abbey, well, that problem is already solved. We are forming a Pentecostal Convent and she will be residing there from age 12 until 30. Focusing on God and only God. At 30, she can marry the guy that her father chooses. If he finds one that is good enough. Do I think that we are being overprotective? Overprotective? What is this word? I am unfamiliar with it.
But Ethan, he is quickly working his way into the Convent. Last Sunday night, during pre-service prayer, he was smiling and flirting with Amber. Theirs is a relationship that I have been trying to figure out how to write about for many years. They are two months apart in age. From the time they could sit up, they have been sharing toys and fighting over toys and one day loving each other to death and the next day hating each other with a hate that normally only happens in siblings. You never know how it is going to go. But, there is one thing for sure, they know how to push each others buttons. Once, Amber sat down beside Ethan and he immediately started crying. When David (Amber's dad) ask Ethan what was wrong, he replied, "I don't want her sitting beside me because she talks too much!" Yeah... like I said, a love hate relationship.
Anyway, last Sunday night was a "love" day. Ethan was flirting up a storm and Amber was loving it. When I ask Ethan if he was flirting, he ask me what flirting was. I told him that it was when you "smile and make pretty eyes at a girl". He promptly looked at me and started smiling and batting his eyelashes! Ahh, a flirt and a quick learner. Yeah, he is definitely joining his sister in the convent!!
Is old enough to vote, now old enough to be president. I have 1 wonderful husband and 2 marvelous kids. I live and work in Taiwan with the afore mentioned husband and kids. We have been missionaries here together since 2001, but Chris landed on the island back in 1981. He has been leaving his mark ever since. I came as a new bride with her head in the clouds and it helped tremendously with culture shock! If you want to know anything else about us, you will just have to read the posts.
