The Ninja

Yesterday I went with mom to a Halloween store to look at costumes for the kids. The kids were so funny. Liam wanted to be everything. I am excited that he is excited for Halloween. Before we found the ninja costumes we had a "Queen" (Lightning McQueen) costume, a mad doctor, spiderman, and a fire chief all for Liam. We all settled on the ninjas though because they got swords. When we got back to Mom's, the kids had to try them on. Lex actually transformed into the ninja. He had the scary ninja face and even breathed like a ninja. He kept telling me that he was a real ninja. Well, we had to go to the store and find him some church shoes. He had to wear his costume. At one point he told me that everyone thought he was cool and that everyone wished they had a cool kid like him. It is the cutest and funniest thing I've ever seen. Later we went to a party and Lex made a point to tell everyone who would listen that he was a ninja, a real ninja. I can't wait til Halloween!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
