Zach and family spent the fall (September, October & part of November) with Jenn's family in Toronto, Ontario, Canada while Todd did his 10-week Theological School practicum at the Olivet New Church. It was a BUSY autumn!!

Some cute Zach-isms:

- Zach surprises some of us with his vocabulary: "upper case," "lower case," "ottoman" - such grown-up words for such a little guy!

- Zach to Daddy as Daddy was Zach-pressing him: "You told me not to have fun, but I'm having too much fun!" :=D (This becomes a recurring theme in our lives... Zach having too much fun!) (And prohibiting him from having too much fun has the pleasant result of putting him at ease in new situations!)

- "Does the Lord have freckles?" "That's a good question! The Word says we're made in the image of the Lord, so maybe, yes." "I think the Lord has freckles." :=>

- "What are you doing, Daddy?" "Resting." "...Here, you need a buddy." "Thanks, Zach." "...Do you want me to turn the lights off?" "Sure, please. Thanks!" (Such a little caregiver! :=) )

- Zach confuses Mommy a bit when he refers to the "fisherman" during play; she then realizes he's talking about the "Fisherman Price" (Fisher Price) figures! :=D

- Zach & Mommy heaped wood chips into a 'volcano'; after explaining "errupt," we "errupted" them - "Let's make them interrupt, Mommy!"

- He tells his first knock-knock joke! "Knock knock." "Who's there?" "Nobody." "Nobody who?" "...Nobody." (Let the fun begin! :=) )

- Zach takes Grampa's illness in stride, more interested in his vomit than repulsed. :=} He doesn't shy away from him, and gladly gives him very gentle good-night hugs. Grampa left us for the spiritual world on October 28, 2010. You'll forever be in our hearts, Grampa! xoxoxo
