I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Kaden's absolute favorite sport is Basketball, which is appropriate since he is 8 years old and almost 5 feet tall. This year he has had a really good year because his coordination is finally catching up to his body. He is awesome on defense and he even scored 2 baskets at his game the other night. (That is really good, because at this age, sometimes no one scores a basket the entire game.)
