Saturday, after Nick's swim lesson, I took the boys to the local library to check out a book and movie each. Jack checked out a Thomas the Tank Engine book and Thomas the Tank Engine movie...because Thomas has ruled his life since he was two years old. He's now seven, by the way.
At the dinner table Sunday night, we were discussing the Advent wreath after lighting three of the candles. This week's candle symbolizes Joy, so I asked each person what gave them joy.
George: My family gives me joy.
Nick: My family and friends.
Jack: God! No. Thomas. I love Thomas.
At least he thought of God first.
