Nathan got off the bus the other day and when he got in the car he turned my attention to a very cute, blonde headed little girl. He said, "Mom, see that little girl over there?" I told him that I did and that she was very cute. He continued to explain to me that everyday when she gets off the bus, she stops at his seat and rubs her hands down his arms and says, "Bye Nathan, I love you." I think I said something to the effect of how sweet that was and he said, "mom, she's only in first grade." I tried to explain to him that she looks up to him and admires him. He didn't buy it. He said, "It's really disturbing."
Todd and I are from Lithia, Florida. We have one son, Nathan, and he is 8 years old. Todd worked for a construction company for 27 years as a safety manager. I taught ninth grade physical science for 14 years and for the last eight years, I have been a stay at home wife/mom. We are missionary associates, and lived in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Our primary work there was with a small struggling church in Anchovy. Anchovy is located about 5 miles outside of Montego Bay and is a very poor community.
