Owen and Diego are two of the few Children who attend our church. When church started this morning, Owen was the only child there so he and I did acolyte duty together. Owen didn't want to but he reluctantly helped his Gingie since he is the expert and I am the novice.
Before it was time for the children's sermon, Diego and his sister arrived with their Grandma. Owen was so happy that he hugged Diego and they happily danced their way to the front of the church to help Herwannah with her children's message.
After church, Diego announced that it would be OK with his mom if he came home with us after church. He joined us for a Subway/Sonic lunch and then fun and frivolity at MeMe's and then back at our house. These two boys can fuss like brothers and have fun like best friends. They beg to spend time together and then they spend their time in separate activities. Diego played with toys in the living room with me while Owen was in the back with Pa on the computer. Later they went upstairs. Diego played Mario carts on the Wii in one room while Owen played with trains in another.
Daryl (Pa) grew up in this same church going home with Herwannah after church. Herwannah's son is like a brother to Daryl and I hope I am seeing history repeat itself.
