I love that Proverb that says: “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
I am trying to do that with my kids and tonight I was so proud. We were carrying Kelli out for dinner to celebrate mothers day and we chose to go to Smokey Bones. When we got there we found out that Smokey Bones is closed (it looks like for good), so we changed our plans to eating at Macaroni Grill.
During the meal my oldest son Noah suggested that we should pause 5 seconds in honor of Smokey Bones (he said, “that was a good restaurant”) . How awesome is that. As if that wasn’t enough, later during the meal we started talking about nascar and again Noah suggested that we pause for 7 seconds to honor the late Dale Earnhadht. I don’t know if my other two kids are getting it but Noah has embedded some important things in his heart!
