Colton's Field Day

With Abigail coming at the right time I was able to go to Colton's Field day since I took the whole week off. Colton did awesome. He loves to play games, so field day is like Heaven to him. Rather than me tell you all about it, I will let the pictures do the talking:

Colton and his good buddy Griffin
Colton playing cup stack (or just holding the cups)
Colton's version of the limbo

Again with the obsticle course
Colton long jumping (I think he broke the world record)This was pick up a bunch of stuff and run as fast as you can
This is Colton and his girlfriend Kyla (Her name is tough to spell, pronounce with a long i)
Colton doing his best at tug-of-war
Colton doing what he does best...Dancing
Now a day's they don't want to hurt anyone's feelings so they only hand out one ribbon at the end of the day. Colton still had a blast and has already told us that he can't wait for his 2nd grade field day.

Biggest Heart Ever.

So, most of you know Colton and you know how big of a heart he really has. On Wednesday I went to pick Colton up from his bio-dad's apartment. Colton usually just moseys his way out of the apartment, taking his grand 'ol time. Well, this past Wednesday, Colton comes out of the apartment and comes up to me almost running. As he approaches me he has worried look on his face and he asks, "Dad, is Ace at our house?"
I replied, "No goof ball, he is right inside the truck."
Colton then had look of relief on his face. Colton then said, "I made Ace some missing dog signs that we can hang up."
I asked, "Why would we do that?"
Colton answered, "Because Ace was at my school yesterday and he was lost. Lex and I was trying to yell at him and get him to come to me, but Ms. S (the recess teacher) told us to stay away from him. So, I was worried that Ace was lost and the dog catcher would get him, so I made him some signs."

To back track a little, about a month ago I got a phone call from a teacher at Colton's school, who had Ace, who had jumped our 6 foot privacy fence and ran to Colton's school (about 3/4 of a mile from our house). When Heather had come home on Tuesday from the doctor she notices Ace was gone. She then heard him bark outside and notice our neighbor letting him out of their gate across the street. She went outside and Andy (our friendly neighbor across the street) said he noticed Ace running back and forth in our front yard trying to get back into the back yard. Andy told Heather he went over and got him and gave him some water.

Our dog is CRAZY! So, on Tuesday he had jumped our 6 foot fence again, ran to Colton's school, said hi to Colton, ran back to our house, got invited into our neighbors house, had some water, then finally came home when Heather got home.

I scanned in one of the pictures that Colton had drawn. This boy is amazing:
