The sophistication of kids these days

Yesterday, I managed to get the kids ready for the 9 o'clock service at church. And then in the afternoon, we all went to watch Clayton's soccer. Kendall had to come along since Pete is out of town. Something happened midway in the soccer match and Clayton seemed to "get it." He was going after the ball and kicking it in the right direction. Afterwards, I thought we needed a little treat, so I took the kids to Dairy Queen.

When I was six years old, I had never tasted French cheeses, played on the computer, traveled to Europe or eaten at fancy restaurants. Kendall definitely has a different life than I did. I married into a well traveled family that has experienced different cultures, foods, etc. I love it that Kendall is experiencing these things at such a young age. So, we were eating at DQ yesterday, enjoying our Blizzards, and Kendall asked me, with a straight face, "do they have a chef here?" I guess to a 6 year old, a Blizzard is something that surely took creativity and ranks up there in the "haute cuisine" world.

Sometimes I think diner's have better food than fancy restaurants!

That is so cute! I am glad that my parents (although they had a tight budget) always took us abroad and gave us different foods. :)
