Tonight the girls and I are going to the 4th grade program that Kim is directing. It has a cowboy theme and so the girls thought that we should "get all cowboyed up" for it. They went downstairs and got on their chosen cowboy best and came back up to show me. They had the hats and boots and sheriff stars and of course their gunbelts and guns. I told them that we were going to have to leave the guns at home since the kids in the program were not allowed to bring guns. After seeing their sadness I attempted to cheer them up and said that they could still wear their belts if they wanted. My Arianwyn gave me one of those "silly daddy you just don't understand" looks and matter of factly said --
"DADDY, A COWBOY NEVER WEARS A BELT WITHOUT A GUN"
I couldn't be more proud!!!
