We've adopted another son!

Just kidding. Actually, we're keeping our friends' son, Jacob, for the weekend while they attend a homeopathy seminar. Jacob is the boy I (not so) secretly want to grow up and marry my Elena. He's such a great kid - smart, loves the Lord, and has a great sense of humor. He's also the son of one of my best friends, so I know him very well! Jacob and Elena are great friends and have been since they were babies.
In the van, Elena quietly asked me if she could marry Jake. I said, "Not now, but maybe when you're older." Jake overheard and asked, "What'd Elena say?" The girls all replied, "Nothing!" repeatedly as he kept asking. (I'm pretty sure he heard what she said the first time.) Finally I told him and he smiled and gave an embarrassed laugh.

I wish I had video of these two interacting together. Jake is such a gentleman with Elena. He holds doors open for her and is always watching out for her.
We're all having a lot of fun with Jacob this weekend:

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I'm going to need some background info on this young man before I give him Elena's hand!

He's Ed & Gretchen's son. Need I say more?
