I just wanted to share a funny story about Ian that I found out about this morning. Those of you that know Ian, know that he is very perceptive and nothing, I mean nothing gets past him. Sometimes it is very frustrating as a parent when you want to do something without the kids noticing or when you do something accidentally and really hope they didnt notice.... Well Ian is always right there to point it out, whatever it may be...... However, sometimes it is awesome the way he notices everything. Here is the email I received this morning from Ian's cub scout den leader:

~By the way, I wanted to tell you something about Ian. He is
such a great boy! After our last Den Meeting before Christmas, I got my
hair cut and colored, nothing drastic or anything, but at our first meeting back in January, Ian looked at me and asked me about my hair.
"Did you get your hair cut, the color looks a little different."
"I did Ian-- I can't believe that you noticed."

"It looks really nice, it's lighter."
I could not believe it, no one in my family noticed, but one of my scouts did? I loved it, and it really made my week! Thanks for raising such a great boy! ~

Its always nice to hear that your efforts to raise kind, considerate children are actually working. Thanks Ian......I love you and am very proud of you! :)
