13 Things About Cheney Boy

My son Cheney is away on a high school retreat, so I thought I would write 13 things about him since I miss him!

1. Cheney is a morning person (big time!) and always has been.

2. Cheney loves Jesus and really wants to be a good man someday. (I think he's on his way.)

3. Cheney really likes pretty girls.

4. Cheney is very helpful around the house, but does forget to take the trash to the end of the road quite often.

5. Cheney is very strong, especially now that he has big muscles, and helps me carry heavy things.

6. Cheney used to sound just like his sister Bethany and then his voice started to change and he sounded just like his sister Ashleigh and now he sounds exactly like his Dad. He likes it much better this way!

7. Cheney is a junior in high school (I feel a little tear forming in my eye!)

8. Cheney loves to play soccer.

9. Cheney really likes being in plays. (Martha, do you remember all of our plays with Mrs. Beaver??? It has really stuck with him!) A couple years ago, he played a really sinister man with a big scar (Arsenic and Old Lace) and the night before opening night, he jumped over a banister and scraped the entire left side of his face!

10. Cheney had his first stitches when he was 10 months old. That was when I thought it would be a really good idea to put him in a padded room.

11. Cheney is 6 feet and 1 inch, but his goal is 6'4". I guess it is good to have goals.

12. Cheney is learning to play the guitar.

13. Cheney has a little brother who can not talk or walk and Cheney has always been such a good older brother. Every time Davin sees Cheney it is like the most exciting thing ever. From the time the boys were little, Cheney would carry Davin downstairs so they could watch cartoons together. His brother thinks he is the best ever and so do I!

Why is it so hard to figure out how to get pictures on my blog???? Can someone help me?

Bethany said...

When writing a new post: Right next to the spell check button is the photo button. Once the photo window opens, click browse to find a picture from your computer. Not too hard.

For a while, when I first got blogger, the photo window wasn't coming up. Either blogger fixed it or I had too strong of a pop-up window protector. But it should work!

Heather said...

Thanks Bethany. You will know if it works if you soon see a picture of Cheney!

he is very hansome and looks like fun. :)

Martha said...

Yup, that looks like Cheney, only he has hair.

Oh yes, the plays. Cheney often has a starring role, didn't he? I have some pictures around here somewhere...

Martha said...

Cheney "had" starring roles in Mrs. Beaver's plays.

Remember Fat, fat Jehosaphat?

Heather said...

Yes, I do, Martha. He did not like being in the plays so much back then, but he really likes it now. I have some pictures from that play of our "little" kids! So cute.

Don't we love our boys? (I have two, too! 24 and 19)
Cheney Boy looks great.
Thanks for your visit on my blog today.

Cheney is a handsome boy! He sounds nice too. Thanks for helping us get to know Cheney. I look forward to hearing about your other kids some day.
