Jack on His Football Abilities

Age 9:

I walked into Jack's room one day and he showed me how he was kicking a football around.
Me: Be careful.  You don't want to hit the window.
Jack: Trust me. I'm a horrible kicker.  There's no chance of that.

Age 9:

One of Jack's favorite shows is Survivor.  One night, while discussing his favorite person on the show, he turned to us and said, "He is my favorite.  We have similar emotions and similar lifestyles."

Jack on Fears

Age 9:

I was in the middle of decorating for the holidays when Jack came down the stairs.  He noticed a little snowman that I have that attaches to a candle.

He turned to me and said, "I have two fears in life. Number 1 is clowns.  Number 2 is tiny things in awkward positions."

Jack on Putting His Sorries in a Sack

Age 9:

Jack came upstairs the other day with a pillow case slung over his shoulder.

"I'm putting my sorries in a sack.  And by sack, I mean pillowcase. And by sorries, I mean my Skylanders."

(Note: Skylanders are little toy figures)
