I turned the corner into Tim & Karin's development just as Isaiah was heading for home. Isaiah was having a great time, laughing and joking with a group of classmates. I quickly pulled over, a smiling Isaiah looked up and climbed into my van. I turned into the first street, turning away from the 'Hennhouse'. I then headed away from development. Repeatedly Isaiah asked where his MOM was and where were we going. There was a moment or two of nervousness, till Karin called. He giggled when I told her I had kidnapped her son and was demanding a ransom. Once he talked to her he was ok, especially when I pulled into his favorite restaurant--Steak 'n Shake.

I'm not sure he stopped talking--he reminded me of my Grandmother, she often was the last one done eating cuz she enjoyed talking to her family.

The greatest part of the kidnapping was when Isaiah walked me out to my van and told
me 'I love you.' Smiling, he returned to the warm, cozy Henn Home.

He told you "I love you." Unsolicited. And now, he hasn't stopped talking about being "kidnapped" by Mimi.

How fun! It is so wonderful that you took special time to spend with Isaiah!

Awesome story. Yeah, he even told me he got kidnapped. That's a fun memory.
