As Boys Grow

I have had a difficult time this  school year accepting that my baby, (youngest of 4 boys) baby boy is coming into young adulthood. He starts high school in the Fall and with this coming upon us so quickly the thoughts of him starting college and leaving the nest are upon me. 

I just love and miss the legos everywhere, the cars, trucks and G.I. Joes scattered, the skateboard days, the outdoor fort building, even the endless skinned knees; only because I felt like the hero with a band-aid. 

As I have struggled with accepting that my baby, baby boy is growing up and the thoughts of him not needing me as he did when he was a little guy are hard to accept; he steals my phone without me even knowing it was missing. And why did he do this?

This is why.......




And my heart is full of love. A love that is endless for my babies; especially as they come into young adulthood and prepare to leave the nest. This endless love is a gift from God that I cherish.

 I will thank Thee, Lord all of my days for this kind of love and for the memories along the way. You are a God of love ~ a love we have learned from YOU.

Summer Reads

I found this link that gives even more ideas for our Reading List/Summer Reading Bucket List. 

We have been slacking (a lot) so I am hoping this helps get us back on track (with some vintage flair).
