It has been such a joy to watch him grow and change over the last year. He keeps us on our toes with his constant questions trying to figure life out, and brings us great joy with his tender spirit. He loves school and learning so many new things. He has become a fantastic big brother, always watching out for his little brothers. It has been amazing to watch the Holy Spirit work in his heart bringing conviction and teaching him to live the way God wants him to. We are so thankful for the last 6 years the Lord has blessed us with his presence in our lives. We love his intense spirit and the way he goes after life full throttle. He has such a tender heart towards those who don't know the Lord and we pray that he will keep that for the rest of his life.
This is a pic of the big man when he was around the age our little man is right now.
Now here he is at 6!
The gift he got from my parents was these things called moon shoes. You strap them on your feet and can bounce. So when we were at our conference I called to see how things were going at home. I find our from my dad about another instance of brothers pushing each other to crazy things. The two older boys were up on the roof of where we store our fire wood along the house. The big man has his moon shoes on up there and is being told "do it, do it" by the middle man. My dad finds out that the plan was for the big man to jump down onto the deck with the shoes on...not a good idea! He has quite the time talking him out of it with the middle man pushing him. Those crazy boys!
