We started out with Joshua using a hair clip (isn't that what they are made for?) as shark teeth to bite at Uncle Ben. The car just filled with laughter.
As mentioned before, we must live in faith and not in fear. We must pray and then leave the results up to the one Who knows the end results. What better way to look at the discouraging news in the eye and say, "I have the courage to live", then to do just that.
Now second generation comes to the same pumpkin patch that we have visited for 16 years.
Bill took a half-day off from work. After reading a quote on Kim's Field of Dreams, I decided the quote was right. I was tired of just trying to make a living without living. My husband has had his feet to the income wheel, without a break, for over year. I invited him to come join Benjamin and I in taking two of our grands to the pumpkin patch.
Tradition...you all get measured. What is funny is this is probably the only record I have of must of my children's heights. Benjamin started off. I had picked him up from school so he is wearing his school uniform. This was teacher/parent conference week. May I say, my youngest is doing excellent in school. The reports were just overwhelming praise and grades for Benjamin. He has adjusted well to school and I am starting to also.
This is Joshua's second year. He says "cheese" when you want a picture and holds the "cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"
Age 3 and has his Grand Mommy's heart wrapped around his finger.
This is Maverick's first year and I was determined to get him measured. He wasn't too thrilled to stand up with us whistling for him to look up at Grand Daddy. He will pay me back for this one day.
He us all smiles, which just melts your heart.
Picture with my boys and Joshua with "cheeeeeeeesssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeee".
Now I must do something about that grey in my hair. I am never pleased with pictures of myself, but I am so tired of all the years of not having me in anything, that I am determined to change that. I was at all those events...................just taking the pictures.
Grand Daddy - Dad... enjoyed the day with us. He and Mav became friends, which is what I called their bonding time. Little Mav just giggled and giggled with his Grand Daddy. Benjamin and I were running to keep up with Joshua. Bounce houses, wagons, hay ride, pumpkins, snow cones, horses =living life.
I think this says it all. We all just need to rest in our Father's lap and look for His guidance and relax.
This eleven month old seems to understand that concept.
Have a wonderful weekend.
