Watching the flowers grow...

The sweet boy painted this picture. He presented it to me with a story.
Mom - This is a picture of you watching the flowers and me grow.

He has insight. I am watching him grow and grow quickly. My heart wants him to stay in his sweet boy stage. He is thoughtful, kind, helpful, and a little sassy at times. Mary watched her Son "increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man." I would like to follow the example of Mary and help my sons grow in intelligence, physical prowess, spiritually, and socially. We have started to talk about going to school next year and how excited he is to go to "high school" (elementary). We have some specific lessons to learn together before we make the school leap together.

Sigh....it never is the same after they go off to "high school." But so many fun adventures for them- I guess it's worth it! Barely.
