I am still learning about how different boys are than girls. This little guy seems to challenge me everyday, not in a bad way just a boy way. He is a boy who is very active and I am still learning that I need to let him get his energy out. I have had many moms tell me that boys need to be outside so they can run and play. Well it is winter now and having 6 girls we don't spend much time out in the winter. I am learning from this guy rain or shine he likes his outside time. The other day we took him outside to play and three of the girls went with him. He ran and chased them and laughed and screamed and did what boys do best. Well that night at dinner we all were surprised because he was so quiet and well behaved, we thought could it possibly be the outside time. The next day we did the same thing and guess what we had an enjoyable child again. Now we have snow on the ground and I am just going to have to bite the bullet and bundle him up for his daily outside play. This is from a mother who is still learning about boys after 6 girls, and in a few months, we'll have another little guy. I am sure my life will change again, but thankful that the Lord has chosen me for this path.
