Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Boys

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.

Oh, is he ever cute!

Our boys have been rambunctious lately and come to think of it, we haven't spent much time outside either. It's tough right now because it's so very cold this week here in PA, and we have a few kids with colds. I may have to wait a few days yet so no one gets pneumonia.

Boys are so different...in a good way! My girls are content to stay in their rooms after school and read and draw, but not my boys. They are running around the house being loud! But I wouldn't trade it for anything!

That is such an adorable picture of Levi. J.C. and Justin are the same way, when they don't have outdoor time they are UNBEARABLE!!!

Love ya'll!

I feel like I, too, am still learning the difference between girls and boys. It's been quite an adjustment for Phil and me. I can only imagine the adjusting going on in your home after having just girls for so many years! Blessings to you and your family, Susan!
