You would think by now I would be used to it....with three sons I've gone through it enough.  One minute they are little boys...full of fun and adventure, sniggering at some awful joke and their eyes dancing with mischievous thoughts.  And then, right before your eyes, they are men.  My youngest son goes back to college today--it's been great having him home this summer but I know he's ready to go back to his friends, his college life and finish up his last year of college.  Matthew--I love you, for the little boy that will always live in my heart and the fine young man you have become.  Have a great year!

Matthew and his sister Caitlin, 1st day of kindergarten and pre-school!

Why God Made Little Boys

God made a world out of His dreams,
of magic mountains, oceans and streams,
Prairies and plains and wooded land.
Then paused and thought
I need someone to stand, on top of the mountains,
to conquer the seas, explore the plains
and climb the trees.
Someone to start out small and grow,
sturdy and strong like a tree and so
He created boys, full of spirit and fun
To explore and conquer, to romp and run
With dirty faces, and banged up chins
With courageous hearts and boyish grins.
And when He had completed the task He'd begun,
He surely said, "That's a job well done."

Have a wonderful day--what memories do you cherish about the 'back to school' days??
