Catch Him While You Can!

We as mothers say this phrase so much "where did the time go?", but it is so true, time flies by.

Here is my oldest son


Here is what he does best...get ready to go somewhere!

He has some big moments this week. We had some out of town family come in and do some camping. Both my boys got in on that action and loved it! It was a camping trip with one uncle and six boys, filled with fishing, camping, campfire cooking - the whole roughing it scenario. (So not me by the way)! A big THANK YOU goes out to Uncle W!! You are the MAN! These are the moments that make forever memories and we appreciate him taking the time with the boys and just having fun.
Then on Saturday this young man will experience his first prom. Don't worry, lots of pictures will come up here on the blog!!!

Through these big moments, it is so easy to lament on how fast he has grown up and thought like things I wish I had done different, where did my little boy go, etc. But in every situation of life there is the choice to look back or move forward. Looking back creates good memories, but does nothing to enhance the future, which is now and in FRONT of us! So, in our life we are trying to embrace these moments, making the most of them and keep on keeping on!

Oh, one more thing...thank you for letting me share with you and bombard you with pictures.

"Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13,14

  1. I'm not a big roughin' it type of girl but my husband went camping often as a child. He loves it. I hope to learn to love it.

    That is so sweet of your son's uncle to take all the boys on such a wonderful adventure. Your son looks so sweet and happy!

    Blessings,
