Growing and Going!

My sweet Sammy turned 5 in early July, during my blog rest.  Here are some wonderful photos of him since then.

Earlier this year we were offered a new-to-us bike without training wheels and I passed.  Guess I was having a brain freeze!  When he gets going strong on this one (which won’t be long), we’ll need another!

I was thinking about Sammy’s birthday party this year and how he melted since the family had come over after lunch on the following Sunday.  And how I wanted his 5th birthday to be perfect…and it wasn’t!  Then I remembered the melt-down I had at my 5 year old party when I couldn’t break the pinata open and my Mom had to take me inside the house for a talk!  So before Sammy’s BD, I had told Tony I thought a perfect gift from him would be a fishing pole and to take him on his first bank fish trip.  They ended up at a friends pond with Uncle Johnny – it couldn’t have been more perfect!  And he caught 5 fish!!  It was a great time for them all.

 At times I’ve referred to him as my refining fire!  I’m so grateful for the extra time with him as we homeschool so that I can know him better.  He is a delightful child and I thank the Lord for the blessing to be his Momma!
