Happy Birthday to Samuel
16 years today!
Sam is our first born son. We have two boys. The life of boys.
My mom comes from a family of all girls. She has two sisters. Then she had two girls of her own. Her sister had a girl.
Then came me. I had boys.
I will never forget when my mom said to me "Wow, Carla, boys sure are different."
No Barbies, no dresses, no hair to braid and curl. No make up, no nail polish, no big deal on what should I wear. In fact my youngest son would wear the same thing everyday, if I let him.
Oh, being a mom to boys, melts the heart just the same.
Trucks, sand box time, dinosaurs, army men, Lego's and action movies. Bike races, helping catch frogs, bugs and crayfish. Getting dirty and with out a care.
End of the day, having your boy wrap his arms around you and say, " I will protect you, Mom."
Looking back at 2008, Sam is in the fella in the red chair. The other cutie is his brother, Atticus.
This tree frog liked Sam.
Atticus trying to get the tree frog to like him. He wants him to stick to him.
Brother's and Best Friends Forever!
Why God Made Little Boys
God made the world out of his dreams,
Of wondrous 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 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, banged up chins,
With courageous hearts and boyish grins.
When He had completed the task
He had begun
He surely said, "That is a job well done."
