Farmboy came in yesterday morning and asked for my camera.
What the heck??
He had seen our grandson's meandering footprints leading from the house to the end of the driveway where he catches the bus for school every morning, and he had to take a picture.
That boy does NOT walk a straight line!

And really...would we have it any other way?
Actually, yes.
There are some (OK, most) mornings that all I could wish for would be a little boy who isn't arguing/talking back/sassing, etc.
This past 1 1/2 years has been a tough row to hoe.
We've done all we can, and soon he will be back at his mom's.
Meanwhile, we continue to pray, and thank GOD for the public school system!
Pin It!

Thanks for visiting my blog! It's nice to know I'm not the only one who makes my own laundry detergent. Most of my friends raise their eyebrows over that one.

I loved the footprints photograph. I have an 11 year old son who does the same thing. He meanders as he walks, I think it is because he is constantly distracted by something he thinks interesting as he goes - I just picture him strolling along until "Oh look, a squirrel!" "Look! Some deer."

Cyn...I love that photo. You should hold onto it, someday you might want to tell that boy this story! I know you pray for that little grandson and that means the whole world to his life...forever. I think it's so cool that God honors our prayers, even when we're not on earth to pray them any longer!
