Luke on the other hand just wanted to throw the golf ball around!! We were having a lovely time until Luke tripped and banged his head on a rock! And what a bruise that made...not so fun! Although I will say a little bit of ice cream helped tremendously! I love when Jake works nearby...it's fun for the kids to see him at work and see the things he is building and creating. We just found out that their business will be putting in a new park RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET this summer....how wonderful is that? It really is beautiful timing with the contractors being here to work on the carriage house. Jake will be able to come home most days to oversee the work and see that all is well. We're anticipating an amazing park, I saw the plans and they are a-m-a-z-i-n-g! For those that live locally, it will be behind the library. I believe they hope to have it completed by this Fall, if the funding comes through! GOOD TIMES!
Dear God, Make me the kind of man my Daddy is.
Later that night, the Father prayed,
Dear God, Make me the kind of man my son wants me to be."
Anyway, earlier this year Tyler got to be a part of a little preschool program at a local high school. He LOVED it. I would drop him off and he would RUN to the door waving and saying goodbye to all of us. I wasn't sure how he would be at first, but as each Wed. and Friday rolled around, he became more and more comfortable. Each day I had the run-down of all he did that day and boy, was it exciting! The program was really neat, basically high school junior and seniors that were a part of the child development course got to have a preschool for 20 kids. My friend Adrienne sent her son there as well and he and Tyler are great buds! I basically cried when I saw this "graduation day" picture because I was fast-forwarding 14 years! They'll be taller then me and I'll be a pile of snot.....

"The more we get together, together, together,
the more we get together the happier we'll be.
Cause my friends are your friends
and your friends are my friends."
just a little ditty that popped in my head!

Enjoy it today.....
Let your kingdom come In my world and in my life
You give me the food I need To live through the day
And forgive me as I forgive The people that wronged me
Lead me far from temptation
Deliver me from the evil one
Not a note is out of tune Or out of place
I look at the meadow And stare at the flowers
Better dressed than any girl On her wedding day
So why do I worry?Why do I freak out?
God knows what I need
You know what I need
Your love is
Your love is
Your love is strong
Invade my heart Invade this broken town
The kingdom of the heavens Is buried treasure
Will you sell yourself To buy the one you've found?
Two things you told me
That you are strong
And You love me
Yes, You love me
Our God in heaven Hallowed be Thy name above all names
Your kingdom come Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us wicked sinners
Lead us far away from our vices
And deliver us from these prisons"

Tyler really is a sweet kid. I heard him this morning, "good morning Lukie, it's a beautiful day sweetheart, want to go downstairs with me?" I mean, who wouldn't want to wake up to a greeting like THAT??
Oh, Tyler, you are so loved! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!! I am so grateful to be your Mom, to have these years to enjoy and discover who you are. Thank you for giving me the grace I need as I learn all about this mothering thing!! I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK AGAIN!
"A young child is, indeed, a true scientist,
just one big question mark. What? Why? How?
I never cease to marvel at the recurring miracle of growth,
to be fascinated by the mystery and wonder of this brave enthusiasm."
