Oh My...Garet turns 11!

It is so hard for me to believe that this child of mine has turned 11! He is definitely growing up and the time is flying by! I need to stop and remind myself often to ENJOY this time in our life because it will be gone before I know it!
Here are just a few scarey things about having an 11 year old...
-The "attitude" is coming on! I dread this!
- I realized the other day that his legs are extremely HAIRY!
PLEASE NO!
- I can wear his shoes now and they are almost to big for me!
Sat. we celebrated Garet's birthday! We took a trip to CS and visited a really cool park, had a picnic and went to Amadson's Logoon for the day! It was HOT, but the water felt great! The boys had a great time and came home pooped!

The birthday boy informed me that he was over half way to twenty! WOW! You just don't remind a mother of that! Am I old enough to have a son this age? I must have had him when I was 10!








Saundra was the photographer here. She refused to have her pic taken! Some of you know how hard headed she can be! XOXO! Thanks for helping me with the boys! I enjoyed your
company!
Children are a gift for the Lord, they are a reward from him.
Psalms 127:4


Our faithfulness, or lack of it, will have an overwhelming impact on the heritage of our children.
Beth Moore


I'm so grateful for this special gift of mine... Garet Rose!
