My handsome boy...

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I took my big boy outside for a photo shoot.  He is growing up to be such a delightful & helpful boy.  He is very responsible & very trustworthy.  He has such a heart for the Lord.
I am so thankful for the gift of Zai!

This photo reminds me of something that happened recently:
Zai had a friend over and the boys had asked me if they could go for a walk in the paddock.  With permission they headed off.  Bessy (who generally stays as near to the house as she can) noticed these two entering her abode.  Now Bessy was a poddy calf, so she is very, very affectionate.  The boys were half way through the paddock when she decided to race after them for a pat.  Now a half grown calf running at you is a little scary - especially since she doesn't always completely stop before she gets to you -  the boys heard the hoof beats & decided to run away from her - Bessy thought she'd enjoy this game & ran a little faster - before you knew it we had two eight year olds sprinting across the paddock followed closely by a cow who was enjoying this for all it's worth. They scrambled up the gate as fast as humanly possible & there I saw them - two boys sitting atop the gate as a puzzled calf walked around underneath them waiting for them to play the game again!

 I feel so blessed to have this precious boy as my son! 

Use today to count your blessings!

That is one lovely and handsome chap you have there, Renata!
Aren't boys so precious......oh, girls too, but we have been blessed with 2 boys - one is 7, the other is 17, and they are simply adorable.
These photos are lovely. And - I have to say it again - he is mighty handsome.
Love, Anne x
