We had a fantastic summer! The boys are at such a great age...so very curious & so very funny. So much fun was had and so many memories made!
Just thought I would share some of them with you......
Our long daylight evenings filled with walks in our neighborhood and throwing rocks in the creek.
Backyard fun, critter hunting & picnics!

The car door closed and off he went.....backpack and all.
I have to admit that my heart was a bit heavy this morning with a bit of anxiety for Brax. I am sure all parents are feeling this for their kids this morning. My immediate worry is that, "What if kids don't accept him?"
It's hard enough being a kid but being a kid that's a bit different makes it even harder. I start to panic- What if kids make fun of his ankle braces??? What if he falls??? What if he can't carry his tray to the lunch table??? I talk myself out of not getting in my car to go and get him.
Worry is an awful thing that will tear you up inside. I have to calmly say to myself to TRUST because after all, the best way to worry about nothing is to entrust God with everything!
And I am sure there will be a day that one of my "worries" will take place. And that is what I ask of you to pray for me.....to have the knowledge and words to comfort my child so that he can rise above and always remember....
That he is special.
That he is strong.
That he is a miracle.
That he has purpose.
That he was created in God's image and that in itself is enough.
And that he forever remembers to remain confident in the special guy that God made him to be.
