One step towards manhood....

Showing off his Level 3 swim tag!

One more step away from Mom and Dad...

One more untying of the apron string...

How does one survive the growing up of a child????


Today my oldest baby came home from Boy Scout Camp! He made it the whole week! He passed his swim test and achieved his swim merit badge! I cannot say thank you enough for all the dear wonderful bloggy sisters who were uplifting him and Steve in prayer this week!
Having very 1st Hobo Dinner- Thumbs UP!


Alot of lessons were learned by both son and parents! Steve and I realized that we have been spending alot of time making things comfortable for him and smoothing situations. Some of the guys told Steve that Jeremiah did a whole 180 after Steve had left! It made Steve feel kind of bad, but also made him realize what both of us have tended to do through out the years! But our son is stronger then he or we give him credit for! He was able to accomplish alot this week - #1 just being at camp for a whole week! Do you know I think he's grown taller!!!

We are praising God for his goodness tonight! I know that God has a plan for Jeremiah, so I continue to give him back! We don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future!
Learning CPR - Always a good thing!













Sleeping arrangements! His bed on left!

"I know that God has a plan for Jeremiah, so I continue to give him back! We don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future!"

Though it IS too often difficult to give our children back to the Lord...trusting Him FULLY with their future, praise the Lord, we can KNOW He DOES hold the future and it is good (Jeremiah 29:11)!!

Wow, they look like they had comfy beds - I'm sure mine were just a bit of foam on the floor when I camped as a kid!
