Riding into Spring

Because I slack at posting these days....here is a fun recap of life lately at our house. 


This guy likes to ride and he rides fast! This little John Deere tricycle has been with Randall's dad for some years and he passed it on to Henry. Henry finally got the pedaling down and loves it! 


Henry takes after Randall and his dad by doing stuff like this....lining up all his riding toys and making a "parking lot" out of them. Henry asked me to take his photo with his parking lot. Such a little Lee!


This tractor is a favorite riding toy that came from Papa also. Henry took the bunny ears off our concrete Razorback and acted like the Easter Bunny. His little laugh is contagious! 


We are so excited for Easter. Spring is upon us and we are ready to bask in all it's fun! 


Spring means swim lessons with Mrs. Kate again this year. Bless her heart for teaching this boy to swim again. Randall and I don't feel she is paid near enough for this chore! Ha. He is a stubborn little "bossy Fred". 


Spring means this guy is going to play tball for the first time. We are a little excited and nervous to see how this transpires. Our neighbor and her son who is in the 7th grade and plays on a traveling team came to coach him some for us. He gave him his old baseball bag and some baseball pants. Henry is soooo excited! 


Spring means Daddy is here, there and everywhere and Mama has to call in the help! Henry was so excited to have his school teacher, Ms. Chloe babysit him one night while I had other duties. He adores her and I adored her for bathing him and getting him ready for bed. Love having others love my child. 


Spring means fun at school and giving. We were so proud to support St.Jude and have a sweet friend donate Henry's fundraising goal. Teaching Henry to give is so important to us and can be challenging at times. We want him to be a giver and not a taker as he grows. Our church is in a campaign to raise money for land where we will build our new church. It is a great time to really teach him to give. I'm on the stewardship committee for this campaign so he sees me serving my time and hearing us discuss it at home a lot. We also have fun telling him about a family in our church who has recently moved to Kenya to serve at a seminary there. He now likes to take money to Sunday School to help them. Our adult Sunday School class actually purchased a tea farm for the seminary in Kenya to generate income. When we all give what we can, we can do great things! 


Spring means getting out Easter books and talking more about Jesus' death, burial and resurrection. I'm amazed at how much this boy knows about Jesus. It's easy to teach a child about the Lord. Requires little money, only time, faith and a love for Truth. I'm so glad my parents taught me so I can pass it along. 


And finally, spring means storms and this little guy curled up with me in my bed on those stormy nights our little daddy is away from home. Nothing quite like it!
