Manly Things

I am so proud of Austin! It has been so neat to see him grow and change. God has given us SUCH a gift in him! As he grows up, we are praying that he is not launched from our house as a passive man. We are seeking God for wisdom on how to teach him and instill in him how to be a BIBLICAL man….one who “rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously, and expects God for the greater reward…” We have many great men around us to help instill these values…incredible, godly grandfathers, coaches, pastors, and BEST of all, his Daddy!

Here is a picture of the two of them just spending time together, doing something manly…making our shutters for our house! 🙂

Yesterday Olivia was not feeling well, and Austin piped in in the back seat and said, “Olivia, I am sorry that you don’t feel good. I wish I could be sick instead of you.” Sweet him, what a precious heart. Thank you, Lord, for giving us the blessing of raising this sweet boy!
