Where has the time gone?

Yesterday you went off with Pat and Amiah on a ski day. I remember your first time on the mountain. How can you be big enough to ski on your own?

You woke up in the middle of the night and your leg was hurting. I carried you to bed and I could hardly fit you in my arms. When did you get so tall?

You came to show me that you have another loose tooth. I remember when that tooth came in... it was when you started to suck your thumb. I remember it so clearly so how is that that tooth is ready to fall out?

You want to sit on my lap and snuggle. You take up my entire being. When did your legs get long enough to dangle over mine?

Where has the time gone my boy? You will be six in just a few weeks. I am not sure I am ready for six. At six you won't be a little boy anymore. I miss my little boy but the memories of your baby years, toddlerhood, and preschool years are etched in my memory forever. I am looking forward to seeing the boy and man that God has created you to be my son. Even though you are getting big you will always be my little boy. I love you buddy!

Awww Kristen, that was so sweet... Landon is such a great little boy and has a great mommy that is helping him become what God wants him to be. Happy Birthday Landon!!

I noticed this morning when he and 3 of the other boys took a spot in the back row during music. They looked so big and grown up. I felt a twinge realizing that he will be moving out of Promise Land next year... sigh. He is a wonderful young boy. You and Lance are raising him (and your girls) well as you rely on God's strength and wisdom. You are a precious family.

When I showed Ross Landon's picture he said since he was holding a pen that he must be writing a letter to him....thought that was cute & you'd like to hear that!

Take care - Stacey
