Entering Manhood

Brad asked for a knife for his seventh birthday. I was a little nervous, but hubby calmed me. He’ll teach him how to use it and how to care for it.

Brad was so thrilled to choose his own Swiss Army knife.

He immediately began to whittle.

He presented me with a beautiful ‘bald” stick for Mother’s Day.

I remember rocking him in the glider next to his crib, watching his first smiles like it was yesterday. What a blessing Brad has been to our family.
