A Little Release

One morning last week, I think Brighton had had enough of Julia and me. After we finished up school, we began our ritual of reading. Sometimes he joins us, sometimes he doesn't and that's fine. He announced he was going to ride his bike so Julia and I pulled chairs in front of the dining room window. This way we could keep a watch on our little daredevil. By the time we got settled in our chairs with all of our books, this is what we saw. A little testosterone release......



He knew where his Daddy's big shovel was so he dragged it over and began "helping" the neighbor's landscape guys. They all worked in silence and with great patience.


Here, he was thinking hard about the wheelbarrow. It was full, making it too heavy to bring over so he kept shoveling.
We shared a chuckle as I snapped a few pictures, we read every book without interruption and Brighton stood a little taller as he walked back in the house.

That's our boy! Is he developing a servant's heart already? Helping his neighbor? What I can't believe is that they all worked in silence when "B" was in the group! Really cute pix. Love, Mom

I love that those guys just let B join right in and do his thing near them. So precious!
