Why God Made Little Boys

God made a world out of his dreams,
Of magic mountains, oceans and streams,
Prairies and plains and wooded land.
Then paused and thought, "I need someone to stand,
On top of the mountains, to conquer the seas,
Explore the plains and climb the trees.
Someone to start out small and grow,
Sturdy and strong like a tree" and so
He created boys, full of spirit and fun
To explore and conquer, to romp and run
With dirty faces, and banged up chins
With courageous hearts and boyish grins.
And when He had completed the task He'd begun,
He surely said, "That's a job well done."

We spent the whole day outside yesterday.  The boys loved exploring the yard and creek and they found an old pile of bricks at the back of the yard and told me they were building a castle for a princess.  The stuck together the whole time. This is exactly why we moved here.  I want my boys to grow up climbing trees and exploring nature and coming inside when the sun goes down with dirty faces and filthy clothes and stories of adventure.  

There is a big open field next to our house and they bravely went off together, holding hands the entire way to the other side of the field.

Shep turned around about every 10 feet to make sure we were still there.  Meanwhile Joey and I were just crying, watching them. There is no better friend than a brother!
