Colson, the boy, the hero.

Something's happened to my sweet child. I think it's called boyhood. Take a look at this face, this is what I mean:
He found this bow in the grass a couple days back. Minus a string and an arrow, this bow is the real deal. And by the looks of things this business is very serious. Look at him pretending to pull the string back. Little does he know the bow is facing the wrong direction. But what's that matter when you have an imagination like this one has.
Yes, the era of boy is upon us, full force. Today he told me that an excavator wanted to scoop Lewis right out of the stroller. What a sigh of relief I had when he told me that he would have to crush that scooping monster instead of losing Lewis to it. Colson, the hero. He brings us such joy and adventure.

On my desk at work, I have the photo from my wedding day of all of the soccer girls (including you and baby-face Colson). It's amazing how much he has grown up, and how funny he is. It is interesting to me that he finds random broken toys in your backyard. Sounds similar to my puppy who eats rocks all day because apparently her millions of chew toys are not good enough...not that I'm comparing your child to a dog...

Sounds like he has a great imagination! I love his faces...he seems pretty intense these days. :)

My Carson is the same way, always looking for a weapon. It was so fun to see the pictures of Mitch's wedding! When we were little, we thought we would marry eachother. Ha, ha.

Wow! He is huge. I guess that is what happens when you haven't seen a little boy in a long time.

I am praying for you and your family. Hope all is going well!
