Time with my Son

Mondays are always so busy for us. Just catching up from the weekend, school and Bible study in the evening. Last night my dd had softball practice so my hubby took her and my ds went to Bible study with me.
I was thinking as we were riding down the road how special these times are. I don't get to spend much time with just him. So, as we are riding down the road we began to have a little driving lesson. In 3 months the child will be 15....help me! I began to go over what the yellow line, white line, ect. mean and he is hanging on every word. After about 20 minutes, he says,"Mom thanks for taking the time to tell me this stuff." Talk about a puffed up heart. It doesn't take much for this Mamma to be so proud. He is such a sweet little man ( really big....I have to look up at him now) and so different when he is not around his sister....she loves to drive him crazy sometimes. :)
My hubby and dd had a great time together also. She went to practice and then to the "gas station store" where they paid way to much for a pack of gum and a slim jim.....but had a great time together.
My hubby and I talk about how we are going to miss these moments.... I am just so thankful to God that he has made us aware of the special times so that we will be able to cherish them more.
Have a wonderful Tuesday friends :)

Special times with our children is great! I truly enjoy it as well. I took dd mall shopping the other day and actually had a good time even though I hate the mall. LOL!

That is really a precious moment! It really is awesome to spend time with each one alone...they truly are different! ;) Alex is very sensitive and sweet...but sure knows how to pester Emily and be obnoxious at times :)

I cherish them so much too! Great moment...and hard to believe you'll have one driving soon!
