Lincoln in the LR


This picture sums up a lot about Lincoln without saying a word. Always wearing his helmet ready to get on another bike ride at a moments notice, always at the edge of every door and window, always looking out into the outdoors, waiting; sometimes patiently: asking every time to go up the hill in the landy. Always wild, ever sweet. SDG


A Child’s Imagination

This morning Lincoln and I have taken it very easy. With Frank Sinatra playing in the background, we made cakes (pretend, of course) for all of Lincoln’s cousins. But then he decided he needed to deliver them. First delivery was his cousin Jade. Lincoln went into his room to get dressed so we could “leave”.  After a couple of minutes he emerges in one very interesting outfit…sure to please Jade! Complete with a headlamp and snow boots we took off to deliver the cake. Here you go Jade…

Kite Day!

Lincoln thoroughly enjoyed this kite Uncle Danny brought out for all the kiddos after our bicycle ride. Too bad he lost it for them. Tip top of the tree not coming down today. So now Lincoln owes Danny a new kite. Looking for the next windy day…

Packing the Kit For Camping With Lincoln

Not quite as organized as minimalist backpacking. Not nearly as light on the back, either. But can’t wait to get started!

Running With Lincoln

Having a two year old is good exercise in and of itself.

Fires To Be Lit

Lincoln & I had a great hike out three weeks ago just before sunset. (And before the snow!) I can’t quite tell you which one of us craves the wild more, but I haven’t yet cried when it came time to go in. Yet.

I am humbled though when out in the General Revelation and give glory to God for revealing Himself to us in His creation for even my son to see at such a young age! I can only pray He chooses to reveal more of Himself to him as he grows.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:20
