The Happy Ending Walk

I couldn't leave it there. It was just so pitiful.

A photo of my little boy crying for his brothers. Certainly he's not still strapped in that seat crying. Is he?

He was a bit sad in the morning when we returned from dropping off Jack and Max. Our house was unusually quiet with them gone. It must have felt so strange to him.

It felt strange to me.

But, after we ate lunch together, his Dad came to his rescue.

Lincoln, do you want to take a walk with me?

And, with that, his little face lit up, and he ran into the playroom and returned with everything he needed.

His backpack.
And, his "lunchbox". (Also known as his Adventure Bible cover.)

We are going on a school walk, Mom. Bye.


A school walk.

He was just like his brothers.

And, all was well in his little heart, again.


  1. He looks much happier now!

    That's the exact style Bible cover my daughter has. It's really nice...except for that little velcro pouch on the front. The temptation to open it 14 times during every sermon is almost too much. Ha!

  2. I've read your blog often but never commented. I come for the recipes but love hearing and seeing your sweet family.
    I just have to say yesterday's post had me both smiling and crying. Smiling because I can't imagine how proud you are that your boys are so close and crying because, well, it was heartbreaking to see him so sad.
    I don't have any children yet but I can only hope they love each other as much as your boys do.

  3. I love your family! What an awesome Daddy they have and how fabulous that a walk with Daddy could make it all better. :-)

  4. Oh, good. I feel better now. I nearly tracked you down to see if he was okay. :-) That was indeed pitiful. Poor little sweet thing. I hope your fellas are having a good time at school so far.
