Today we had our Halloween playgroup at Becky's...it was awesome!! THANKS BECKY!! She gave out lunch, gift bags and had a lady from Precious Prints come over and take foot and hand prints of our children on different pottery pieces. Thinking of their little prints, and how fast they grow, I was reminded of a poem I heard in a parenting class Kyle and I took two years ago...
A Child is for Molding
I took a piece of plastic clay,
And idly fashioned it one day,
And as my fingers pressed it still,
It bent and yielded to my will.
I came again when days were past,
The bit of clay was hard at last.
The form I gave it still it bore,
But I could change that form no more.
I took a piece of living clay,
And gently formed it day by day,
A young child's soft and yielded heart.
And molded it with power and art.
I came again when years were gone:
He was a man I looked upon.
The early imprint still he bore,
But I could change him then no more.
"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it" Proverbs 22:6
Erin's foot prints...
When Brooke saw Kyle this morning, she said "You're scaring me dad" and Erin said, "Dad, I like your suit!"...see below. We went up to Kyle's office to trick or treat and eat pizza...we've done that the last three years and always have so much fun :)
