A Boy and His Dog

I was laughing as I watched Joshua on the floor with Mindy. He was playing with her as if he, himself, were a dog. He was on all fours, barking and bouncing around. I think she was really enjoying her friend!

Of course, as soon as I got the camera out - he stopped.
He said, "Mom! I'm 15."
Apparently that means I can't get video footage of him being "cute". *ahem!*

But he did let me snap these pictures. My 15-year-old little boy, and his dog:
He's taking driver's training now. He's becoming a giver. He's taking responsibility for schoolwork, and actually puts forth effort. (Not always in a stellar way, but he's improving!)
And as I watch my son playing with the dog, I almost don't even remember the struggles we had when he was a young boy. Almost.

So thankful for all God has brought us through. And His faithfulness which I know will continue throughout our lives.
