forrest is such a proud big brother to wyatt! he always wants to show his friends whatever wyatt has learned lately, he just adores him! the other night at dinner, we were talking about ethan leaving for college in the fall (UGH), and forrest said "i'm living at home when i go to college! wyatt will need me!" we were pretty proud to hear forrest say that, not that we want him to feel like he must do that, but because at 10, that's what he wants to do!
which reminds me that we must make decisions about wyatt's future. that's right, we don't have a will, and we've never chosen guardians for our kids, just in case. it's such a hard thing to do! some people are blessed to have family members who immediately "claim" the privilege of being their kid's guardians. others have close friends who would assume that role. of course, we hope that wyatt will be able to live somewhat independently, if that is his desire, but we have no idea what his future holds for sure. but i'm so thankful that we know WHO holds his future! much to think and pray about......
on a lighter not......wyatt chasing a ball under his music play table.....

the joy of success!!!!!
