As expected, Colin also showed some signs of 'growing pains' during the transition. He didn't act out at home as much as at school but his teachers were open with us and more than willing to work with him through this stage of his life. Gratefully, it seems we've made it through and he's back to the same old, happy-go-lucky kid he always was!
As he gets older, we can see more and more of his servant heart. He has been SO helpful with Salem. Sometimes too helpful - like the time I caught him trying to give Salem a bottle of water, which he had filled up all on his own! And last week, he asked to help me in the infant nursery at church. At first, he was busy exploring all of the new toys and eating his own snack but once the room got a little overwhelming towards the end of service, he stepped up and started helping his momma! It made my heart smile to see him caring for these little ones that he barely knew. He's going to be such a great big brother and such a good little helper.
