Barefoot...really!!?

 
Honestly I think the entire lake heard me yell, "Christopher, you did it!" Some people have a natural gift of just kind of picking things up. Well, that would be our eldest son at this particular moment. Duncan suggested he give barefooting a try. He agreed calmly and took on the instructions and the wetsuit and well, the rest is in the spray! Second attempt and he was up. I don't think he truly knew he was even footing until we were screaming and he looked and hence the excited look!
 
Are these things important in life? No, really they are not what makes the life of a christian full. It is all in Jesus. But we celebrated Chris and the gifts God has given him. The time we spent together as a family boating and cottaging. We uncovered many truths while away together. We are creating memories and drawing closer as a family experiencing things I never thought we would. For that I am thankful.
As Heather just blogged about divine moments, I too agree. God has given us these days and we are to rejoice and be thankful!
I so loved watching him foot. He was in shock!  We giggled and had fun enjoying the moment!
