My Little Emma Jane

First off, my lack in posting is due to the fact that I am head of a girls camp that is in two weeks and am prepping for that...

Anyway, lately, I have just been enjoying watching Emma Jane. She is so tender. She loves to play mother or teacher or just try to help. She really does just soak up everything I say and just repeat it back to CJ. "CJ that makes Jesus so sad when you hit" or "CJ, do you know Jesus loves you?" She really is CJ's second mother. I saw this again yesterday while I was cutting CJ's hair. Hair cutting time is a very painful process. CJ is just screaming the whole time. You would think I was torturing him, so needless to say, I do not like this process. Anyway, the whole time, Emma Jane kept trying to comfort him. She would say "It is going to be okay" or "you can have icecream after", "that would make you happy, right?" or "you're okay." You could tell that it pained her to see him like that, and that she was trying so hard to make him feel better.

Kids sure are the epitome of Christ-like. They are so forgiving and so loving. Lately I have been feeling like I am the student, and they are teaching me.

Here's to you kid! Here's Emma Jane doing what she loves--exploring the outdoors!
