      Guatemala Photo Of The Day – Proud To Call Him My Son

      When I was a kid, I dreamed of building houses.  I built small houses out of Lego blocks.  I built small “dog houses” out of scrap wood.  I built houses out of Lincoln Logs.  And I built houses out of cushions and blankets in our family’s living room.  When I was Isaac’s age, I would have jumped at the opportunity to build houses in Guatemala.

      I’m so thankful Isaac has had this experience.

      I think he learned a lot as we put up the walls on Betty’s home.  His hammering skills improved, and his confidence in overall construction grew as well.

      Hannah used to say, “Isaac is a quiet boy.”  He may be quiet, but his actions speak loudly.

      I’m so proud to call him my son.
