That boy…the one in the orange kayak. He’s something special. His bigger brother usually gets to experience things first…like staying up late, or a new sport, or sitting in the front seat. Mcree is the middle child. I’ve never been one, so I don’t know how it feels. But I can imagine from living with my younger sister and married to a second born, that life isn’t always fair. I never want Mcree to think he isn’t special because of the order he was born. I want him to stand strong and know that God created him for great things and his talents are his own, not because he watched a brother and took second place. This kid is amazing in the water. Surfing, swimming, kayaking…he’s got these all down. He is strong, and brave, and is up for trying anything new. HE IS AN ADVENTURER!
He was pretty happy to get a surprise delivered to our door. A Mcree size orange kayak. He sat in his kayak on the back porch for 2 days straight kayaking in the air. It was sweet and sad to watch all at the same time. So when the weather cleared, we headed to Wesley Garden Retreat on the Moon River to let them frolic in the open water. We even brought a friend…because life if more fun with someone to experience it with!
