A Boy And His Daddy’s Boot

A man passed away leaving his bride behind.  Somehow he’d amassed a rather large collection of work boots and cowboy boots still in their boxes with receipts!  Bart stopped over a few nights ago and took a look.  The gal said she’d take whatever for them and that they just needed to be sold.  Bart wound up with two pair cowboy boots and 3 pair work boots!  When he arrived home the smell of real leather filled the house.  It was like a really nice Christmas and everyone was excited.  Bart pulled each pair out of their packaging to show the boys and me.  Hank took a particular liking to a pair that Bart said, “If I only got these I would be happy.”

Hank and the Boot

Hank carried that boot all around the house yesterday.  In this picture he was just holding it while watching a show.  When I put Gideon down for a nap, Hank (who I thought was washing his hands) filled that boot with water in the bathroom sink!

Oh dear!

When I found him I just said, “Oh no!” several times.  Hank looked concerned too and said, “Don’t worry momma we can get another one, there’s two.”  🙂

Sweet little boy.

I explained that I hoped it wasn’t ruined and then we agreed we should pray.  I prayed that the boot would be ok and that Hank would remember not to put water in it.  Then Hank closed the prayer saying, “Amen.”

I just love Hank SO much!

Here are some more shoe pictures:

Dear Jesus, thank you for the abundant blessing on Bart.  I am amazed that someone nearby was selling new boots in Bart’s size for so cheap.  They are good shoes and should last Bart a really long time (provided they don’t go swimming anymore). 😉  Amen.
