This past week Cody had his investiture into scouts.
Now, anyone who knows Cody well will see something unusual about the photo above. Yes, he is wearing a collared shirt. This boy hates collared shirts. Ever since he was young he would just cry. I have a picture from when he was 2 on Easter Sunday, he was in tears because he had to wear a little suit. For nearly 6 years he has rarely worn a shirt with a collar. We really had to make a fuss over this shirt. When he first saw it, he cried! Crazy kid. Anyway, he got over it and dressed himself for scouts this past week and I was very proud of him.
Please pass on your parenting lectures, I've learned to pick my battles with my kids, and forcing them to wear something they don't like isn't a battle I feel is important. Teaching them to love others as Christ loves us, that's my priority.
