This post is as much a reminder to me, as well as everyone else, that the outcomes of the small battles aren’t necessarily how the war will end.
In this case, I will always remember this email sent to us from a parent yesterday out of the blue regarding Carter. Carter and the boys can be a handful most days but in the end all that matters is how they end up as adults.
Needless to say I am very proud of all my boys!
I just had to write you to tell you how kind and friendly Carter was to Ross today at Sports Camp.
Ross had an appointment this morning so I didn’t bring him to camp until about 1:30. We walked into the Nepean Highschool big gym and Ross was a little nervous because he was late and everyone was already there sitting around a circle making flags for forts they had built. And Sophia the counsellor said “Hi Ross!” And then Carter turned around and smiled so nicely and said “Hi Ross! Come sit here – do you want to join our fort?”
He was so sweet. What a kind child Carter is – and so smart to know just what to say to make another child feel welcome and comfortable.
I was so happy to see Ross going off to the fort with Carter because of how Carter treated him and what he said to him. It was precious. You have a lovely boy!
