Mystery Kid

Not quite sure who this shaggy, tow-headed teenager is.

But I love him.

At church the other day, he came and grabbed my 14 year old and said, "Come with me."

(Those have to be a mom's most favorite words when her son is trying to find his place.)

Then, last night at the High School's open house, this same mystery kid "punched" my son on the shoulder greeted him with a "hey" and big, brace filled smile.

I don't know that boy. S doesn't even know his name. But I love him already.

So, who ever he is (and I hope we find out soon), thanks for being so friendly!

My oldest had a "Mystery Kid" his first year at scout camp, good thing too, I had packed him so many munchies and treats that he couldn't heft his own pack.

Mystery kid has become over the past six years a treasured family friend.

My son has recently made friends with a "Mystery Kid" also. He has been a blessing.

I'm glad your son and this mystery kid have found each other. I bet they will be partners in crime for the rest of their lives!

Yay for S! I need one of those for my Emie! It's a hard time to move...

I am so thankful the Lord has placed this young man in your S's path! God is so good to us, especially in those least expected times, places and ways!

Many hugs...........

Moving as a kid is hard. It's nice when someone goes out of his way to make it just that much easier.

I love him too. Who knew that angels sometimes wear braces.
