These were Jacob's first words after he got the video text of Lynnsie (finally!) walking earlier today. Yes, she is will be 18 months old on Saturday and she is just now walking :) He said she couldn't go hunting until she learned to walk. I'm not sure why those words were a sweet surprise to me, but they were.
Jacob talks non-stop about taking his little girls hunting. He's already taken Anna Beth pig and deer hunting quite a bit...most of the time at AB's request!! It is a very precious, sight, though - to see a daddy bundle his little girl up in camouflage - with a pink hat and boots - and get everything ready for a hunt that probably isn't going to be productive (due to the age and energy level of his hunting partnet).
But that's what he does, because that is the wonderful kind of daddy that he is. He lets his little girls into his world - the world that he likes to go to when he needs to relax and do "man stuff". And, like I said before, I don't know why those words were a sweet surprise, but I really don't know of anything that he could have said that would've been any sweeter.
