JAX...all-boy, and a little evangelist!

Emma and Jax have caught pet frogs, Toadie and Freckles.
Toadie goes everywhere with Jax in the backyard. The other day, they were playing with the frogs on the trampoline (poor Toadie and Freckles) and Rusty didn't see Toadie anymore. He asked Jax "where is your frog? Did he get away?"
Jax said "Oh no! He's here!" and pointed down his pants. Only boys will carry their pet frogs down their pants. (Well, and maybe Emma.)
But Jax really surprised us this past weekend! When Kathleen was here, Jax took her in my bedroom by themselves, and Jax asked Kathleen if she knew Jesus? This melted me, because Jax has actually been the designated pray-er for Kathleen all year, and it shows me how God is working on his own heart, truly burdened for her. What a sweetie!

Hey Jenn,
That is so funny about the frogs in his pants. It reminded me of my little brother as a child. He would collect these massive snails that were at our church and put them in his pockets. Then my Mom would check his pockets when she washed them and got a nice suprise ;)

Shouldn't he be names "Arliss" (the little boy from "Old Yeller.")?

Jax is so wonderful!! He has such a wonderful servant's heart and longs to be helpful. I think that if pirates had pastors he would rock at that!!

Jax may have been a big part of the softening of Kathleen's heart last weekend. She kept telling me how amazed she was that he would ask her that.
I can't wait to see what God has already planned for this special little pirate.
i love you jax!

This makes me laugh... not only because it is soo Jax.. but because on Sunday when I was there he was talking to me with his hands down his pants... Maybe Toadie was down there then too! =) haha! I love him!
