Waiting to Grow

It's time for a new challenge over at the A.R.T. blog and the theme is "SCHOOL". Since my kids are all grown up and out of the house, and no grandchildren as yet, I wasn't sure I was going to join in on this challenge. HOWEVER.... while browsing the internet, I came across this adorable image of a little boy wanting to grow big muscles. Now, this may not be close enough to a school theme but my take is that he is learning about hopes and dreams and learning to be patient in the process.

This reminded me so much of my own son, who is in his last year of college with a major in exercise science. He too, has been learning about diet, nutrition and to count calories, while building the toned body that he would like to have (to be the image of someone who is successful in nutrition) so he can help others. He is in excellent health and very muscular, however he is not as BIG as he'd like to be. Sometimes I have to remind him that he looks great and is in very good physical health. He doesn't need to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger. So, that being said, here's my card for the A.R.T. challenge.

You must click on the image to see it larger to appreciate the adorable little boy in the image! And here is the inside.

I mentioned that I found the image online and it was on Pinterest. I don't know where it was originally pinned from because I don't know how to find the source but it is in my "Printables" on Pinterest if you're interested. Thanks so much for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit
