My little buddy

As silly and wild as this boy can be, he also has the power to melt his mom's heart. Saturday night we were winding down and reading some books together. All of a sudden my sweet little boy started singing - usually he sings jibberish and is silly, but I soon realized he was singing "I am a Child of God" and he was doing so good! Then we sang it together and my heart was near to overflowing and of course, my eyes already were!
I will be eternally grateful for the opportunity to be this precious little boy's "momma". He is amazing and his spirit touches me with its strength and also its gentleness. He is growing so fast and will celebrate his 4th birthday on Saturday! Where has the time gone?
We are having a great summer so far even though we haven't done anything special. Its just nice to spend time together. I am so blessed!

some SWEET kids . . .

Yeah! School's out! I'm loving summer already!
I thought I'd share a few recent pics of my sweet kiddos! I love the one of Aubrei - she is such a beautiful young lady and we are privileged to be her family. The orange nail polish
is so her right now - its her favorite color - happy, just like her!
Ainsli and Brodyn posed for a few pictures, but only after
I bribed them with lollipops in their favorite colors :)
We are so blessed and I don't want to miss a single moment -
the kids are growing up so fast and time seems to be zooming right along. I have to keep reminding myself not to take anything for granted and enjoy all the little
things that are so "us" right now.
