As we walk through this adventure called life, we remind ourselves that we are all precious children of our Father-- those of us who have walked a little further down the road striving to guide those who have been entrusted to our care for a time. Here is our journey down this path.

2 rulers, some paper plates, tape, staples....
2 big clips, 2 straws, more tape, and paper! I was pretty impressed!
And--earlier today, we opened 2 'Young Savers' accounts with their earnings.
Several men told them how they did (or didn't) do the same when they were young and encouraged their responsibility...it was a great experience. And they were quite proud!

but tonight, he went to go get ready for bed and then, walked back in the living room and very calmly stated, "I just pulled my tooth." He looked a little more excited than he sounded!

One, I love, because she says it so sweetly...and with such a cute smile....
"I do it." While looking at a book to turn a page, while closing a door, getting dressed, going up or down stairs, or basically anything else...you get the picture.
The other, not so much..."Mine!"
I guess it should reassure me that she is a normally developing, typical 2 year old, but it is difficult to hear that from such a sweet child who has only been here such a short time....how quickly she learns! :(

"Yes--I'll be right back, I have to go listen to a text message."
Don't grow up too fast, my sweet girl!

The boys designed the flyer themselves (the file was named 'bissness'!), cut them apart, and put them on all of the mailboxes on our street--and a few other houses of friends close by.
It only took a day to get their first call and this last week, they were busy with 5 houses!!

The pregame show was, of course, very patriotic. They had the biggest American Flag we had ever seen! I got teary eyed as I watched all of this holding Cynthia on my lap...what a perfect way to spend her first 4th...baseball, fireworks...Jeff said all we needed was apple pie!
And from our newest American Citizen........Happy 4th of July!
