Busy Summer!

How does time go so quickly?!

This summer has been a great one!  Asher is sleeping longer and more consistently, Damek has started reading like a pro, Caedmon is doing more and more things for himself.  Part of the joy of parenting is watching your children grow and develop. The privilege of getting to know them is quite an honor.

Over the last two weeks we've celebrated Damek's 7th birthday

and cheered him on through the first week of 1st grade.

Damek decided that he wanted to spend some of his birthday money to buy a Bible (a REAL Bible, Mom, not a kid's Bible!)  He insisted it had to have a bookmark and be only so big.  In other words, he wanted one just like Daddy's.  So, we took a trip to the local Christian bookstore.  There is a dizzying array of Bibles out there!  It took quite a while but he finally found just the one he was looking for.  It was even red (his favorite color).  

Since he bought it two weeks ago, he has read through the first four chapters of Genesis and the first chapter of John.  He follows us through the house, asking whoever is around if they would like to hear the Bible.  How do you say no to that?  It is awesome how excited he is to read it.  I truly love this boy God has blessed us to be parents of.


  1. WOW!
    my son is more "reluctant" to even do prayers at night. of course, pile on the guilt! i wish we were more connected to an SDA community. why again am i stuck up here in the boonies? sigh :(

    1. Oh, Ericka, 80% of the time my kids don't want to pray, 10% of the time they don't want to sit still while I pray, you take what you can get. :-) Damek is a leader, he loves the thought of standing up front with a microphone, the Bible goes with that in his mind.
