I love my life. Even in the craziness of juggling work, kids, time together, the messes, and over committing to things we are passionate about…I find so many times throughout the day to pause and smile, remembering how thankful I am for these sweet moments.
What have we been up to lately:
Our new friends are starting an organic farm (that hopefully will one day sustain an orphanage). God put this dream on both of their hearts before they met each other and they are now working on living that out. The farm in in South Carolina, about 1 1/2 hours away, is where the boys and I hung out last week for a few days and probably a few days this week. There is a LOT to get ready and we have loved getting to serve them business wise and with our hands and feet. I can’t wait to see how God works on the farm and in this family.
We have been playing and exploring farm things a lot and after being on the farm. Gress now thinks his acorns, aka “eggs” are really going to hatch.
Mcree is getting faster and faster and is so close to walking. In the meantime, he loves anything he can roll and push around.
With the cooler weather, the 18 kids on the block are always out playing. When Gress sees them, he immediately runs down to catch up. He definitely takes the commandment love thy neighbor seriously.
We don’t need the radio because Gress makes up his own songs. You can often find him in his own world signing his made-up songs. When we go to the park and he is swinging, he usually can be heard (at the top of his lungs) singing, “MY GOD IS SO BIG, SO STRONG AND SO MIGHTY, THERE’S NOTHING MY GOD CAN’T DO FOR YOU.”
