July is turning out to be especially eventful, starting from day 1 with our baby Gwyneth being born.
I’ll spare you long stories, suffice it to say God has been good, sustaining our family and providing sufficient cushion for bumps along the road.
So hospital stays, getting rear ended, finding lots of mold in our place, (to name a few challenges) have not fallen on us without grace to know God is always in control.
In learning to be less controlling when you relinquish your plan to God, a new peace says that’s how it’s suppose to be. But sometimes it takes being pushed beyond our limits to concede this truth.
Which I suppose makes me okay, if not glad in hindsight, for seemingly unfortunate times.
We also have much to celebrate.
And that’s my little version of an update after a couple months of it being quiet around here.
We just got this Bible last week and it’s SO nice, it’s like a giant comic book fully in color. My boys love it!
I got our copy here but I’m sure you can buy it from other online stores too.
Some photos from Devin’s 8th Birthday back in December, the theme was Angry Birds.
We hosted a sleepover at our house with 2 of his buddies, along with his brothers of course. Then the next day they played outside for hours and hours until some more friends came over to celebrate with presents and an ice cream cake (Devin’s request). It was actually an ice cream sandwich cake and SUPER easy to make!
Devin amazes us all the time with his intelligence, quick thinking, love of learning, passion for trivia, incredible memory, artsy & creative side, plus so much more.
He’s also entering the tween stage (early?) in attitude, appreciates more daddy time, says “oh crap” on a regular basis (trying to work on that!), and spits whenever he’s outside just for the sake of looking like a little man, I think.
All in all he’s a mix of wonder and regular tween ‘tude!
We LOVE our big boy Devin and delight in his big personality in our family.
