R turns 15!


R is one of our only two boys, bless his soul!! I will say this, he will make a great husband one day as he has lived with all of these women! We celebrated R's birthday this month with his requested meal. . . Nana's homemade potato soup. One might say, what an unusual request, but this is not just your ordinary soup, it is divine!! I must say that Nana was quite honored with the request and even a little tearful as she mentioned it was her high during our high/low game at dinner.

For those of you that have never played this with your family. . we simply go around the table and list our highs and lows of the day, the kids just think it is a game. . no one actually wins or loses, but it is a great way to re-connect after a long day. My kids are faithful to bring up the game when we all sit down together.

R had a good time and we can't believe he is 15. Although, not quite ready to get behind a car, we did tell him he could begin to study for his learner's test, maybe down the road he can actually take it. R came to live with us at age 9 and has grown to a fine, young man. He loves his favorite sport, wrestling, and has just begun his first high school season.

Happy Birthday R!

I've been visiting your blog here and there, this is my first comment I think!

Just wanted to encourage you as you continue your mission with your amazing family! You are obviously faithful to what God has given you. And a new baby, to boot! Congratulations and many more blessings to your family.
