Because things have been so crazy around here lately (with us not knowing when we were going to move), we decided to do a low-key birthday party for Josiah with just a couple of his friends. He loves all things "Duck Dynasty", so many of his gifts were DD stuff. Michael found an Army uniform for him at a PX and made sure his name tape was on it. Josiah was thrilled!
Thank goodness this small town boy is about to move into the country! Does he look ready for it or what? Yesterday we accepted an offer on our house and we are moving! We are putting an offer in on a little 3 acre homestead and hope it gets accepted. By the end of next month, we may finally be living our family dream! Please pray for us that all will go smoothly.
We got Josiah a rock tumbler. He really enjoyed this.
One of his friends got him this Harley D. jacket. Very nice!
We got Josiah these DD plates. I love Hailey hiding behind the tea glass, LOL.
Where is he?
Jacob was a first timer and beat everybody. So proud of him!
Hailey was right in there with the boys, having a ball.
I can't believe you are already 10 years old! Times flies when you're busy and having fun. We are excited to see you taking on the responsibility of caring for your very own dog. We look forward to watching you increase that responsibility when we move to our homestead where you will have even more animals to take care of. Even though we butt heads sometimes, we know how to laugh together and get through those rough patches as your dad and I strive to teach you the ways of the Lord. Your heart for Him continues to grow. Your understanding of His paths continue to widen. It is an exciting thing to watch as a parent and I pray you will always continue on that path, never looking to the right or the left, but keeping your eyes on Jesus, knowing you will be blessed indeed if you put Him first in your life. This will be a year of huge changes for you - some will be wonderful, some will be hard. Of this I'm sure - we will get through it together and come out even stronger as a family unit.
We love you beyond words, dear son,
Your Loving Mama
