Here is our resident drummer. Caleb taking some instruction from Matt last night. Matt had some new music and he took some time and worked with Caleb. Caleb has a natural rhythm and he picks up on beats after only listening to a song one time. They had a great time. The other kids did it too, but didn't have the same beat going on.
A little twister goes a long way...the game came out in 1966, but it still holds true today. The kids loved it, but most of them couldn't reach the other side. Judah was so funny...dancing around the board...and William being so confused about the right and left sides.
Here is William trying so hard to stretch across. He did so good for the first time...he is so insistent to take time and work hard.. persistent he is!
We have some incredibly busy weeks coming up, so we took some time out to have a family night. We ate dinner, played twister, ate cookies made that afternoon by the kids, and listened to some worship music...a great night. By the end, Matt and I were dozing on the couch. What a great family!

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
