Most people don't get to see this face too often. I get to see that precious smile a lot, but he hates to have his picture taken, so genuine smiles are rarely captured.

But I just have to say....I love being his mom. He's at school right now and I miss him. He's an amazing guy and I have seen the Lord work in his life a ton already at the age of 7.

In His Element

 He lives and breathes baseball right now. We are all enjoying watching him play!
 I'm so thankful he has a sport that he's passionate about and that he can excel in.

Easter at Church

Now that I'm working at church, Easter has been a busy, busy time. Our students made 120 sets of Resurrection Eggs.

Then we had a Palm Sunday re-enactment. Does that "Jesus" look familiar?
Ryan's been getting roped into all sorts of things since I started this new job.

Celebrating William's 2nd Birthday

 This was the 3rd Thomas the Tank Engine birthday we've had in our house. The 1st for Will, but a certain older brother had a Thomas party when he was 2 and when he was 4.
 Will loved his new truck that he got from Daddy and Mommy.
 We decided to let him keep it in the basement until the weather warms up. Big mistake. We now have two significant holes in the dry wall.
 Sissy is always there to help him open his presents.
 One of the sweetest moments of the day was when Christian gave Will his old Handy Manny Tool Bench. We've had it in the basement for a few years, so it was new to Will. Christian felt like he was really giving him a real present and Will loved it!
 I'm so glad Will was thrilled with it (and so was Sissy). It made Christian's day.
 Will couldn't stop jumping up and down when we hung up some Thomas decorations in the dining room. As soon as Daddy got home from work Will immediately showed him.
 He was so excited about his birthday!
 Cake time.
 This little guy knew just what to do when someone sits a cake in front of you!
 None of us encouraged him to do this. He just took a huge bite. It was hilarious.
 When you're this cute, you can pretty much get away with whatever you want.
 Happy Birthday precious boy!
Just one more picture of that sweet face!

Good Morning!!!

It's Monday!
A new week!

Here's some good advice:

"God is at work telling a story of restoration and redemption through your family. Never buy into the myth that you need to become the "right" kind of parent before God can use you in your children's lives. Instead, learn to cooperate with whatever God desires to do in your heart today so your children will have a front row seat to the grace and goodness of God." - Reggie Joiner
