wordless wednesday

the littles…

are not so little anymore.

family day

Today we celebrate five amazing years with this little guy.
I love the unique person God made in him.
Noah’s truly a gift from God and we couldn’t be more proud that he’s ours.

happy birthday little man!

Noah is a big 7 year old now.  Man, how time flies.

We went to an amusement park for the day and he just made the height requirements
to ride some of the bigger rides.  He and Caroline had a blast riding the big kid rides
themselves.  Happy birthday little man.  We think you’re a pretty amazing little guy
and we’re so blessed you’re our son, brother and friend.


Family is where life begins and love never ends.

noah the swimmer


Noah’s had a big and exciting week.  He spent the week at Ms. Sara’s swim camp
and finally learned to swim!  (Ms. Sara said it was just his year, everything clicked!)


We’re all so proud of him and I know he’s just as proud of himself!

Noah, Katherine and I travelled last week for Caroline to attend gymnastics camp
at The University of Georgia.  While she spent long hours at the gym, we
had our own adventures.  (These Georgia Bulldogs are everywhere!)


We had fun at the pool.
(Let me just say, the pool was much appreciated as Georgia is hot and humid.)


We visited a animal habitat just minutes from the University that was shady, quiet and
free!  We were able to observe a bald eagle and some black bears up close.


We found the most amazing public park I’ve ever seen.
(And believe me, I’ve seen my fair share of parks over the years.)
Noah and Katherine has a blast make believing all kinds of fun kid things.
The three of us had a great time in Athens, Georgia without hardly spending any money.

reading buddies


Every evening I send the kids to their beds to read for 30 minutes before bedtime.
Tonight I walked into Noah’s room to find these two reading their Bibles together.
It makes this homeschool mama so happy to watch their love for reading and learning.

photo friday


I took this picture of Noah and Caroline last week.
I love how it captures who they are; full of life, energy and always on the go!
