Fun summer time

We had a great time heading to Burlington city park and spray ground. It was a great way to kick off the summer. 

Corbin's tooth and swim meet

This boy lost his second tooth today and had his first swim meet. What a day! He tried so hard!

I gave you life, but I cannot  live it for you. 
I can give you directions, but cannot lead you. 
I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe. 
I can teach you right from wrong, but I cannot always decide for you. 
I can buy you beautiful clothes, but I cannot make you beautiful inside. 
I can offer you advice, but I cannot accept it for you. 
I can give you love, but I cannot force it upon you. 
I can teach you to share, but I cannot make you unselfish. 
I can teach you respect, but I cannot force you to show honor. 
I can advise you about friends, but I cannot choose them for you. 
I can tell you about lofty goals, but I can't achieve them for you. 
I can teach you about kindness, but I cannot force you to be gracious. 
I can pray for you, but I cannot make you walk with God. 
I can tell you how to live, but I cannot give you eternal life. I can love you with unconditional love...and I will. 

Being a mother is a blessing but is also a challenge.
You will learn your strengths and face your greatest fears. So blessed to be a mother to these boys and our sweet baby girl coming in September.

First tooth

This sweet boy lost his first tooth at school today. We had no idea that it was ready but apparently so. He bit into his lunch at school and out it came. Children go up way too fast!!

Sweet brothers

The love that these two share warms my heart. So blessed by them on a daily basis. "You don't chose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them."
