Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

This past Saturday was our first swim lesson day!  I love swimming!  Cadence went into her own preschool class.  She said she liked it, but got scared when they were doing back floats.  That is a scary feeling, at first.  
Finn, Aria, Brad and I went to the parent/tot class.  Finn seemed so much bigger than the other kids.  He did great!  He loved throwing the toy and then "swimming" to it.  Aria wasn't as fond of the lesson, but she did pretty well.

Bird watch check in.  It is amazing the similarities you can find between chicks and human babies.  I can hear these little chicks chirping frequently throughout the day.  They are very loud, just like human babies.  You wouldn't think so much sound could come out of such little creatures.  Also, the poor mama bird seems so busy.  Flying back and forth to take care of them and tend to their needs every time they chirp.  I've only had one newborn to deal with at a time.  She has FOUR to deal with at once.  Obviously, there are many things that make human babies more difficult than chicks (i.e. the fall and all that), but it's fun to draw some parallels.
Look at how big these hungry little birds mouths are!  Amazing!  Feed us!


  1. The swimming looks like fun!

  2. You are having too much fun! I love the play in the park (aside from Mrs. Grumpypants) and now swimming?! It's great to hear (and see) all that you're up to.

  3. What a tremendous time it was! So very wonderful and exciting!
