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.

4th of July

This year, we had planned to lay low and spend the 4th of July at home.  Our plans changed, though, when we got a very welcomed invitation to spend the day with my parents!

The kids had fun playing in the pool and pretending my mom was the monster and spraying her with the water.  She was such a good sport playing with them out in the hot sun.  Her clothes were drenched.
We ate some delicious steaks and my mom made her very yummy brownies for dessert.  Yeah for no diet!
We set off a few fireworks, but it wasn't dark enough to get the full effect.  Still, the kids really liked throwing those pop-its on the ground, the fountain, and all the sparklers.
It was a fun day for all!


  1. Woo hoo! Looks like lots of fun! Your mom is awesome. I can just see her sopping wet!

  2. Happy 4th! A wonderful time!
