A Cutie, A Sunset, Sole Hope Shoes, and Some Art...

Quintin discovered an old tub of Duplos, and they have quickly become his favorite toy.

He also enjoys "setting the table"...

God painted a beautiful, fiery sky the other night:

We enjoyed a Sole Hope night at school. Altogether, 500 pairs of shoes were cut out to protect the feet of Ugandan children from jiggers. 

Silas, Jalen, and Jordan enjoyed an afternoon of painting at Miss Karen's house. She is such a good friend and helper to my boys.

Recent Happenings...

I discovered this little gem. Unfortunately, this must be exactly where my children learned theirs:

Mr. Q has decided he LOVES to be outside.

He even learned how to open the patio door!

Everyone loves Malia...she's such an awesome kid! She recently received this note from one of her teachers:

The twins are always drawing something or making paper creations. I recently found these while cleaning their room:

Gone are Jalen and Jordan's long twists! They received their yearly haircut the other night.

This little guy discovered chocolate, and I think he likes it as much as his momma does...

 Quin loves his giraffe pants...

 Some of Ashton's artwork:

It warms my heart to see these two reading Bible stories together before bed.

A New Era...

Our family has entered a new phase in life...the era of the teenage driver! Gone are the days when Shana was scared to climb on the bus every morning...

Now, she drives to school every morning, taking some of her siblings with her! Gone are the days when I have to pick her up after school and take her to she drives herself!

We celebrated Shana's 16th birthday by taking her and 2 of her best friends out to eat at Sakura, her favorite restaurant. We enjoyed frozen yogurt afterward.

It is definitely a bittersweet feeling to have a 16-year-old child already... Love you, Shanie!!!
