Children.

You have heard the saying..
"Children are a gift from God."

What truth.

Think about it.

God.... giving US the HONOR of raising an ETERNAL soul. 
Not just a human.
but a spirit.
a soul.
An eternal soul that we are in charge of. 
We guide. 
We teach.
We help direct. 





Livia is 3 weeks tomorrow. 
We are smitten with her. 


Her eyes are just like her brothers...

Deep. DRAWING YOU IN....

Just like their daddy's. ;)

Many people talk DOWN about having boys.

I've heard negative comments from many.

Here is my statement to those that say these things. 
. . . . . . 

"Why are you not up for the challenge?"
"What makes you scared?"


Little boys are a treasure. 
Tristan has brought such JOY to my heart. 
Zach and I call him... "OUR JOY"
"Our entertainment" 
He is always thinking about the next step. 

Yes. He is FULL of energy.
. . . . . 
I tell Zach... "I think Tristan MAKES me have energy....he is always pushing me along the way."

He is a beautiful son to have. 
I'm so blessed that GOD TRUSTED ME
to raise a YOUNG MAN
for HIM.




I am just finishing the book...
"Bringing up Boys."
. . . . 
It's been EYE OPENING. 
(NEXT UP: Bringing up Girls. ) 




Parenting isn't for the weak. 
That is certain. 



COMING UP ON MY NEXT POST:

The thing I have learned from being a PARENT.
