Pictures to share!

I have finally taken a minute to post some things on my blog after a LOOOOONG absence. Here are some pictures of things that have been happening here. First of all, James graduated from the University of Arkansas in May with a BS in Business/Information Systems. He plans to go to work in Tokyo, Japan if all goes well. He is multilingual (Spanish, German and Japanese). While I am not really excited about him being on the other side of the world, I am thrilled that he has completed his degree and has a bright future ahead of him.

Secondly, Emma graduated from high school a year early, and went to prom recently. I have posted some photos of her and Brent. She asked me to make her dress, and I had a great time designing and making it the way she envisioned.

Thirdly, Aiden will turn 2 on July 25, and we had some pictures made at a local park last Saturday. The photographer is a neighbor of ours, and she has sent 4 proofs so far. He is so adorable, if I must say so!  I just love him so much.

We have 8 people living in our home this summer, Bill, me, James, Brandon, Emma, Aiden, Danbi (our Korean student Рvery sweet girl), and sometimes Brent sleeping on the couch. We also have a friend or two staying over occasionally.  Fortunately my teaching load is lighter this summer so I am home a lot more to cook and work around the house. I still expect everyone to pitch in, but we are enjoying spending time together.

Here are some pictures I am sharing with you today…

New Pictures to Share With You

Here is precious Aiden with his mommy, Emma. He is 8 weeks old now and has doubled his birthweight!

I am proud of how Emma has grown and how well she cares for her son. Keep in mind that she will only be 16 years old in October. She is breastfeeding, and Aiden is obviously loving that! God has been so gracious in this situation.


Here is a photo from the anniversary party — finally got a copy from my sister!

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back on Thursday.
