She's Gone...

My tiny little baby girl is at overnight camp!!
She was asked by her nice friend Emma to go to Covenant Harbor camp in Lake Geneva, WI. Her counselor Rachel is 19 and very sweet.

Sissy's on the bottom bunk, Emma on the top.(I miss her!)

Scotty and Mac wanted to stay too.

This is Sissy's cabin.

The camp is so beautiful and right on the lake. She's going to have the time of her life.

Sissy cried and so did I. Knowing that she's going to learn and grow these next couple days makes my heart so happy. Please pray for her if you think about it. Camp ends Saturday at 9:00am. That's only 59.5 hours from now. But who's counting.

This just just a side note. On the way up to Wisconsin we had to stop at a gross Wal*Mart. Sam HATES the car. He cried his face off, but the second I got him out of his seat he was all smiles and giggles. I love him! After a 1/2 hour walk around the store he was much better.

O, What a Week!

Our friend Owen came to Chicago to spend the week with us. Big Scott was out of town serving in inner city Chicago so we spent the week doing fun things.

Sam was giving Robyn some love.

Sam's first trip to Costco. (the kids needed ice cream)

Watching the kids swim.

My littlest sweetheart.

Have I mentioned how awesome Amelia is?!

Samuel could NOT be any sweeter!

He's just about crawling.


The kids had a blast fighting in the yard.

Scary dudes.

Capturing the girls.

Having fun.

Late night ice cream before bed.

Sam seriously doesn't bathe alone.

Popcorn shop.

Annoyed on the bike.

That darn bike helmet.

Trying to remove it.

Love him!!

Owen was a great biker. He didn't complain one bit. We took a 7 mile bike ride two days in a row.

He and June were racers.

Enjoying candy and popcorn.

Neighborhood Bible CluB! Sissy got a pie in the face!

We drove to Nanny and Papa's house to enjoy a parade and celebrate Cousin Lulu's birthday.

Sis surprised us!

Sammy was a good sport.


Happy cousins.

Girl cousins.

The parade was awesome!

Sis got a couple necklaces.

The kids got more candy than they could even carry.

Next we went to Cousin Lulu's 3rd birthday party. I lost my camera so I have no birthday pictures.

It was seriously the perfect week. O was an angel and such a joy to have around. Can't wait to do it again next summer!!!

We Love Summer!

Phone Pictures

These pictures are all taken from my phone. This was the first morning that Sam was home.

We've been to the pediatrician 4 times and the dermatologist twice. Thankfully, Sam is doing great. We will see a pediatric cranial specialist on Monday the 27th regarding his head shape.
(please pray for that)

Sissy's last day of school breakfast! She and I went on an early morning date.

When I was gone to Ethiopia Scott took the boys to garage sales and bought them.... GIANT CARNIVAL ANIMALS. (sick)

The boys love them.

We got new bunk beds for the gentlemen and finally made their room like nice.

We laid a blanket out in our front yard to watch the big kids ride bikes.

More doctors.

I love these guys.

First time he fell esleep in his car seat.

My other tiny baby, trying out Sam's seat.

Macker giving Sam a foot washing.

Macker loves playing with the water hose.

This picture makes me so happy. Samuel hardly ever puts ANY wait on his leggers. We have been practicing but he just doesn't like to be in that position. While I was filling the bath he really wanted to see what was going on so I stood him up and HE did it! He was only in this position for about 30 seconds but I'm still so encouraged!

I love my babies!
