After wearing braces on his teeth for almost two years, Parker is now free from having a mouth full of metal! Woohoo!
And, in just a matter of minutes...
Shortly after 9AM on Monday, July 25, we went from being a family of 14 (including our Ukrainian host boys) to temporarily being a family of 10.
Our 4 "medium kids" are at an overnight kids' camp at our church.
They were SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited! After all, that's what "big kids" do, right? What a privilege to attend an overnight camp...and one where they LOVE Jesus, even better!!!
The 4 mediums will be at camp Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I thought the house would be really quiet without them, but Selah has found her very loud voice. Squealing and screeching at the top of her lungs. She discovered it in church Sunday. :-)
Plus, we still have 7 other kiddos at home to fill our home with a joyful noise. And they are doing that task well.
Children are a blessing; a reward from Him. Grateful for all our treasures. Thank you, Abba Father.
