Life Lately

March 27th, 2016 March went by so fast.  Here’s a quick update on what’s been going on… On March 9th, Sumner got his braces off.  This was a BIG deal! The transformation that has taken place is amazing! The orthodontist sent him home with this fun poster and lots of gooey candy he hasn’t been allowed to eat since the braces went on. Photo on left= before braces. Photo on right= after braces. Period of time between the 2 photos= 2 years. Sadie got her first cut at the groomers. If it’s possible, her hair was even softer and fluffier than before. Adam and I...

Camp Blessing

August 3rd-8th, 2015 Sumner and Jonah got to experience something priceless this past week.  They served at Camp Blessing, a camp for mentally handicapped and physically handicapped children that don’t get to attend the typical summer camps.  I prayed that God would use this experience to awaken them to the needs all around them.  He did just that and more.  They came out of this experience with a heart for the campers that attended.  Sumner & Jonah saw how much each of the campers thoroughly enjoyed life, never feeling sorry for themselves or sad about their circumstances. ...

Sumner is 14.

May 30th, 2015 Sumner turned 14 today.  This past year has been a big one for him as he is really coming into his own.  He has shown great signs of maturity and independence.  There have also been some of the normal struggles that come with the teen years but Adam and I can’t complain.  He is a really great kid.  Time will only tell what God has in store for him, but I know Sumner will be ready for the task at hand.  He is so smart and has a really good head on his shoulders.  He thrives in competition and has been gifted with natural leader abilities.  Happy 14th birthday,...
