My beautiful children and some of their thoughts!

Yesterday at lunch, Katie was sharing about how she done something that I thought was very clever--right now I can't recall what it was, so sorry!---but I asked the question, "What made you think to do that?" wondering what thought process was behind my sweet daughter's thoughts...before she could answer, Mark piped up, "Her brain." He said it so casually, we started to laugh! Who knew the child knew what a "brain" was and what it did. I often refer to using your brain, but sometimes with Mark, it doesn't seem to sink in...but we see that it did. It's hard to remember that Mark is growing up...sometimes, I still think of him as 3 and he is FIVE!!!

The pictures below were drawn very quickly by our friend Marina at the retreat we went on. How beautiful they are...and sooo accurate!!! The kids do look older---Marina had told us when young people are drawn they appear more mature in the pictures, and when older people are drawn they look younger. So true! Mark wanted to get in the picture, so you see how beautiful three of my kiddos are. Matthew will have to be posted later:).

More pics are on my facebook account...if anyone knows how to get there without having a fb account, please tell me:) it possible?

Try copying the URL of the album in Facebook and seeing if you can look at it without being logged in.

You guys do have beautiful kids! Mary has spoken very highly of you, but she didn't tell me you were Aggies, too! Whoop! I am class of '01. My husband from Maryland still does not understand why being an Aggie is such a big deal, but I know you will get it. ;-) Rich blessings to you as you serve the Lord in Russia! Thank you for being a blessing to our sister. And glad you can use the curtains!
In Christ, Lisa
