Eccles. 3:1~

There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens. Eccles. 3:1~

It's that time again.. Back to School~

Sweet Pea looks shocked.. Doesn't she? Time goes by so incredibly fast. We were at one of our favorite parks the other day. It was a park we use to go with our dear friends "The S Family" and we think of you every time we are there.

It seems like yesterday I was sitting at that park on my due date with our third child. I was still very much pregnant and so desperate for time to pass. Now I realize how quickly these little ones grow.

My dear cousin Jenny 's
wonderful children were just little tots and now they are wonderful young adults. It seems as if it happened overnight.

It is so fun to watch your children grow and see them develop into godly young people. Our older children make us laugh and are so insightful and helpful. We will always be nostalgic over what they were like as young ones. Parenthood is such a blessing.

We have always encouraged our children to follow God's call on their lives. I thought it would be fun to write down where they feel led right now..

He would like to be a missionary pilot...

She would like like to teach at an orphanage in Ethiopia..
She wants to be a Homeschooling Mama..
She would love to be an artist..
He wants to be a police officer..
He would like to be a farmer..
He would like to be a firefighter...
He would like to drive stock cars...
The children feel her calling is to be an electrician...really! She has a knack for finding electrical cords where ever we go ;o)

Where ever God calls them we are blessed He has entrusted these precious little ones to our care.

I recognize that park!! Do they still let you tour the fire station? I love the pictures of all the places you've been lately. :)
