My sweet angels!

We have been SOOOO busy this summer! I can't even begin to thank my parents enough for all the work that went into raising my brothers and me. Having three children has really opened my eyes to the sacrifices that my parents made for us, and a new found thanks for all they put up with, (at least from me!) Raising three kids is hard work, and doing it right is even harder! ( I like to 'think' I'm doing it right!) Our family has been so busy day to day with all of our daily activities! It amazes me that summer is supposed to be the break from all of the craziness! Kayden has been growing like a weed and has never been more of an entertainer! he loves to perform and be in the spotlight..... I'm not sure where he gets this from! Michael is officially potty trained and talking up a storm... We understand him most clearly when he is fighting with his brother, something about bugging Kayden makes his brain function clearly!! Lily is now 4 months and laughing, smiling, rolling over, and preparing to crawl... She is such a strong little girl.... I joke that it is because she is getting strength to dodge her brothers attacks... They LOVE HER!!!!! Mike has gotten orders to Fort Riley, Ks and so in November our family will be heading up there.... We are excited to see what God has in store for us... Kansas was not on our list, but we know He is preparing a home for us there, so we will be obedient to His call! We were saddened to hear that we were going to be leaving our friends here and venturing into the unknown, but we are confident that our Lord has a perfect plan for our lives.....In him we find PEACE! Romans 5:1-5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. 3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:1-5
