Today, we had church. My handsome and growing stepson gave his life to the Lord a few years back but has been hesitant to be baptized. We've had a lot of conversations about it and today, he leaned over the Jason and said, "Dad, I want to be baptized, next week." We just were so excited! I wish we had a picture, but it happened so fast, I just didn't grab my camera. I will have pictures and video from the actual baptism, though.
I am just so happy for him - he has really chosen the Lord and has chosen to hold His word in His heart. He is very serious about his decision and even though it took him a little while to decide on baptisms (which take alot of courage!) we know that his decision is a solid, wise one that God led his heart to. If you get a moment, pray for him this week, will you?
Then, there are these little girls. Man, they are both messes individually, but get them together, and you are in for it. Avery won't keep her hair up to save her life. It aggravates me to no end, not because I want her hair to be picture perfect, but because it's CONSTANTLY in her face. Drives me crazy.
This little munchkin played in the sprinkler and kept taking "showers." She is such a joy with her gorgeous smile and personality!!
She kept telling me "Cheese!" Think we stick a camera in their face from time to time, or what?
I tried to get a good picture of Avery (who is swimming like crazy), but she kept just wanting to spit water out of the pool.
Oh, Sophie. You are my crazy child.
And I did get a few action shots of the powerful athletes in action, which I will be sending off the Sports Illustrated shortly..
These are some great shots I got of some fabulous looking kiddos!
Tell me he doesn't look 20, here.
She is loving every minute of swimming these days!!
