Gavin Turned 2!!!

Hard to believe that our baby boy is 2!  Time flies!  This year, we had a party at the Aquatic Center with goldfish as a snack and fish cupcakes as a dessert!  Too fun!  Enjoy the pics!

What's new?

Greetings!  Long time no write!  Wow, you have a kiddo, and life just seems to get busier!  Priorities definitely change, as I have not posted since April!  Anyways, life is good.  At this point in our lives, Matt is in Africa, Charity is on the hunt for a new adventure in nursing, and Gavin is about to turn 2!  What a crazy, fun, and emotional time!  Though at times we become weary of the day to day responsibilities, we find great joy in small things like going for bikerides, looking for creatures, feeding birds, reading books before bedtime, and sitting on the porch at dusk eating ice cream as the loudness of the day begins to quiet down.  Though it seems to become more and more difficult to make time for those moments amongst all the "things to do," we're trying!!!  Hope you're finding some time to make sweet memories in the chaotic days of your life as well!  We love you all!  Enjoy the pics!

Our crazy life...

Well, a lot has happened since our last blog post! In short, our family went to Louisville, KY, Calhoun, TN, and San Francisco, CA, and Matt has gone to Amman, Jordan, Singapore, Indonesia, and is now somewhere called Baubau. I still need to look that place up! I can't speak for Matt's trips, as he is still gone at the moment, but I will say that our family trips were wonderful! What a blessing for the three of us to go visit people from our recent past and go to a Missions conference with people who have a heart for Somali people living in the horn of Africa. After that conference, all I can say is that there is a great need beyond the borders of North America and that it would do each of us good to experience it for ourselves to realize how unimportant our "stressors" are day to day. In short, I will say that I gained a major perspective change! If you want to know more, please ask! I'd love to share what the Lord taught me that week! Enjoy the pics!
