Happy Birthday to my favorite little boy!! I love you Parker for the sweet little boy that you are. I admire that you want to be the best in everything you do. I marvel how you watch out for your little sisters. And I cherish how you love each member of your family. I can't wait for the many years we have together and all the growing you will be doing. Have a wonderful day. Love you, Mom.
It's not everyday, nor even once a month, that we get a steady drizzle in AZ. So, I made sure that we enjoyed every minute of the rain. As you can see, I didn't have to twist too many arms to go along with my plan. I had their full attention. Needless to say, they had a blast and I got some great pictures out of it.
I can't help but be so proud of Ellie. Not only is she WAY to young to be doing Karate, but she is also really good. Sigung was so impressed with her in class that he awarded her a white belt. I thought she was going to pass out with delight. She truly loves to be on the mat and is continually begging me to "teach me mom". Of course I am so excited to pass this art on to my children, and I am pretty sure that both Parker and Ellie will surpass me in ability. Can't wait for the day. :)
I have to say that we have some of the CUTEST kids that have ever existed. :) There are so many moments (like the one above) that make me smile when raising children. I can't help but be jubilantly affected by them and their energy. They truly are fun to be around.
