Kids keep growing....

My oldest turned 14 a couple of weeks ago. How is this possible?

We are so blessed to be a part of a wonderful homeschool community where Simeon has made some really great (and hilarious) friends. We told him he was too big for a party, and then while he was gone to Walmart with his dad, his friends mysteriously appeared behind the couch when he walked in the door. It was so great to see his surprised expression, and we had a great time.

I love, love love, that my teenage boy insists on celebrating his birthday every year with his sister, Ava. Their birthdays are three days apart. Maybe this is why they have such a special bond. I wish you could see her face light up when she hears his voice or his name. She adores her brother! (And vice versa).

Ava's second favorite person is her little brown cousin. Well, it goes without saying that her favorite birthday present was a little brown baby from her Aunt Marlita. So sweet. 

Ava has now been a part of our family longer than she was ever an orphan! What a great milestone to celebrate. Happy Birthday Simeon and Ava!
