Chess Tournament

Silas and Titus won first and second place at a local chess tournament. 

They had to face each other for the title of first place – Silas won this year. 

Great job boys! We are so proud of you. 



Earth Day 1k

Silas and Adie ran the Earth Day race last night. They did a wonderful job. 




When I look at that adorable grin, I can’t imagine him being a little Knix nooks. 


But this week he has dumped out all shampoo and conditioners in the kids bathroom, emptied the soap container in the bathroom twice, destroyed some makeup and painted on the carpet in the craft room. 

I think I need to tie him to me for the next couple of months.

The world at our table

We tried to explain to the Turkish professors how we can’t travel the world with our children because it’s something we can’t afford, but we can bring the world to our table.

We have been so unbelievable blessed by opening our home.

Lydia’s Baptizm

It is glorious to know that we will spend eternity worshipping Jesus.
