So, let me begin, youngest to oldest, because ladies are ALWAYS first! ;)
This is Lu . . .
My 6 year old ball of sunshine! She's the face of my page! Well, partially. She is a firecracker! She is full of joy and compassion! She is quite sensitive. She will cry to me tattling on her brothers for calling her dramatic, to which I politely point out to her that she is crying to me as she is saying it. It's quite comical.. I have to refrain from laughing at her cuteness. She embarrasses easily. Lu has no problem playing rough and getting her older brothers in arm bars, and such! Yet, she is a total girly girl. She wants to be a Princess when she grows up! She loves to pray, paint, make up songs to sing, and help me cook And she LOVES animals!
This is Cal . . .
He's my 7 year old. He's a smart cookie! The type of kid that is naturally good at anything he sets his mind to. I'm amazed by his intellect for his age! He loves Jesus and wants everyone to know it! He's a gentleman at heart. He loves music, puzzles, sports, and cuddling. He also loves animals and babies. Babies light up when he talks to them! It's amazing to watch. He has a huge heart! Aaaaannnd he's quite the stubborn fella. Not to say that's a bad quality, so long as it's for the right reasons.
This is Saiah . . .
He's my 9 year old. He is the most considerate little man, when it comes to helping Mom. He struggles a little bit with the whole "ladies first" concept. It's not fair to him. But he'll get a hang of it. He has a huge heart for the lost, the hurt, the lonely. He will pray for people all around the world to come to know Jesus! He has a huge call on his life, no doubt! I recognize it by the amount of attack on his mind that he is under. He and I butt heads quite often... because we are so alike. I look at him and see me at his age, it's crazy! Any of you relate? Saiah loves to be the center of attention! To make people laugh constantly! He is a gifted writer. Loves to draw. He loves football and is a natural in the athletics. He has mad breakdance skills ;) He loves Disney movies! Is slightly obsessed with Olaf. And he has the absolute cutest dimples! ;)
This is Z . . .
He's my 10 year old. This boy is an old soul. He is wise beyond his years! He's responsible, mostly. He's quirky, and I love it! Sometimes his OCD tendencies drive me crazy, but I'm nobody to really complain. He's intentional in the things he does. To him, there's always a reason for what he's doing. It's either to make someone feel good or, sometimes, bad. He loves to build things, create things, invent things. He will pick up a torn plastic bag off the ground and see it's great potential! I may not, but I love that he is able to. However, there is a difference between garbage and ...something worth keeping! If I left it up to him he would have cardboard box homes in his room with that plastic bag attached to a stick as a flag. Anyway, I love his creativity! Z cares deeply for people. He has amazing discernment. He is prophetic. He loves to pray. He loves art, music, reading, and Doctor Who.
As for me, I've shared much previously. Plus, you will only continue to know me better with each post you read. My kids are all expressions of me, really. Like Lu, I am joyful, sensitive, and a bit dramatic. Like Cal, I am not ashamed by my love for Jesus, and I am also very stubborn. Like Saiah, well... aside from having mad dance skills and being athletic, we are one in the same. Like Z, I am inspired by all that is around me. I love creating things and I try to live with intention.
Now that I have introduced you to my Family, I truly hope I have only added more depth to your reading experience on my site.
Please, feel free to leave comments, share your own fun experiences as a parent or family member. Hearing from you lets me know you're enjoying your read. It's great encouragement to me! And very much appreciated! :)
Have an amazing day! Be aware of your surroundings... there's inspiration all around you! Don't let it go to waste! It's God's way of inviting you to create something wonderful with Him!
