"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

delayed, but not denied

I have been a horrible, horrible blogger. Time just seems to be flying by since school let out. I'm sorry. Really. I am.

But, as promised, here are graduation pictures!

My sweet little boy is going to Kindergarten. Can someone please tell me how that could be? It was just yesterday that I held this teeny, tiny, frail little boy that could only utter sounds and crawl around at 22 months. Now, he's bursting with enough energy to keep the sun lit and speaks non-stop. Literally. Yes, even while he sleeps.

Then, there's my girl. My little girl that somehow turned 4 over night. She has one more year of preschool to go, but I am so proud of her accomplishments. This Friday we will be celebrating Anna Grace's second Forever Family Day with us! Again, where has time gone? I'm preparing a full update on her past year at home, including her still remaining struggles and big achievements with her attachment!

I am so very blessed to call these sweeties my children! Thank You, Lord!

Your children are beautiful! I know what you mean about the time flying. My oldest son is 6, will be 7 in July, and I can't wrap my brain around the fact that he'll be starting second grade in the fall.

Oh Ohilda....it is so sad when they begin to start school isn't it? They get that independent streak that they can do everything themselves.....you have beautiful babies my friend!
