The Joy of Children

Yesterdat K-man, Bren & Nick spent much of the day out at the Saunders' house helping with whatever they could (wow, overwhelming....lots to be done there!). I had the pleasure of taking care of all the little kiddos (I got the easy job!).


Liberty, Isaiah, Lucy, Elizabeth and Elijah were my sweet companions and they had such a blast together!! Sweet little Elijah (turning 2 on Sunday!) seemed a little lost without his Mama but tried his best to keep up with the older kids...while still sensing that things were not quite right. Elizabeth and Lucy quickly hit it off & shared in their "mothering" skills. Oh my goodness....they found some baby dolls (we spent the afternoon at Linn's friend Kim's house) & together they hoovered over their babies, kissing them, covering them up, etc. Oh, it was priceless!! I will post pics later but let me just say, they were stinkin' adorable!!!!

We went to dinner last night with the whole gang. It was fun but still seemed like a cloud overhead with all that's going on. I'm not sure that any other family could take all that they have endured without running away screaming. But they are just focusing on the tasks at hand and keeping a thankful spirit about them. Amazing.

**Emily, I gave the Dwight & Linn your generous gift & they were tearfully thankful. You are an incredible young lady and God will certainly bless you greatly for your tender heart.
