"Kapable Karis"

Our "Kapable Karis" excels at nearly everything she tries. She is a determined young lady which has been key in her successful transition into our family and life in America. We are so proud of her latest accomplishment... completing gymnastics, with a performance at the annual "Fun Meet".
Well done, sweet girl!

Mother's Day

I'm catching up with a Mother's Day tid bit...
How blessed am I? Beautiful hand-made cards, letters, and drawings... from Karis, a gift card for a manicure and pedicure. (Talk about pampering-wow!) From Evan, a Joyce Meyer book. (That's my boy, my little soul mate.) From Karrigan, yummy coffee. (She knows mommy's day is always better with coffee!) My sweet babes know their mama well and put a lot of thought into making Mom's Day special... I am grateful, humbled, and proud to be their mommy!

Sweet Music

They are...
To my ears! I Chronicles 15:16 "David told the leaders of the Levites to appoint their brothers as singers to sing joyful songs accompanied by musical instruments, lyres, harps and cymbals." (Double click on the photos, to enlarge.)
