Nathanael's Summer Summed Up

Daddy and Nathanael snoozing together on our family vacation.

Nathanael and his friend Chris looking at a book together. Chris lives down the hall and we get to see him quite a bit. He is about 10 months younger than Nathanael

Nathanael at Chucky Cheese. Next time we go, he will have a little brother to take with him, Lord willing.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Nathanael.

Another picture at the farm. Nathanael loves to run around at the farm.

Nat getting ready for Church.

Nathanael got to go swimming quite a bit this summer. He loved the water and wasn't afraid one bit. He started kicking on his back with mama holding him of course.

Nathanael at the farm. He got to pick his first carrot and his first head of lettuce. It was so funny because once he got the carrot out of the ground he tried to put it back into the ground.

Every fourth of July the Fire Department has a breakfast and they let the kids explore the fire trucks and sit in the drivers seat. Nathanael had a good time.

Nathanael putting his books away. He loves to point out the cars and balloons and other things he recognizes on each page. He has taken to the fire trucks and cars. He likes to make car noises.

Auntie Felicia came to visit Nathanael this summer.

The Ligonier Partners Dinner

The Lord has been so good to America to give her such godly preachers that have kept the gospel pure and undefiled. What a blessing to still find strong doctrine and true love for God and his truth. Derek and I were blessed to meet Dr. R.C. Sproul and to hear him preach.

We also got to meet other believers that lived in our area who also appreciated good doctrine and strong preaching. R.C. Sproul has been a wonderful encouragement to Derek and I. When Derek and I first met we talked about the different preachers we both liked and even then we both had a love for R.C. Sproul as well as John MacArthur and John Piper. R.C. is one of those preachers you can listen to and not realize two hours have gone by. His movies: the Holiness of God as well as Chosen by God are some of our favorites.

At the end of the night as all of us were walking out, I got to meet R.C.'s wife. She was one of the sweetest woman I have ever met. You could tell she truly cared and that she loved R.C. God has truly been good to us. He has watched over us and loved us with his steadfast love. We praise him for allowing us to go to this small dinner.

Nathanael's Best Buddy, Aunty Jenna!

My best friend and sister has been such a blessing to our family. She has cared for and watched Nathanael like he was her own. I have been able to do many things because of this amazing girl who watches my son "just exactly the way I want." You know how all mothers like things done a certain way and each mother has her own ways. Well Jenna has really picked up on almost all the little ways I like things done. She will be a wonderful mother one day and will make some man a happy husband. I pray that the Lord will continue to work in her life. She truly is the best sister and best friend I have.

We are back!

It has been awhile since we have blogged, but we are back and we have some wonderful news. There is going to be another baby Cole. Praise the Lord he has heard our hearts desire. The Lord is so merciful and so so kind. First he redeemed us and now he has blessed us with another soul to raise for him. Nathanael has been a huge blessing to us. He is starting to walk and he can say thank you in sign language. He is a very wild boy for which we rejoice but can be tired out many a day. We will let you know if this next little blessing is a boy or a girl. Either is fine with us. Please pray for a healthy delivery. We are trying to have an all natural birth this time around. May it be.
