We had a wonderful day celebrating Garrett and his dedication! We were so blessed to have both sets of parents here for the occasion along with our friends at Park. We can only hope that we do our job as parents and raise our children to grow up knowing the truth and choose to follow the path God has set for them. The verse we chose for Garrett is:
Proverbs 4:20-27 ESV
“My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.”
So one morning we had great weather and I decided to take Garrett’s 3 month pictures outside. The kids were playing bubbles, playing catch, and running around…well it was all going great until Ryann tripped over a ball and scraped her face on the sidewalk. Her poor little face was marked up pretty good for a few days, but fortunately it was healed well…and I was able to get some great pictures of our happy little man.
What a BEAUTIFUL day for a beach party! We did the same exact thing as we did for her first birthday because it was fun for all ages. Ryann loves the beach, as well as all her friends, so it was a perfect party!
I took these pictures of our beautiful little girl in just 5 minutes before we left for her well doctor visit. I love how much personality of hers that these pictures show…she is just precious!!
Parker started his second year of preschool at Henry’s House and loves it! I know he’s excited to be back and playing with his school friends again. At first I was worried about how Ryann was going to do with Parker out of the house, but the transition has been great. She loves the quality time with Mommy, especially when Garrett is napping. I just love these pictures…shows just how much fun Parker & Ryann always have together. I cannot wait to see all 3 kids like this when Garrett is old enough to join in!
Just hanging out in front of our house! 🙂
