Once again, I need to post so that my blog doesn't close on me. I'll just show some of the highlights from this past summer and fall
First things first, this beautiful little girl turned 8 and chose to be baptized. She was so excited...and nervous. But she was ready. We practiced being baptized for about a year before hand because Buggy was so nervous to do it. Practice paid off but I still think that if she had to have been dunked again, she wouldn't have gone for it.
Her and her hero before the baptism.
One quick little moment I want to share. After she got baptized, her and I were in the locker room drying her off and getting her dressed again and she got really quiet all of a sudden. I asked her what she was thinking and she said, I wish my Mommy in heaven could have been here. I was so touched by this little statement and with tears in my eyes I told her that her Mommy in heaven wouldn't have missed this day for anything. I told her that I knew for a fact she was right there, watching her be baptized and that she was just as pleased with Buggy's decision to be baptized as I was. She got a little teary eyed herself, gave me this huge hug and told me, "Thank you Mommy!"
A big change this year, we moved to a new home. We are still renting but it was time for a change for us so we moved to a new place. We love the home, not so much the neighborhood but it is a just for now place anyway. We fit a lot better and we are grateful to have it.
This crazy crew started school in the fall. We have Boo, age 13, started 8th grade. Buggy, age 8, started 2nd grade. Bubba, age 7, started 7th grade. Hammy, age 5, started Kindergarton. They were excited and ready to start school again. So was I! :)
Not much else to share. We had family pictures taken this December and this is the result.
Boo, age 14
Bubba, age 7
Hammy, age 5
Buggy, age 8
Midget, age 2 (turned 3 the next week)
Sure love this bunch. I'll try and do better about blogging, I enjoy letting others know just what this crew has been up to. Lots of Love, The Wolfpack!
