Josiah turns Four!

Not much to update you on our wait for Ana so we thought we would post Josiah's big 4th birthday bash. He's growing up so fast. He prays that "God will protect his little sister all the way over in China" every night, and more often than not, asks why we can't go there yet.

Josiah Thomas turned 4 on July 30. He had friends over for backyard water fun! The highlight of his gifts were his new sandbox that mom and dad bought and papa built, his new loader from nana and papa, new backhoe from Grandma and Grandpa, and of course, new drum sticks and a new drum instructional DVD. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Another Benefit . . .

We held a benefit yard sale on July 8 & 9. Thanks to many friends who donated and showed up to find new treasures to purchase for themselves! A special thank you to my special friend, Amelia. She donated a huge portion of her sales. Also a special thanks to Megan who sold drinks and delicious cookies. She raised $50 for us! We were able to raise $1000 as a result of the yard sale. Again, we were blessed. God is so good!
