dear rebekah, joshua, bailey and sawyer,
we went to the farm this morning. we hadn't been in about a month because we've been too busy and it's been too hot. but, we woke up to an 80 degree day and it was PERFECT for spending the day at the farm!
i am so blessed to be your mom. i LOVE being with you...each one of you...and all of you together. it makes my heart feel full and complete.
i love your voices and your laughter and your warm hands in mine. i love you questions and your stories and your smiles.
it was so nice to be together and not be in a rush...to not look at my watch...and i could sense that you could tell we weren't in a rush and you really enjoyed yourselves. i hope to make our lives more like that.
one of my favorite parts was sitting in a chair and just watching you all. sawyer stayed close by me, as always :-)
i love how you care for each other and play together so well.
your 2 brothers in Rwanda have no idea the blessing they are going to have in each of you! i can't wait for them to meet you and play with you!
you are getting older. you are all so helpful and handle responsibility well. i'm proud of each of you.
today was a gift that i'll remember for a long time.
we even stopped at the "little store" on the way out of town and got a cookie.
your appreciation was precious to me. thank you.
i love you with all my heart, your mom
