Andrew is doing great :)

Andrew has learned how to eat all by himself. I can't believe just last summer he was learning how to eat table food. Now he eats table food all by himself. He is getting so big and learning so much. We all love it. Just look at him it makes me smile every time I see him eating or learning something new. Good job Andrew Briggs.

Happy Birthday Jonas

singing Happy Birthday
blowing his candles
we had a Pirates of the Caribbean party. They all had a blast wearing the eye patches and being a pirates

I love their smiles

Today Jonas turned 17 years old. I can not believe where the time goes. Jonas has changed so much since he has been home. He loves taking pictures, or fixing something. He could be an engineer. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you.

An Easter Scene

We did it last year and doing it this year. It is such an easy and a great idea for the little ones to learn what is Easter all about. It is three crosses on one of them where Jesus  had died and the tomb where he rose three days later with the stone rolled away.

We are still waiting for the grass to grow :)

Practice and Perfection

1 John 4:12  If we love each other, God lives in us, and his love has been brought to full expression through us.

  Love is a gift from God that must be used in order to be useful. The more you love others, the more your capacity to love will grow. The more you sacrifice for others, the more deeply you will care for all people.
 You also have the wonderful promise that if you love others, God the source of love lives in you. The more you practice his unfailing love, the more his presence is perfected in you.
 The blessing of love is twofold. Love others, and not only will your love grow, but God the spring from which all love flows will show himself more powerfully within you.
