This is so precious to me. Every Saturday we have a tradition of making pancakes for breakfast. David LOVES helping me, especially with the chocolate chips. Well this past Saturday morning David took on the responsibility of setting the table. I kept handing him items and he'd return to the kitchen for more. Well when I finally stopped to check on his progress this is what I found. I shouldn't be surprised, but I was. Our precious little boy is growing up. He did a fantastic job & we were so proud of him. I have been trying to apply scripture to every detail of our lives, and though maybe not so spiritual a moment, this was still a very big deal in our house. We thank God for his provisions & guidance in our everyday life moments.
David, Andrew, & Jacob enjoyed the big foam shapes

David's Nona brought him this airplane book which we all love!
On our way!
It had been raining all day, and David thought it was fun to play with it.
We had a wonderful visit with our family. Thank you for flying, driving, and taking the train all this way to see us!
The following week we headed up to Annapolis, MD. A fellow Marine was killed in Iraq so Jim decided to attend his funeral at the Naval Academy. David & I went with him, but we shopped around downtown while Jim went to the service. We also we able to meet up with Jim's sponsor parents Sarah & Denis. They took us out for a delicious italian dinner Friday night. We had a wonderful visit with them as it had been over a year since we we back at the Academy.

David & I enjoyed breakfast together on the water while Daddy headed to the Academy.
This was our view from our table...beautiful!
Though not under the best circumstances, we enjoyed our trip to MD and look forward to the Air Force game in October!
