City Slicker

Why yes, that is a 'cowboy' wearing his smushed cowboy hat on the outside of his hooded fleece with Vans and some sweatpants. This is a close H cared to get to dressing up like a cowboy for the church mother/son BBQ.

The elders are so sweet to host our 3-6 year old boys and coach them in the ways of the west.

H's favorite center: gun range.

Branding a cow.

The stache lasted 2.2 seconds - thus the blur.

So I was lucky enough.
Who knew drinking from a boot could be so fascinating?
Rope tricks from an actual cowboy.

We're naturals.

700 walking for hope is hopeful, indeed.

Sunday was Walk for Hope. Almost 700 people from MRCC walked the OC campus in support of the 16 kids that our Journey Land kids and Heartbeat for Hope support at Village of Hope in Ghana. Filled my soul to see so many of all ages together for one cause.

Karyn, my awesome co-organizer.
There were 7 kid-run booths with baked goods, trinkets, popsicles, stuffed animals, and jewelry. All of the kids' proceeds were donated.
Some cute walkers.

Thank you to everyone who participated and donated!

How many different expressions can you make in 5.2 seconds?

 I don't think the 2 year old can come close in this competition with the 4 year old.

Better luck next time, buddy.

Happy #2, S!

I cannot believe it has been two years since you came into our world.

I would never want to imagine you not in our lives. You are so sweet, and precious. I am loving seeing your personality come through - your nurturing, caring heart and your subtle, but silly sense of humor. Your love for learning and books, and need for organization and order (you are so my child).

I love you, Simon Charles!

 Happiest of birthdays to my big 4 year old!

I love you, Henson Marr!
