Wednesday night was Awana awards night. The kids were so excited to finish up their year of Awana and receive their awards for their hard work.
The Puggles were absolutely adorable all lined up in a row and getting their certificates. Gabe will be moving up to Cubbies in the fall.
Jadyn won Cubbie of the Year! She was so excited to get a medal to wear around her neck. She has only taken it off to sleep! LOL She will be moving up to Sparks in the fall!
Mj got an excellence trophy for finishing book 2 in Truth in Training

I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a mom of these 4 amazing kids! When I was a little girl, I always imagined myself as a mom but I couldn't have imagined the craziness of life with 4 kiddos! =)It was easy to be a mom to be Cabbage Patch Kids, not as easy to be a mom of 4 "real" kids! ;) I'm thankful that God gives me the grace I need every day as I parent these 4 precious gifts and teach them of their Rescuer, Jesus and how much He loves them.

Wow! I've been a horrible blogger! There's bit some sickness going around the family and busyness with the end of the school year, but I am here to update on life.
Job is sitting up pretty well by himself. He loves the Fisher Price Noah's Ark with the animals. It's definitely a favorite toy of his.
Job also started crawling this past week. He's got the army crawl down and is really moving very quickly. I forgot how quickly they learn to crawl. He is all over the place now! Where has the time gone? He's my earliest crawler and I'm hoping this doesn't mean he'll be an early walker! This momma is not ready for that!! ;)
Gabe has started saying, "I love you Mom, too" just randomly throughout the day. It melts my heart!
Craziness and silliness are always happening around the house.
We've been watching the Miami Heat in their playoff games.
Jadyn has been all about feeding Job his supper. It's quite messy, but they both enjoy it!
And just cause he's so stinkin' cute, I had to add another picture of the Jobester!
Poor Jadyn had an eye infection and ear infection. She got the worst part of the sickies. I'm so thankful she is feeling so much better!
We were able to get some house projects finished. We've been here in Miami for almost 2 years and we're still slowly getting our house to look like a home! ;) We got our family pictures up with the wall decal my sis-in-law got us, a new dining room light. My amazing hubby built our new dining room table and bench and we got some new chair from IKEA.
I also got this wall finished. I'm so thankful for pinterest! It inspires me! ;)

I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to stay home with my kids. I get to have opportunities like I did this day to share the amazing creation God has made for us to enjoy and to learn from. We were outside enjoying a beautiful afternoon wen Jadyn & Gabe noticed a line of ants walking down the sidewalk. One of the ants was carrying a leaf and I shared with them how strong ants are and what hard workers they are. And that God tells us in the Bible that we are to look at the ants, because they are a good example of hard workers. Ants are not lazy. So we watched them some more and thanked God for creating ants!
Jadyn decided to catch an ant and let it crawl on her hand.
I even taught Job about ants. He was such a good listener.=)
