Can you see him? It's blurry because he's moving. I couldn't believe it. There he was standing ready to jump backwards! And he did it with the greatest of ease. He and Chatham love gymnastics. Mak says he doesn't but he smiles the whole time he's out there and they get to do some really neat stuff.
Chatham and his friend Chloe do their best to answer questions on a music lesson that was for their older siblings. These two could have been off playing - which eventually they were - instead of making such an effort to be part of the big kids.
Some pictures truly are worth a thousand words, but let me give you the story behind this one. David was to give Jack a bath, so I set him down in the bathroom and went to get his clothes, but before David realized it Jack had snuck out of the bathroom, grabbed his blanket from our bed and met me in his room, all smiles!
Mak, Chatham and their friend Noah add the starter and coloring for the next batch of cheese. We all enjoyed learning about the process of making both butter and cheese, with some hands on experience. That night we savored popcorn with freshly churned butter (turned with their own hands). Though not pictured, TJ was there too!
We got to spend ten days with family over Christmas break, which is always a blessing, since we don't always get to see everyone together. We flew down to Grand Cayman. The weather was wonderful and many memories were made. We were blessed with almost no waves so the kids got to spend lots and lots of time in the calm ocean waters. TJ enjoyed his first fishing trip with his Dad and uncles, and was proud of his only catch, this Wahoo.
