At first, I was a little nervous, because it was night when we first got there and we got a little lost. It was raining and we were on a curvy and winding road and there were a few street signs "missing." So, in my mind I kept thinking why would anyone want to live in a place like this. When I woke up the next morning, the first thing I saw out of the window was a beautiful dogwood tree w/ red leaves that sat right in front of one of the children's bedrooms. When I walked out the door of her home to go to the funeral, I fell in love w/ this place. Her house seemed to be so perfectly situated on a hill nestled in by trees. It was then I realized why my friend loves it there so much.
The funeral was very nice and I want to thank you all for praying for my friend, Teresa. She has a strong spirit and knows that God is w/ her every step of the way. She is blessed w/ family, friends, and a church that loves them there. Teresa, if you read this, know that there are many people out there praying for you and your children.

Sophie said her shadow was a cow. I can see that, can't you?
Henry's is a deer.
Samuel told me that his is a Serval. For those of you (including me) who do not know what a Serval is, it is a large cat w/ long ears that lives in Africa. He is really into reading about jaguars, mountain lions, cheetahs and other large cats lately.
Lizzy's shadow is a rabbit. They had a lot fun trying to do all sorts of shapes and animals.

Today was beautiful and we spent some of it outdoor at Sadie's soccer game. She scored 3 goals and did her fair share of blocking some attempts by the other team. The thing I love about Sadie is that she is 100% present at everything she does. No half way jobs for her! That is just one of the many things I love about her!
