Jeremiah 29:11

Many of the parents had picked the verse Jeremiah 29:11 for their seniors. What a great verse for us all.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11
These boys are so sweet!

Real men do wear pink:)
He sat up like a big boy in the stroller in the shade. He loved watching his brothers.
We have lots of fun on the swingset.
It was really hot!

Sunday was our graduations service at church. There were 33 members of the youth group graduating. It was neat to see the stage full of awesome young people with their families and hear all the exciting plans and adventures that await them. I even had some of the seniors in first and second grade which is scary! I couldn't help but think in just 13 short years we will be standing on the same stage with our Baylor boy. I know that time goes by so fast. Parenting really is such a big job with awesome rewards. We want our boys to grow up in church and become godly young men. I want them to be able to follow their dreams and have as many life opportunities as possible. The best part is that I know God's plan is perfect and he is truly their best friend for life!
After church we went to breakfast with Mimi at Bob Evan's. Daddy left for New York and Uncle Joe and Pop went to graduation at Depauw. It was a beautiful warm sunny day and perfect weather to play outside. We played out for a long time and enjoyed the fresh air. The boys set up a baseball store on the driveway. Baylor was selling all things baseball along with cold drinks. I must say Coop was kind of confused with the store idea which was quite confusing for Baylor. Little brothers seem to always mess things up when they are set up just perfectly! Our favorite saying right now is "patience is a virtue". Let's just say we are working on it!
