Happy Birthday Chase

Happy Birthday Chase! My youngest turned 15 yesterday. We went to visit my oldest son at college. We went to church, then out to eat at Olive Garden ( you can't beat that all you can eat soup, salad, and breadsticks with 3 teenage boys!!). I cannot believe my baby is 15. I love being a wife and mother! God has entrusted these boys to my husband and myself and we pray for wisdom and guidance in raising them to God's glory. Each child is so different, which makes parenting very "on the edge" enjoyable! I have so enjoyed each of my boy's differences, learning their interests, likes and dislikes, and trying to learn just what makes each of them tick! It is never dull or boring, I can say that. We have extremely wonderful days and sometimes extremely difficult days. I don't see how anyone could parent without God. Raising your children will definitely bring you to your knees in prayer. I am looking forward to experiencing what God has in store for us with our boys! But, for this birthday boy, I want to say WE LOVE YOU!!! Okay, this is the cake that my middle son, who is 16, made for Chase. Note the abundance of chocolate chips! Gotta love that creativity:)
I just wanted to put this picture in of one of the trees in the battlefield park. The leaves are just starting to turn and they are awesome! I hope to put more pictures on Wednesday of the beautiful changing of the leaves.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Happy Birthday, Chase. I am feeling quiet old now, Kim. Thanks!
The trip to Emory this weekend went well. I was surprised by some of the things happening on the campus. (Not in a good way either.) Emory has a lot going for it, but I think one must be strong in their faith before they go.

I just came across your blog. I have enjoyed reading it, especially the parenting part. I agree with you in so many ways. I'm thankful also that God has entrusted my kids to my husband and myself and we pray for wisdom and guidance in raising them to God's glory every single day too! I definitely agree that I wouldn't want to parent without God's guidance and I sure don't know how people do it that don't have that in their lives.

Thanks for the enjoyable read. I plan to check back often and see what your family is up to. =]
