Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

Science done

We are working extra hard to get school finished before baby Z6's due date and Serene was the first to finish a book. She completed her science book and now has a just a few more pages in her other subjects to complete her year. This sweet baby is gonna be a 2nd grader.... 
Time is flying by. 

Sister love

It's moments like these that my heart is so full it could burst. Watching my 9 year old on the floor playing tea party with her not quite 2 year old sister. Patience thinks Anna and Serene are about the two greatest people on the planet and it makes her day when they want to play with her. Sometimes she is locked out of the girls room when they want peace and quiet to read or talk but they still dearly love this little girl and she feels it. I'm overwhelmed at how blessed I am to have these five kids!

Mommy party

Yesterday my kiddos spent all day upstairs working, working working telling me they had a big surprise and to not come up. They also asked if I would help them make a cake. We did make a yummy chocolate brownie cake and has it ready for after dinner. 

Turns out my precious kiddos were planning a party for me. A party just to celebrate "the best mom ever" they said. They had each made cards, they worked hard on precious homemade decorations and even got all dressed up in their best clothes. 

My heart is so full right now. As a mom sometimes you feel like the hard work goes unnoticed but my sweet kids do care so much and their love is so very unconditional. I adore these little people and the life we spend together!! Come to find out, this entire thing was my four year old little boys idea. He said "you the best mom ever and I wanna have special party for you"....

I'm just amazed at their little hearts, full of love, so giving and caring... I'm so happy to be their mommy!!
