Happy Birthday Josiah!

 Josiah turns 12 today!  Doesn't it seem like each year goes faster than the last?  Time is a crazy thing.  

Speaking of time...we have less than one week left in the US.  How is it that the six months leading up to furlough go so slow and the six months of furlough go so fast?!  We have truly been blessed with an AWESOME time.  I'll have to share more photos from furlough once we get back to Ecuador.  It seems I have more time to be on the computer there.

Back to Josiah...a friend of ours has said that each passing year with his kids gets better and better.  That is so true.  We enjoy our kids more and more and are amazed at their character, in spite of us!  Josiah has really matured and become much more responsible in the last six months.  We are so proud of the boy he is becoming and although we hate to see him grow up, it's so neat to see him change and become his own person.  

We love you buddy!
