They are never easy.

This sweet baby girl is a part of us.

They love each other.

We would take her in as our own. Josiah will marry her.

Oh, Trippy.

My clone.
(Not in looks. She has much better legs than I. :))

It's not very often that you find a couple who both you and your spouse are so close to.

Last hugs

Isaac had a hard time watching the P. family drive off. They are pretty special to all of us.

We are planning a wedding for MB and Isaac, as well. They don't know it yet, but it will take place in Dallas after they finish college at SMU. Now we just need a fellow for Olivia.
Also, these girls took in our beloved Mr. Bellumnus (goldfish of 3 years) and named him JOI, after all of our kids' first initials. And I think they deemed Mr. a Miss.

Oh, Jen. Seriously, one of the best story tellers ever.

Some of my sweet Bible study gals.

The kids were getting a few hugs after a long day of packing.

We had to say "goodbye" to one of our many amazing babysitters. Thanks, Emily, for loving on our kids.

Packed and ready to go!


  1. Aww...poor Isaac!!! Hopefully he'll make some new friends soon, not that they'll replace his old ones but it will help with the adjustment period!!!

  2. Sweet sweet friends! Lots of memories. Olivia, love you picture in the box :-)

  3. I'm so glad Miss Olivia got unpacked! It's always so hard leaving good friends. I hope they get to come visit you soon!

  4. Oh how Emily is going to love seeing that pic, though it might make her cry again. Have to tell you that the drive home that night was very somber :0( Secretly I believe she's praying for an internship in Dallas LOL
    So glad you have this up so we can peek into your lives.
    Love and Miss you all
    Bren and crew
