Isn't that a cool date to write? And what's even cooler is that at 4:35 AM this morning, Amarin turned 10 years old. Yes, double digits. He was so excited, though he kind of wishes he was turning 11 today...just to have fun with the numbers. I said NO! You're growing up fast enough!

Sleepy morning eyes. C'mon, mom, I'm not awake yet!

Charlie explained his picture that he made for him.

Amarin has been wanting a "real" Bible, because he's almost done with his story Bible. He took it with him in the van and kept asking me for Bible verses to look up. His story Bible doesn't have chapter and verse numbers like this one. He said he could take this one to church to follow what the pastor was reading. And this was the only book he wanted for his rest time today. I'm so glad he enjoys the adventures!

Anther bionicle from Jacob. Can't have too many of these guys, huh?

Laura kept walking in front of my lens...look at me, mom!

And finally, he has his own MP3.

Amarin wanted to go to the Rainforest Cafe today. One of his little siblings did not want to go for fear of the animals, but had no choice. The other didn't know what it was all about.

We sat down before any noise started and all was well...

until the noise started. Jenna had tears, Charlie had big eyes, Laura was grabbing me during the thunderstorm, but after a little reassurance and glances at other kids that weren't freaking out, they decided they were going to eat lunch, and not BE lunch. Nervous Nellies watching the gorillas!

He's now just three years younger than Penny was when we brought her home. That was just three years ago. They do grow up too fast. It won't be long and she'll be graduating from high school. What a blessing our children are! Happy Birthday to Amarin!
