and she's 6!

it is hard to believe our first-born is six this week.  I can't help but post a whole bunch of pictures of how she has grown.  she is a joy and a gift in so many ways, with an eagerness to understand people, a love for the creative, and a willingness to adventure with her brothers.  she loves to talk and loves beauty.  today we celebrated with some of her sweet friends at our very, very generous neighbor's pool (sidenote: pool parties are pretty easy and everyone was exhausted at the end).  we thank God for this precious girl and pray that she would walk with Him always, that He would give us the grace to fulfill our calling as parents.

here she is right after she made us parents.
she was a delightful toddler

her first wedding
they have the same eyes and such a sweet relationship
