Growing too fast!

OK- can I just say that I want time to stand still for a bit? Our Ava was 8 on Wednesday and while I am thankful for the years God has allowed us to have her, they are just going by too fast! Ava is such a beautiful, even-keeled, spirit. She is so ready to go with the flow and really takes time to let things sink in. At a party with kids and grown-ups, she loves to hang with us old folks.

Last week after getting our teeth cleaned, she said "Now, I either want to be a teacher or clean teeth!" Thought that was so cute, as she has wanted to be a teacher since she was 4. My kids love going to he dentist- only because they get a new toothbrush, toothpaste and a pencil. Thankfully, none of them have had any cavities yet, but if/when that time comes around, they may change their tune a bit.

My precious Ava- Mom and Dad are so incredibly proud of the young lady God has led you to be. We pray for you to continue to grow in His grace, love him with your whole heart and serve him with gladness.
