I found several pic's when looking through, and thought I would put them all in, just for fun! =) I have noted, though, that we are due for some nice individual pictures of the girls, and will hopefully get some done when my folks arrive in a couple weeks. Family ones updated when Baby Bean arrives!
A few pictures of all four girls: Last summer

Mika-girl, you are growing into a beautiful young lady already! You are a great blessing to our family, and we are so very thankful for you! We appreciate your willingness to help around the house, to play with and take care of your sisters, and to help others, among other things. I love to see you reading your Bible in the morning, and how you take time to memorize verses. We pray that this will continue, and that you will grow to know and love the Lord more than anything or anyone else!
Here is a verse I'd like you to remember: "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you." (Psalms 32:8) Without a doubt, we know the Lord can be trusted. That doesn't mean our path in life will always be easy, but we know we can depend on God's Word to show us the way we are to go. If we listen, He will instruct us - or, be our Teacher. He's the best Teacher, because He never makes any mistakes! This verse also says that He has His "eye upon you." That means He is watching over you, that He cares for you, and that you are important to Him! It's a wonderful thing to know!
Have a very Happy 8th Birthday, sweet Marika! We love you SO much!
