Yesterday we celebrated another birthday. Our dear Audrey turned 13, making us the parents of two teen-aged young ladies. And what a pleasure it is to watch them grow into caring, hard-working, and creative people who love the Lord and seek to please Him in all they do! At the same time, we look and see how much more we want them to know before they are old enough to begin their own households, in just a few short years.
Audrey, AnnaMarie, and Tasha helped a friend prepare to move after Audrey opened her presents yesterday, and when we went to pick them up we stopped at a beautiful community garden nearby.
Later in the afternoon we went to our favorite nature area, where Audrey tried out her new binoculars~
(She was excited to spot these cowbirds there)
