Rolling Rolling Rolling


This sweet girl has been bugging me daily for a bike ride...

We got rained out recently and when I walked in from work today I was greeted with her gigantic smile and this question:

"Is today rain check day?"
Indeed it was!


I cherish these rides - i love just chatting and cruising and seeing her smile!


And she's never not goofy!


She must have thanked me 55 times and told me how fun it was over and over and over...

I absolutely love riding with her!

Trust me Meron - this ride meant even more to daddy!

Two Teeth Lighter


I know we shared that Z-Dogg had lost a tooth recently - but here he is feeling pretty darn special because...

HE LOST A SECOND ONE!


Yep - we got us a gap tooth 5 year old these days!

He was so worried about it falling out because:

"Daddy - what if all my food squishes out through there...?"
No worries Zechie... i think you'll be safe!


He's growing up quick this goofy one... and his lack of teeth is proving it!

Good luck eating and talking Z-Dogg!

Waiting For Daddy!


When I pulled in from running this evening - I came home to these two cuties roaming the street...


Laura told me that Meron said:

"We're going to go outside and wait for Daddy..."
And she had been patiently waiting out there for 30 minutes!


I love these two together... and I love how much they love each other too!

They keep me smiling!


And I know Cider loves Meron a LOT because she tolerates Meron's head lock kisses pretty darn regularly!


Girls... you are a couple of gorgeous creations of God and I love ya!

Stay hairy, furry and awesome!

She's a Connector...


So - I know I don't celebrate this gorgeous girl near enough on this blog... but today as we celebrate two years since she went under the knife to remove some cancer that God decided to remove before the surgeons got in there - I figured it was a great time to big up my very best friend!


This girl right here is a bona fide connector.

What do you mean by that, Tymm?

It's easy... she connects things. People, places, things...

I've seen her bring friendships together between others that have lasted...

I've watched her advocate hard for adoption and bring children to their families...

I've witnessed her fight relentlessly for sponsorship for 200+ kids at a school in Ethiopia...

I've even watched her pour her heart and soul into building ministries - holding hands and walking people through doors and making introductions to establish organizations - only to have the doors slammed in her face...

Yet... she keeps on giving and connecting!

It's like her heart knows no other way!


This girl is sooooo willing to jump with me... into any and everything!


And she ALWAYS has my back.

She loves others and honors God while doing it like nobody else I have ever met.


And when it comes to her crew... she is relentless with her love.

You just ask any member of our camp!

Laura... you love others so well. Even when it means hurt for you. You connect and reconnect and give and support in such an amazing way.

I am beyond thankful that these last 2 years were here for us... painful at times but all about HIM the whole time!

I want to be like you when I grow up!

Thank you God for this mommy, wife, best friend and connector!

When Meron's Away...


... the siblings will play!

Meron is off on her second ever sleep over tonight... and while the dynamic around here is always different with the second "mom" out of the house, these two were getting along great!


Zechie begged and begged to be allowed to sleep in Meron's bed with Mebbie tonight and we caved in...


And while I know they're missing their bigger sis...

These two are enjoying each other right now!

Stay goofy you two... STAY GOOFY!
