Our first teenager....

That's right everyone, our baby girl turned 13 on March 18th.  
Rachel, you have been such a blessing to our lives since the very beginning.  We are constantly amazed at your servant heart and your willingness to listen and obey to not only us but also to the Lord.  We love you and are very proud of you and are excited about what God has in store for your future!!

For 6-7 years now, we have made a birthday banner for each birthday.  Then we hang it where they will see it when they first wake up and come into the living area.  They're very simple and we've used the exact same paint/marker set since we first started it, but the kids seem to love it.

Here is a collage of some pictures I came up with in remembrance of Rachel's birth.

"Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity and spirit, in faith and in purity."
1 Timothy 4:12
