Summertime.....and the birthdays are plentiful!
You know, it seemed like a good idea at the time--all summer babies. Wouldn't that be nice? No bundling them up in the cold Grand Rapids winters, no dragging them through the snow to the grocery store, sleeping through the night by Thanksgiving. So, we planned carefully (that won't surprise any of you that know me well) and executed our plan almost flawlessly: two Julys, an August, and a September. The maternity clothes worked, the baby clothes worked, especially since God blessed us with two beautiful girls and then two beautiful boys.......oh............but I forgot one thing. Birthdays!!!! Just when I think we can slow down a bit and enjoy the summer, all the birthdays come! I must admit, I might do it differently if I had it to do over but I wouldn't trade any of them for anything in the world. Well.....maybe a few extra dollars to spend on all those birthdays??? Nah---not even that! Happy summer Birthdays Brooke, Sydney, Payton, and Sawyer.
