The boys are back!

It has been way too quiet at our place for the past few weeks! Our boys went to visit their extended families while they were on break from school. There were only away a for a few weeks, but it seemed like forever to Julia and I! We missed them.

These are truly a great group of guys. Each one of them has a special, unique quality and they all have fun personalities.

Patrick is quiet. Very quiet. He looks and laughs a lot, though! He is very mature, funny, and focussed. He is the oldest of the boys, and he is definitely the quiet leader. It is encouraging to see how the younger boys respect him in such a positive way. I love Patrick and can't wait to see how the Lord uses him and his gentle, but strong character in the future.

Maina is our resident dog whisperer. Maina also has the biggest heart of any kid I know. He is the one tries to make sure that everyone is happy and taken care of. If anything needs to be done, Maina volunteers and steps up to do anything. He is truly a special guy.

Freddy is the funny guy. He is the one who is usually dancing around, acting silly, and then gets super embarrassed when he sees me watching him. He loves to play with Julia and is so very good with her. Besides playing football (soccer), Freddy's favorite thing to do around the compound is to wash the cars. I think it is his excuse to get to play with water.

Collins is the baby of the group. He is the typical baby of the family, in almost every way. He does not like the older boys to boss him around, but he also likes to play the "I don't know how" card when it works for him. He loves to play. He is a great student and works very hard in school.

We love these guys. They are Julia's big brothers. I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for our boys' ministry in the next few months and years, not only with these guys, but the ones that God will bring us in the future. Andy & Ginny will be here in less than two months and we can't wait to have them!!!
