awe, sorry finn. the balloon drop must have been for the 5th grade graduation.
the first day of school i met zack and sarah (not to be confused with zak and sara, but also i still like to sing the song to them). sarah. the beautiful redhead, has become one of my best buds. during some of the most difficult events of her life i was privileged to be her sister and friend. she has been coming with me to church for many months now and i can't even tell you the difference it is making in her life. some day i will write a post all about sarah. he has three kiddos, one boy in ossi's class, a daughter pictured above with finn, and a new baby girl. she and zack are going to marry soon. i love them all. every time i walk into church the kids yell "MAYDEN"on the top of their lungs. it makes me feel so good.
this is dimi. ossi accidentally called her "my dimi" so we tease him about it like crazy. when he was aladdin last halloween we showed up to a party and saw dimi dressed as jasmin. lightbulb, little sneak. he has a lot to learn before he's ready to date though, for instance: share your coat with a cold girl. in our family we have a rule that there is no dating until age 16. and when the kids are 16 they need to go on group dates with a variety of people and not pair off or have "girlfriends" or "boyfriends" until they have graduated from high school. i'm so excited for the teenage years.
ossi's teacher and the school principle...
so, when we got home finn and evy needed naps. while i was laying them down ossi ducked in to the kitchen and prepared little snacks for them. i love that when he is on top of the world he wants everyone else to feel just as happy.
