Happy Father's Day - Arville

Just wanted to take this opportunity to wish
Arville a Happy Father's Day.

AND to say thank you for letting me
use you as my model for many of my photography
classes this year.

You are a real trooper.

Happy Father's Day
I love you.

John, Mike and Arville visiting outside the school building.

These two photos were taken last week-
in the village of Harachina when the team
from FBC, Abilene, were here and
at the kindergarten when I made
yearbook photos for the children.

Today is our younger granddaughter's


She is 6 years old today.

Happy Birthday, Sophie.

We love you so much.

Here is a collage of previous years.

  Sophie is so funny, so witty, and quite the comedian.
She is the delight of her family.
Other pictures of Sophie:

And this is a picture that Sophie drew for me some time ago.
I have it on my refrigerator door in Skopje. 
It makes me happy when I see it!!
Thank you, Sophie!
And Happy Birthday from your

Happy Birthday, Nathan

Nathan will be 4 years old tomorrow --
June 3rd,
but no one is to tell him because he thinks he will be
SIX !!!

He says that he doesn't like the numbers 3 and 4 anymore
so he is just skipping over 5 too and going right to the age
he wants to be!! 

We think it could be because his sister will be six
in just a few more days.

Whatever age you think you are, Nathan,
the important thing is to enjoy your birthday and
have a very Happy Day!!!

Nathan, this poem reminded me so much of you.


Micschievous Grins
Author: Unknown

Little boys come in all shapes and sizes,
Shy and adventurous, full of surprises,
With misshapen halos and mischievous grins,
Small dirty faces, and sweet, sticky chins.
They'll keep you so busy, and yet all the while,
Nothing can brighten the world like (Nathan's) smile.

Have a Wonderful Brithday - whatever age you are.


Nathan likes everything CARS --
but he especially loves to read car magazines.

Look at how much he has grown in the past 2 years:

And here he is with his GIRLS (fan club):

We love you,
Baba and Peepaw
