In one day, the boys will turn ONE.
In four days, we will have our super hero themed birthday party!
In between now and then there are a few to-dos. Between the two nights we’ll have somewhere between 16 to 20 overnight guests. (Holy slumber party!) K is so excited he can hardly contain himself. He can’t wait for his friends and cousins to see his new house, his swing set, and come be superheroes. The twins are getting geared up as well. N has decided to do one year old things, like get a couple of TEETH! L is practicing his smile for the photos.
I’ve spent roughly the last 8 years (8 days) of my life making two tiny super hero capes. If you could have accomplished that in mere minutes it’s best you keep that to yourself. I may not have time to clean, get groceries, decorate, or prep for the party…but I WILL finish these capes. Then we’ll all sit around and look at them. (Not touching them of course, lest they fall apart.)
In between now and then, I encourage you to participate in the hero challenge! I’m gathering up the stories and gestures, and they have been so much fun to read! You all are amazing.
These are things I do most weeks:
Help in the church office Tuesday afternoons 12 to 3:20.
Help with our Angel Choir (ages 4 – 7) Tuesday 3:30 to 4:15.
Volunteer at UK Hospital Wed afternoons 1:00 to 4:00.
This fall have been helping find workers for the KCA Conference.
Help with 2 of our grandchildren because mom just got a job.
I really haven’t had time to do anything extra.

My hero story is you and your family! You are a true hero in my book! My good deed was I spent the day with my mom, just listening and talking about how important family is, and you shouldn’t take it lightly. I listened to her about hand sewing me a quilt at the age of 81. She is my hero too!

I found your blog through a friend who posted it on Facebook last winter. I started following along for a while and then to my surprise I realized that I went to engineering school with your husband and his brother. Although I mostly had classes with his brother. I am constantly amazed by your actions and grace through every challenge you face. What a special idea to honor the twins for their birthday. To honor your boys and my connection to your family I will be volunteering for Project Lead the Way at a local high school, a program that promotes careers in science, technology, engineering and math. You all will continue to be in my prayers.
My hero challenge is simple and routine. I get up every day and try to armour myself with the strength and courage to do what is right, love those around me, and be the child of Christ I was called to be. Most days I fail miserably, but because of the cross each day is a new day. Living our lives in the moment, helping others, and enjoying the gifts and blessings provided to us is how I see most heros.
Happy Birthday, L and N!!! You are loved.
