These two have formed a solid brotherly relationship. John has confided his past in Michael, which shows the trust John has in Michael. It was poignant to hear that Michael cried when he heard of the hard things that John has gone through. Tender hearts, for sure.
Our weekly trip to ALDI.
Michael ensures that we eat shopska salad at least once a week. And he insists upon making it, himself!
John had an optometry appointment. We have ordered him some glasses.
This boy is serious about his posing.
My kids love to swim!
Michael had a Bulgarian translator attend his optometry appointment. I didn't even know that was a possibility for their medical appointments.
Sarah found our stash of barbies!
These boys got some new jeans. Michael likes the shredded look.
Because of John's past, I believe that he wants to flex his muscles to exhibit strength. It is sad to hear of the things he has gone through in his short 14 years on the earth. I know that those experiences can make him stronger and empathetic to others.
Anna has stepped up to helping her siblings to learn karate in her class. All three of the triplets attend with Anna.
We have quite the tomato harvest! And the tomatoes keep coming...
An hour before Michael left for a scout campout, he was figuring out his new pocketknife and he sliced his thumb! Thank goodness for super glue!
My three scouts!
Michael's self portrait on his vitamin pill box.
With the boys gone, we had a girl's night in! I braided Sarah's hair, we painted nails, ate cookies, and watched FROZEN.
This is Silas' drawing of Tyler and me.
Recent temple trip. We love the youth in our ward!
Anna loves Barkley Boo!
A rare photo of John when he was younger. Isn't he adorable?! I love those cheeks.
Michael knows how to melt my heart. Tyler asked me this week is Michael is "for real" or not. Seriously.
Calvin made this at scout day camp. He is so proud of it and I love having it on the table. With ten people, we need some napkins.
John helped me finish up the snickerdoodles. He did a great job! Добра работа!
