Our precious daughter has turned 18! As much as I have enjoyed every step of our children's childhood, having a teenaged daughter who has such a beautiful heart is a special joy.
When the kids turn 18, they get to pick any type of cake they want. Shae-Lynn chose the chocolate lasagna cake I had for my last birthday. It is so good and rich!
We had a great time celebrating with two other missionary families with food, fun, and fellowship.
A couple of months ago, Shae-Lynn had stumbled across some Short Best Friend / Tall Best Friend shirts on Amazon. She sent the photo to her tall friend Abby, saying that it describes them so well. Abby's family took the photo down to our local t-shirt imprinter, and he was able to replicate it exactly. Shae-Lynn's gifts reflected her love for coffee, coconut, and photography.
We are so thankful for each of our children and look forward to seeing how God uses them in the future in His service.
