"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Face painting

Last night we had a BBQ here at the Hospice with people from the "Hope Group" - families with children who have a shortened life diagnosis/special needs.  The food was amazing (BBQ'd ribs, salads, etc..) and so were the people we met.  Brave, beautiful people.  One family told us they had literally lived at the Hospital for the past three years with their daughter.  Tough stories.  After the food, there were activities and someone did face painting for the kids.  I just had to share them with you.

How precious! Abigail's eyes look huge. They all look absolutely adorable. The face painters did a good job.

It's amazing how much Rachel is starting to look like her siblings (which actually shouldn't be surprising since she is your child!) I can almost hear Ethan saying (in a voice that sounds like Dave's) "I am Batman." Ha!
