Little Man...isn't so little anymore

 Wow. Just can't believe it.

We had Gus' 6th birthday party ON his actual birthday this year, with lots of cousins and his best friends from next door.  Lego craziness happened.

Our big purchase for him this year was a tag-along bike that attaches to Scott's bike to create a kind of tandem.  He is loving it...even working on pushing Scott along himself!


Gus is still my enthusiastic, passionate boy.  He is fascinated with all things tiny, mechanical or old-fashioned.  He loves to swim and drink anything through a straw.  He spends his days building lego cities, painting anything that needs a touch-up, and collecting rocks & insects.  He likes to tease his sister, but also loves to make her laugh.  Most of all, he is a keen observer and finder of all sorts of unusual things which will be forever preserved in his many collections.  

We love you, Gus-man.  Hope you have a wonderful time being 6!

Insulation has begun!

It's gonna be a lot of work, but it's happening!  
Pray for us (especially Scott) as we labor on this for the next several weeks.
