Joshua turned 14! We had a big party and, on the surface at least, it seemed to be his first ever birthday celebration. He needed some help blowing out the candles and was pretty cautious and sloooow in unwrapping the gifts. Some were overheard saying, "I wonder what this present is? Perhaps we will know by tomorrow..." Others: "Ten years later..."
The party was extremely festive and we were blessed to have all 14 children home at once, Matthew having recently returned from South Africa.
