On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Big Leg Brady and Happy Feet Noah

This past weekend we hit the road to enjoy a play date with two of our favorite boys.

A phone call early on the day we left was from Noah excitedly asking us to please, please pick them up at school that day. We made sure to arrive in time to do just that! The joy of seeing their faces light up when they see us is something that will always tug on my heartstrings. We went straight to the cinema 8 to take in the movie they had so looked forward to: Monsters University! Loaded up with Slurpees, popcorn, and candy (bad Nonnie), we sat through the world of some silly monsters working hard on their techniques to scare helpless little children. What a plot for a kid movie! Crazy.

After that we went home to play and be with the boys while Mom and Dad went out for an evening alone in celebration of their anniversary. It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since their wedding.

We knew they would be and have a beautiful family.
But who knew their kids would be so much fun, smart, talented, etc.??
(I'm sorry - I just can't help myself.)

We watched the boys practice their soccer moves on the driveway.

Every time they miss an opportunity to score or block,
the discipline is to get down on the ground for some push ups!

So cute!
Love these two.
Usually when we visit them, a big treat for them each morning
is for Papa to go out for donuts.
However, while they are "in training" and playing sports,
Daddy has them eating a more healthy breakfast.
(They did manage to have a couple of donut holes after breakfast.)
We watched their team, Cool Runnings, play soccer on Saturday morning.
"Big Leg" Brady scored 5 points.
"Happy Feet" Noah scored 1 for the team.
(The nicknames were given by the coach!)
All of the boys played great and Cool Runnings hasn't lost a game this season.
(I was very impressed that parents on both teams displayed
great sportsmanship from the sidelines.)

By the way, the kids were excited to tell us the good news.
There will be a new addition to their family!


His name is Porter. :-)

How fun and how cute all at once! Congrats to the boys and their soccer team. I love soccer and our kiddos played when they were little. They do grow fast don't they? And now a new cutie to look forward too! Congrats to everyone in the family! You have a beautiful group of kids and grands!
