Jack reading to Anna & Bela pictures

Anna and Bela are so good with Jack. On Saturday we needed a break before lunch from all the business of paperwork and house we headed over to the houses. It is still snowy outside, so we kept Jack indoors. Anna and Bela are always so good about giving him attention, whether its kicking around the soccer ball, reading with him, making him laugh, chasing him around the tables, and just making him feel special. They are precious to me and I am thankful they love my little man so much!

My new buddy

WE HAD A PLAYDATE....FINALLY! We are with teenagers all the time, which is wonderful. But, it was so, so nice to have another little guy over to play. I met Evelyn and Joshua at the park in the fall. I was running after Jack and I noticed she spoke English...yeah! She and her family are from Switzerland and are involved in planting home churches with gypsy groups in our town. She and her son are precious and we are thankful to have them in our lives. She is having baby #2 in June here in Romania, wow! I am so impressed with her courage and trust! I am thankful to our precious Lord for bringing us and our boys together.
Hey - are you little too!

So big!

 These days Jack is always wanting to be sooo big! He says and tries to do everything we do. In the car he will be really quiet and the shout out "come on dude," "hey jen," or even my favorite "oh man!" after Jeff says it. It cracks us up every time, but also wakes us up to be even more aware of what we say, how we respond, our attitude and our actions. At home, he loves to put on our shoes, wear our clothes (from underwear to our socks!), help us cook and even clean. His favorite thing to do is to turn off the vacuum while I'm using it and then do it himself! I still can't believe God trusted us with this little man to raise, shephard, teach and guide into a godly man himself! What a blessing you are to us, Jack!
