I love this book! I don't know how a silly (non christian) children's book can be so full of truth, but it is. I wonder if my Grandma Rayanne, who gave me this book for my high school graduation, realized that when she gave it to me. Oh the places I've been since high school; it's crazy how just a few years can change a person so much, good or bad, but in my case I think the changes were good.
This was one of the few books that I took to the hospital to read to Gideon. When I would read this book to him I would wonder about all the places he would go. I never thought Heaven would be one of his first destinations; although as a christian mommy I prayed it would be his last. I'm sure Gideon didn't mind that it was first on his list!
Now as I read this book to Jericho I wonder about all the places she will go. When I was pregnant with her, Seth felt like the Lord told him that Jericho would, "Go to the nations." So, I guess we need to start preparing ourselves for her to be away from us. Seth already got a chance to practice as Jericho and I went to Chicago, the first of many places she will go. While we were in Chicago we visited a few different people but first on the list were the Goodson's and that is what the slide show below is of. Next up (hopefully I'll get to them tomorrow) is the DeWulf's and then the Truesdale's.
Oh the pictures of the kids in white was our attempt at "Putting Olen Mills out of business" as my mother in law put it. We were planning on taking the kids to get their pictures done professionally but it didn't work out. It's a long story and was frustrating enough the first time around that I'm not going to go into detail. Anyways, I think we did a pretty good job of getting some pictures ourselves, who needs professionals.
