Here’s a snapshot of what life would look like in our family:
• Being hugged, kissed (and possibly tackled) multiple times a day by his/her two older brothers, Eli (4) and Matti (2)
• Reading books and Bible stories together on our bright yellow rocker in the nursery
• Chanting our “Hooray!” song at the top of our lungs for each other
• Riding scooters and bikes around the block over and over again
• Learning to waterski, adventure car rides after dinner, and family sports matches.
• Learning scripture together and praying with and for one another
• Building forts, devouring waffles with almond butter and berries on Saturday mornings, and playing with neighborhood buddies everyday after naps until the sun goes down.
• Taking family vacations to the beach, the mountains, and our family’s lakehouse in Wisconsin.
• And much more…
