I told you that we had an exciting birthday planned for Rachel and Jubilee this year, but it was a surprise. Thursday night we went to the lake to BBQ and have dessert for Rachel's birthday. The celebration was really just a decoy so that Rachel would not know what we were planning for Friday!
This month is our big birthday month! Noah and Korpu start off the month on the 19th, Jordan on the 22nd, Jonathan on the 23rd, Rachel on the 31 and Jubilee will celebrate her first birthday on the 2nd of August.
A few years ago my older boys had a lawn care business. They ran the business for one year and did very well. They learned to deal with customers, even not so nice ones. They learned to work hard, go after new accounts and deal with people. Andrew worked with the boys on the weekends and in the evenings and many days I drove them and waited in the car while they worked.
Korpu turned 8 years old last week. It is amazing to see the beautiful young lady she is growing into. She came to us at age 6, barely able to talk, struggling to understand even simple instruction and very malnourished. Two years later and she is making huge strides!
