You may be asking yourself how exactly does one celebrate a 6 month birthday. Well here is a little snapshot of how we celebrated Joel's big day.
We woke up early and began teaching Joel how to be a servant for Jesus, also known as helping out daddy with his work on campus. We spent a few hours cleaning and sprucing up the CSC, enjoyed lunch with some students and worked at Faith Fest talking with incoming freshman about the ministry. We already love making Joel a part of something that means so much to us and we think the students like him being around as well! Most of them anyway.
Joel celebrated his birthday by getting to have 2 servings of his new favorite food - beets mixed with sweet potatoes. He LOVES them! After we just hung out until bedtime. We had a mini photo session, a warm bath and family Bible Study before tucking him in for the night around 8pm. His present to us was waking only once at 4:30am! Thanks little buddy. His gift to himself, learning to suck his toes. He seems to enjoy it a LOT.
Here are some pictures of our month with Joel. Enjoy!
