Happy Birthday Joshua!

Our precious and oldest grandson, Joshua is seven! I can well remember the day he was born. We were living and working in Guinea, West Africa and got the message via satellite phone (no cell phone reception in West Africa in 2006!) that John and Debbie had had son, brother to our precious first born grandchild, three-year-old Eryn.

Today Joshua is a [young] man of few words yet has grown in leaps and bounds in his school work with mom Debbie teaching the children at home in Mozambique. While we visited with them in the Drakensberg last month, I heard Joshua reading to his younger sister, Bethany and brother, Elijah. He is word-perfect!   

Joshua also has a very generous nature and even at this young age, is so considerate of his older sister, Eryn, and three younger siblings. 

Any task Joshua is given, is done with concentration and great seriousness!

Isn't he just the cutest little boy?

  We love you dearly!
