Layla Turns Six!

Layla turned six this year. At six, Layla is sweet, spunky and smart as a whip. This girl doesn’t miss a beat and is always trying to either keep up with her brothers or herd them! We are so thankful for this little girl, who rounds out our family perfectly.

Last night as a five-year-old

We celebrated with a gymnastics party and it was a hit! Layla wants to be a gymnastics teacher when she grown up.

Nicole’s High School Graduation

Our niece, Nicole, graduated with honors from high school in June and is WWU bound. We couldn’t be more proud of the beautiful, smart woman she’s become. Way to go, Nicole! Can’t wait to see what you do!




The day before we headed to Pullman, we found out Manivanh tested positive for Covid. Sadly, this left her out of much of the festivities they’d all been looking forward to for a long time. Kieron, Grammy and Papa, and I headed east that day. The next morning, Jonathan tested positive, which meant he couldn’t drive over with Avery, Silas & Layla. It was pretty disappointing the wrench Covid threw in this event, but we made the most of it.

At Nicole’s graduation party, the following day




We went to Nicole’s track banquet while Scott and Manivanh prepared for the graduation party. Nicole was constantly being recognized on stage, as a team captain, MVP, scholar athlete, and so on. I can tell her team will miss her.

Kieron Turns Twelve

Kieron turned twelve in May. At twelve, Kieron is still as sweet and sensitive as ever, and he still wants to be a chef or own a restaurant. For his birthday, he really wanted to make sushi for us. It turned out delicious! We love you so much, little chef!

This boy loves Aahar!

For his birthday, Kieron took a few friends to a movie and then they came back to the house to celebrate. Here he is with Liam, Ethan, Alex and Seth.
