A tale of two birthdays

We're celebrating two birthdays this week at the Euphrony Homey. First is the lovely Little Euphrony, who is now five years old. I blinked and here we were, watching her dance recital, seeing her compete on swim team, flying through preschool graduation, and celebrating our not-so-little girl.

Birthday Girl (Oh, yeah, those are fresh blueberries and strawberries on her cheese pizza. This from the girl who at McDonald's mixes the ranch dressing for her chicken nuggets with the caramel for her apple slices.)

Birthday #2 is for the newest and oldest child in our family. Brenda, a girl who lives in Uganda, just joined our family two weeks ago and turned six this week. She is the child we sponsor through Compassion. Sadly, she is actually a replacement (of sorts). We were sponsoring a girl in Brazil, but the project through which she was helped was non-cooperative with Compassion and they were forced to cease operations with them. So please pray for Syng, that she continues to find help now that we are no long in touch and helping her; and pray for Brenda as we get to know her better.

Happy Birthday, Girls!

I'd like to say that it was planned that way - so I will. We did that intentionally.
