High Point, Little Point...

Every night at home, we go around the room and share our daily "high point", "low point" and "prayer request", and then we say The Lord's Prayer. We also do this at Cousin's Camp.

Our son Malcolm, has said, "My LITTLE point" instead of "My LOW point" for the longest time... Well tonight, I attempted to trip him up by saying.. When it was my turn, "My LITTLE point is..." and he interrupted me to say, "IT'S LOW!!!" and was followed by robust echoes of laughter from all the siblings and grandparents and cousins gathered at Cousin's Camp this week.

Thank you, Malcolm for such an awesome moment!

And thanks to Mrs. Claire for teaching Aiden, who is only three and has epilepsy and CP, how to ride a horse! These are my "HIGH POINTS!!!" for the week so far!

Talk to you soon,

Paulk Bunch News Update...

Well summer is here and is well under way. The kids are going to all be descending on my parents house this weekend for the annual Morgan Cousins Camp. Its going to be different this year because there are four new cousins. The dynamic is most certainly going to be different to say the least.

The other few tidbits of news we have are....

My dad has prostate cancer. I am worried about him, but realize that it is likely that his is very common and likely quite treatable because they caught it early. He has been very proactive with his health the last few years, and that will hopefully pay off.

The kids are all doing well right now and though they are all still getting used to being "blended", I think it's going well. They are also healthy! Aiden and Sophie have both been cleared for SIX MONTHS!

As far as Adam and I go, I do not know if I could be much happier than I am right now. He is my soul mate in every way, and we are so blessed to have found each other. I don't think either of us really knew what real connection could feel like before now. I am so thankful that God put us together!

and... Last but not least... We are selling our house! Hopefully we will close next week. We are so excited about moving into a home that will be closer to our church and friends and not to mention better schools for the kiddos!

It's an exciting time to be a part of the Paulk Bunch!!!
