Happy 10th Birthday Joshua

He has made it... He is in double digits. As he is my youngest I am feeling a little sad but also am very proud of him. He has come such a long way in the last twelve months. Amazing how quickly kids grow up. He has settled into country life beautifully and will get even more settled as we stay here longer.

He is making some lovely friends around here and these friendships will only grow stronger as they spend weekends together and have lots of fun discovering the local creek or just riding around the place. I love it that he loves to get on his bike and just ride. Be out for the day and come home hungry and dirty. I love it... This is how I grew up in Frindorf, Austria. We were hardly ever home during the day if we could help it.

In a way I can't believe that he is 10 already. Where has the time gone? But I am so glad that God gave him to Russell and I as we would not be the same without him.

Cheers Damaris

Hi Amber, I have passed on your congratulations. Thank you so much. Yes he had a lovely day. He wants another Birthday soon but I have told him one a year is enough... He is getting older fast enough for me, thanks. :)
