So we drew a penguin on his cake, cut sandwiches into fish shapes, and hung paper penguins that Gloria drew all over the house. Then we got him a Slip n' Slide since penguins like to slide on their bellies. We also filled the cooler with water and plastic sea creatures so that he could pretend to fish for them.

Although Sarah is not our daughter, we feel like she is a daughter of our heart. We've prayed for her, counseled her, and hoped the best for her for years now. It's so hard seeing her grow up and become her own person.
I know that she is the first. She is, in a way, like the oldest of our children. This is just a preview of what's ahead. Next Shannon, her younger sister will be moving out on her own and starting her own life. I can't help thinking how much harder this is going to be when Danya is taking her first fledgling steps into the world. I'm hopeful and worried and trying to act like it's no big deal... but they see right through me.
