Today, we have another teenager in our house.

This boy has been sweet since the day he was born.

He has a very quiet, but sometimes goofy personality. He is very affectionate and considerate of others.

*He looks angry in this photo, but it shows his serious side.

He is very passionate about a few things, and he pores himself into knowing and learning everything to do with these passions.

*this photo is from the website... it is part of one of the hikes they will doing.

When Abby turned 13, we took her to New York City. Josiah has been looking forward to finding out where he would be going for his 13th birthday. We have booked a heli-hiking trip for him and Tim with Canadian Mountain Holidays. They go in July, and I will be praying for their safety the entire time! It will be quite the adventure.

Happy Birthday Josiah!

What a handsome acomplished boy, and he's only a teenager! I'm pretty sure he's excited about his trip! Unlike his praying mother! :)

Oh my, you HAVE been busy with birthdays!!

Happy Birthday to Josiah! His celebration trip sounds amazing (and scary, at least for the Mama at home). That's a beautiful tradition of celebrating your newly-minted teenager with a fantastic trip.
