Within two weeks in late July and early August, our boys have birthdays back to back. Peter's actual birthday was at our Holmstead Family Reunion, so he had all of his cousins sing to him. After we got home we had a party at our house for Peter and his friends. They went swimming and had a fun time. He got his present, a new fishing pole, while we were on our pack trip. Happy Birthday! His baptism is planned for September 6th.
Joshua also had a big birthday - number 16! He had about 30 friends and cousins over for a party where they went swimming, played ping-pong and foos ball and played "The Name Game", where you try to get four males/females in the right chairs in the circle. The boys won (I know I'll hear about it if I don't make that clear). Joshua's Eagle Scout Court of Honor wil be held the first weekned in Septemeber, the same weekend that he baptizes Peter. Stay tuned for more details on that. Happy 16th Birthday Josh!
I'm so proud and happy to have these two wonderful sons.
