Daddy's weekend project

This weekend David built a climbing wall for our girls! (Thank you Papa for your generous gift of climbing wall materials. What a blessing!) Wubs was thrilled when she ran into the backyard to go try out her new swingset addition. David still wants to use a sander to make the sides of the climbing wall smooth. He warned Wubs about getting a splinter. After climbing up and down the wall about 10 times, Wubs spotted a little sliver of wood sticking out. She asked, "Mama, is that one of the stingrays?" Luckily, no splinters (or stingrays) stopped Wubs from having a great time! wink! Here's the finished project!
Daddy demonstrates for Wubs. She was hesitant to try at first.
As Wubs was climbing up the wall those first few times, I was encouraging her by cheering, "You can do it, Wubs! You can do it!" She turned to me and said, "You need to say it louder."

This weekend was also special because David and I celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for the precious gift of our marriage, and my wonderful husband. God is so good!
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."- 1 Corinthians 13:4-5
