Special Time with Kate and Liz

Katelyn and Elizabeth Downing have been a special part of our lives since the moment they were born (actually...even before that!) I've had the privilege of watching them grow from babies, to little girls, to teens...

However, because we've lived away over the last few years, I've missed a lot of growing up! I've missed that transition phase that's now referred to as "tween." From 11-14 a LOT happens to a little girl! And, in my mind, until recently, Kate and Liz were still "little."

I'd often be walking by the girls' clothing section and think, "Oh, that would look so cute on Liz or Kate!" But, then I would realize that I actually don't know what size they are anymore...I don't know what would fit them...I don't know what they're "in" to...


So, I threw it out there to their mom that maybe she should let them take the train up here from Vancouver Washington to Canada to let them spend some time with us. She agreed! WAHOO!!! I got to enjoy a whole 5 days with "my girls." Our evening ritual included cups of tea and long conversations...lots of laughter, lots of connecting, lots of learning who these wonderful girls are.

And, what I learned is that Kate and Liz are young women who desire to be like Christ...they want to love others, be pure and holy and set apart. They're young academics preparing for university and successful careers. They're AMAZING girls, and I am honoured to call them MINE! love you little ladies :)
