I know I'm bias....

But is this not the cutest kid you've ever seen? We had a great time at the youth's fall retreat! It's like Charlie was born to be a youth pastor's kid- he LOVES all the attention, the busyness, the silliness, the absolute chaos that seems to follow teenagers wherever they go!
We also rode this crazy bumpy hatchback Hummer up the mountain, unfortunately I don't have any pictures of that because I was literally, holding onto him for dear life. But, oh my gosh, he had his arms in the air "like the big kids" and giggled and screamed the entire time.
We also rode the paddle boat, and for the same reasons, there aren't any pictures. :)
But we had the best time!


  1. Adorable kid and adorable pic of the family!!!

  2. I LOVE MY CHARLIE!! He is so adorable and just the most flexible, outgoing little boy! He is fearless, fun & lovable. I love to see his excitement for life!! You are blessed and so am I!!

  3. I am reminded in this post that you and your husband work at a that correct? My husband and I do to. I'd love to pick your brain about how you and the church handled all of the changes that came when Charlie came home. I'd love it if you emailed me so I could ask a few questions if you don't mind. (In the spare time we both know you don't really have at the moment) :)

  4. Great Picture Sarah- You look fantastic for being almost 8 months pregnant too! Love ya, Shawn

  5. Chad and Sarah,
    We are so thrilled to see how Charlie has just embraced his new life with such joy! And, we understood the agony of the decision you were trying to make about the new baby after everything you've been through during the past few years. But, we are thanking God that you have a new baby on the way, and we will be praying for an incredibly smooth next few months for all three of you.
    Many blessings,
    Jen and Jesse
