Reuben is 5!

It's been 5 years since we welcomed our third child into the world, but it hardly seems a minute. Not long after moving to Louisville, we found out we were expecting him and were greatly surprised but happy that God was blessing our family again.

Five years later, Reuben is still such a blessing and delight to our family. We are so thankful for his quiet and laid back spirit. He does a wonderful job of playing by himself as well as collaborating with his siblings to play games and build. We also love his sensitive spirit that is so sweet towards others. His docile personality is such a blessing in a house full of chaos!

Reuben loves to build and create with blocks, especially Legos. While a calm spirit, he is still a boy and enjoys a good fight or wrestling match with his Daddy and brothers. He LOVES "Star Wars" and "The Hobbit" and builds a lot of these characters out of blocks to have battles.

Reuben also loves to learn! He worked through a Pre-K program this year and loved every minute. He loves having something for his mind to focus on. We are excited to see how much he grows in learning this year.

Reuben makes us all smile with his love of singing and dancing. This boy knows so many praise songs, it makes my heart melt! It is such a joy to listen to him sing about God and the truths of His Word.

We are so thankful to have Reuben in our family and greatly look forward to seeing how God will use him in our lives and to further His Kingdom.

Father, make Reuben a man after Your own heart and teach him to know and love you with all that he is. Use him for your Kingdom that many may know of your great love because of this precious boy!
