As much as I hated to see the nonscheduled days of summer end and school begin, it came anyway. I had a very intentional summer full of time with Benjamin and the grandsons.
The beginning of the school year has brought us another welcome addition to our family.
Our daughter-in-law was put on bed rest for the last week of her pregnancy. She needed to make it to 37 weeks, which allowed me the joy of having Joshua and Maverick. We decided we needed one more cousin picture before the newest Wright would be added to the growing heritage of boys.
Here is David (21 months) Joshua (4) holding his cousins (Elliott and Thomas - three months), then Maverick (21 months)
This week the phone call came and I ran to my car at 3 am to go meet my son and daughter-in-law at the birthing center, to bring Joshua and Maverick back with me. Almost before I arrived home our newest grandson was born.
Anchor Hawkins Wright
Our daughter-in-law wanted a name that share the character qualities of our son. "Steady and deep-rooted" were the character qualities she wanted passed to their son, through his name. Anchor is the name God confirmed multiple times for their son.
I also had the joy of bringing his big brothers to meet him and also get to see him myself.
Our family is rejoicing over this new addition to our family.
Born September 9th - 7 pounds and 11 ozs. Three weeks early.
Of course the boys then needed shirts. So the next morning after taking Uncle Ben to school...we went shopping and bought supplies. Joshua loves orange...he is the oldest grandson and now big brother to two small brothers. He will be my daughter-in-law's right hand.
Maverick is now a big brother also. He held his baby title a little longer than his cousin David did...but only by three months.
Greeting brother at home for the first time. All the family was back together.
I am still Boy Grandmom. Our hearts overflow with the joy of six grandsons in two years! Wow Lord!! You truly give more than we could have ever dreamed or hoped.
I plan to come back to blogland after my summer break. I miss everyone and also miss how the Lord teaches me through you all. This summer was full of reflection and learning to take each day, one day at a time.
