My sweet Josiah is growing up!

Soem fish he drew at local Preschool

Some fish and apples, not really sure what else he drew at Preschool!
I think this was suppose to be an attempt at learning to lace shoes at Preschool?!

With one of our sweet English Corner friends, Vivian!
This is the sweet face I love!  He loves chicken and dippy at McDonalds!

One day he cracked me up, just asked if he could read books while going potty! haha!

Josiah is really precious these days - he is growing in so many ways- he barely throws fits and argues, that stage seems to have come to a "pause" for this time, for he seems to really understand so much more and mostly attempt to be compliant, his heart is a lot softer than a few months back...he is maturing!  He is sensitive to the fact that the majority of the people where we live do not know or believe there is a GReat Creator God who loves them and wants a relationship with them...he knows they are in darkness and tries to remember that when relating to them!  He tries to love on Evie Joy, give her good advice, set a good example most of the time, invites her to play with him and tries to come to her rescue when she is in despair! He has such a sweet gentle spirit in giving Mommy lots of hugs and kisses everyday- Mommy really loves this about 4 years old!  He also has such a great learners attitude in learning so many stories and songs and verses in both in English and in Chinese.  He still loves singing and dancing as you can see from Children's Day!  He tries to communicate the best he can to the local children and asks everyday how to say so many new things.  He is learning more about worship like what mercy is and what it means that God is faithful and loving and what it means to be wicked and righteous.  He loves singing the song "Thy Word!"  When Daddy goes away he tries to be the "man" of the house and he loves to co-teach with Daddy at English Corner, it is so sweet, I should video sometime!  I praise God for the gift of being Josiah's Mommy, for this sweet stage of 4 1/2 years old with him, for his gentleness and sensitivity and joy.  I just wanted to take a few minutes to jot down some of the many things I am loving about Josiah these days!
