    Yes, Patience is a lovely 10-year old now. She is so grown up too, for that age.  I really love all of the Tynes. That was Charity sittin on the curb next to Jacob;yes, still sucking her thumb! She just turned 7. Victor, standing next to Jacob, just turned 4.  Mercy is 8 and constance is 5.  It is a tremendous blessing that we still worship with them.  It made leaving Messiah’s easier to bring some of it with us!

    haha I like when they do that! Especially with their Dad.  Anthony was going to read a book i n Spanish for them and Joshua told him.  You, don’t speak Spanish.  Only Mami and Aggie and me speak Spanish.  You don’t.  Hah  Anth couldn’t keep from laughing and was like:  Yo hablo español.  With his cute accent!  :o) But Joshua kept insisting and telling him No.  You speak Engwish!   LOL

    Aw, that is so cute, haha!  I can totally relate, although now my kids are older so I’m able to do childless errands quite a bit.  🙂  Thanks for coming by my blog and wishing Sky a happy birthday.  It’s always great to meet new people on xanga!  You asked how we chose her name. When Andy & I got married we rented a house in a small town close to Griffiss AFB where he was stationed, called Schuyler, NY (pronounced “Skyler”).  While there was really nothing spectacular about the town (other than that it was our first home together), we always agreed that it would make a pretty name for a girl.  So, years later when we had a girl, we of course Schuyler.  She shortened it to Sky herself when she was about 2.
