And then there were 14!
What a great day! The children woke up this morning to find that a kind old friend of mine had donated some money late the night before - and how excited the kids were to put together some of the pieces of the puzzle! Their fingers had been just itching to do it since we got it in the mail. The kids even offered to take the puzzle apart once they had it all put together :)
Carissa is the one responsible for putting the heart shape around the pieces in the picture - and Tyler is the one that originally suggested using 6 sets of chopsticks in the very first puzzle picture - he said it was because soon there will be six of us. I thought that was so sweet.
We decided to include chopsticks in each picture that we take of the puzzle. We'll see how creative we can get - it could prove to be challenging!
My folks added in a donation for some of our family members who have passed away. I know all of them would have enjoyed our future daughter, and I thought it was a very kind gesture to make. We will definitely make sure their names are on the back of the puzzle pieces and tell our new daughter all about them.
In His name,
The Burgess Family
