We are the Blackburn Family. Nick and I have been married 14 years now. We have 8 children; Paige, 13, Josiah, 10, Levi, 8, Caleb, 7, Timothy, 6, Hunter James, 4, Buddy Stonewall, 3, And Silas Boaz, 21 months. We have laboured at Heritage Boys Academy for six years now. In April of 2008, Nick took a trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Africa. In July of this year, Nick felt the call to go to the Congo as missionaries. We are finishing out the year here at the Academy, and then it's full time deputation from then on out. We are planning on taking a trip over in May, which I am very excited about. It will help me to know better what things we will need and how life will be over there.
Boaz loved for us to color with him. And we would every time, just to see his face light up. When we colored he loved to scribble on it, just to tease us. Then he would look at us with that michievous look and smile his gorgeous smile.
Sometimes children say the funniest things. Other times it's soooo typical that you aren't sure weather to laugh, or cry!!!
Stonewall: "I'm gonna go to Walmart and buy an airhorn, then I'm gonna use it to wake up Sister at 6:30!" Then he laughs hysterically!!!
Timothy (7): When I grow up my house is gonna be shaped like an alligator. You'll have to go in the mouth to get in, then slide down and people will scream!"
