Conversations with Kids

I decided to get in a quick grilling while the rain was holding back and Ethan came out to help. So we started by cleaning the grills. He got one and I got the other. So I finished scrubbing mine and turned to tend the coals and he flipped my grill over and said, "You missed a spot." What a nut! He totally made me clean the underside of my grill too!

Then while Haven and I were chatting tonight she noted how her little shelf was full. I suggested she throw something away to which she replied, "No way!" Most of you know Haven suffers from severe Hypochondria. So I told her about a new disease I think she has: Packratitis. It went like this:

Me: I think you have "Packratitis."
Haven: What's that?
Me: It's an inability to throw things away.
Haven: DUH!

Duh. Oh man I love these kids!

A Day Out

At the Pool

The kids had some fun, but they spent most of the time with Ethan trying to get Haven to get in the pool with him and Haven pouting. That's ok. I got to listen to almost a whole audio book in between their visits to the towels.

At the Park

On the way back to the house we stopped for ice cream and hung out at the park for a little while. We're all sunburned but it was a really fun day!

Prayer Request

Most of you know we have a young man, Emanuel, who has been living with us since October 2007. Yesterday he was finally accepted to the university he's been wanting to go to: Moody Bible College. He wasn't accepted to the main campus in Chicago, but the AVIATION campus in Spokane, Washington! This is very exciting because he has dreamed of flying planes for YEARS! But the aviation program is VERY expensive!

I am completely convinced this is where he is supposed to go. Please join us in praying for God to provide the finances to get him there! Thanks!

To my family...

Don't panic! I'm still here. I have several things I need to get blogged but I've been busy with activities and working on my little design business. I'll get to them soon! Love you all!
