Since I showed all Rina last week it seemed appropriate to highlight these two this week 🙂 Aren’t they just too stinkin’ cute! I love their smiles.

We are doing well. The 3 kids and I are fighting colds and Bry has been gone since Tuesday dinner BUT the colds are small and Bry will be home before the kids are in bed 🙂 Life is good.

As for my father-in-law, the chemo continues. His reactions vary from week to week but certain struggles continue. I won’t go in to the details but

there are side effects that WE hadn’t anticipated-nothing out of the ordinary for chemo. You just can’t know what the body will do until you are on it. Thankfully, he has been able to preach every other Sunday so there is still some normalcy and routine.

The thrush is gone – praise the Lord! We’re still trying to figure out a bedtime routine for little Ali though. Her fussy time seems to be 9:30-11:30 pm 🙁 Not fun. But we are learning how to deal with it. But can the girl smile. Her whole face lights up!

Micah is growing so quickly. Just this evening I was watching him put together a puzzle that just a month or so ago he could barely figure out! And lately he’s been walking around singings “Jesus loves me.” I just love it 🙂 He doesn’t get all the words out but at least he knows the gist of it. He also joins us occasionally singing the “Sh’ma” at night – I need to get it on video…
