The big kids are having lots and lots of fun deep in the heart of Texas with their cousins!
It’s been kinda sad and lonely around here without them. I keep expecting to see them come around the corner any second!
For my Dad’s birthday we got him tickets to see Jerry Seinfeld, and of course included ourselves in on the gift, (and my brotherz). We had an awesome time LAUGHING together!
That’s Jerry down there – but my phone’s camera isn’t on its way to winning any awards for dimly lit distance photography!
Afterward as we were walking out we were approached by some “crazy stranger girl” 😉 who recognized us from the blog! Shanna and Ross, it was so so nice to meet you! You totally made our night!! I am usually one of those people that will make every excuse in the book NOT to go say something to someone in an occurrence such as this. Maybe because I’m an introvert in person (yes, really!) or maybe it’s my fear of rejection or MAYBE it’s not even “him” / “her” / “them” and I’ll look like an idiot! I totally admire and love the people like sweet Shanna who are willing and able to step out of any comfort zone that might possibly exist for them! Thanks for introducing yourselves and for extending your joy and friendship to us! What a blessing you were on top of an already awesome night!
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
(1 Peter 4:8 NIV)
The big kids are obviously still having a great time with their cousins!
Here they are swimming in a natural spring-fed pool that was reportedly “colder than Michigan water”. In that crazy Texas heat that doesn’t sound like such a bad thing!
What a cool picture we were sent of all the kids standing next to some kindly graffiti! Love this!!
“Speaking of love…”
“I know all about loves!”
“How could you not love a sweet face like this?”
“There’s loves AAALLLL around us!”
“You need to know something about loves, you come talk ta meee!!!”
“I KNOW things!”
“Have a happy Sunday! I love you!”
I have yet another prayer request. This one is for my sister Sarah. She went to the hospital yesterday to get fluids. She’d had a fever with lots of vomiting and was feeling really awful. Her blood pressure was low and they decided to keep her overnight in addition to some blood work. Today it was discovered that there is bacteria in her blood. They’re not sure how it got there. She’s getting a course of antibiotics which will hopefully get everything back to normal! I know she hates being away from her girls and of course little Parker. If you could please keep them all in your prayers, we would so greatly appreciate it!!
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
(1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV)
