No pics

Hey, Nathan and I have decided to no longer put photos on our blog. We will keep you updated on what's going on with our lives, but no more pics. For several reasons, but we just don't feel comfortable with people being able to access photos of our family and use them for whatever purpose (which has happened!).

All Done!

Today we had to be at the hospital for Amelia's surgery by 6:30AM and believe it or not, we were home by 11:00AM. The surgery went really well, and Amelia is doing great. She, of course, was a little uncomfortable after the surgery, but with a little pain medicine, she's been her same old happy self. She's a little sleepier than normal, but that's to be expected. The problem has been taken care of, and prayerfully, that's Amelia's last surgery. Thank you to all of you for your prayers for Amelia.

Last weekend, we had our first baptism service. It was such a joy to see new Christians making a public display of their faith. We cried in rejoicing with them (or should I say, I and many of the girls cried!). What a day!!!

Watershed in the Community

Our church, Watershed, is really trying to find ways we can become more and involved in the community. This summer, there are lots of events that we are helping our with. This is one event we did last weekend where we provided inflatable games. It was a huge success! The kids loved it (and so did the parents!).

First Time

The first time Amelia had juice, she didn't really like it. She made a "yuck" face and spit it out. The first time she had a banana...that was a different story! The first time Amelia brushed her teeth, all she wanted to was chew on the toothbrush.

Strongman Competition

In Grandview, we had a Strongman's Competition. Our family went to watch all these big guys lifting unbelievable amounts of weight. Zeke had a lot of fun playing.

Another Surgery

We need all of your prayers, on Tuesday we had an appointment with the doctor who did Amelia's belly surgery when she was born. I had become concerned because she had a round risen part above her belly button. So we went in to check on it. He said she has a epicgastric hernia and that they are going to have to do surgery to correct it. Luckily it is an out patient surgery, but it's her forth surgery!!!! We are feeling the stress of it and a little frustrated about how much she's been through. But God has made this little lady so strong. She bounces back really quick. The surgery is scheduled for July 9, first thing in the morning. So please pray for us. Thank you so much.

Pool Time

Since summer break, we've been at the pool almost everyday. We got pool passes for the summer and intend on becoming pool rats :) The first day the water was freezing. Zeke had a blast jumping in and playing with the other kids. Amelia on the other hand, didn't really care for the cold water. But she's getting used to it.
