daily prayers

mike started to write a post about our blog being a "dead end" (no links to other blogs, which was brought to his attention by his blog hopping sister - these are his words, not mine - beth) and while that is true, i think i'll fix that. it's been a long time and it was time for a new lay out and while we have plenty of pictures, they are not downloaded yet so for now you get a story (you, the 5 people who probably still check this blog- beth, grandma j, lisa, ingrid, and chris).

for the past few nights when we've put greta to bed she has asked during her prayers who we are praying to. "who are you talking to?", "where is God?", "is He here?", "what's He saying?". we have answered saying that Jesus is in our hearts and all around us. so tonight she said, "you mean he's in my heart, like in my tummy?" she then started patting her tummy, got a huge smile on her face and said, "i think i feel something in there!" what a sweet thing for a little girl to start to wonder about God and be so excited about the joy of Him.

the only other big thing around here is that calla has finally figured out the difference between hello and good bye. she finally started waving good bye, where before she would only wave for hello. it was really funny that it took her so long to get that one down. she is a riot! she broke a molar last week, which explains her understandably rotten attitude the few weeks prior. we are enjoying the sweet, lively calla who has returned to us...with all her dance moves still intact! someday we'll post a video of our dancing diva.

pictures are coming...keep checking back, i promise they'll be up sometime soon!

I like the new look, Sarah! It was great to see you out in Chicago a few weeks ago. Your girls are so sweet! I loved watching so many little ones in princess costumes walking around and playing together!

Great new look Sarah! All Kaia has been talking about lately is Great and Calla's new house and that she wants to go back and see it and play with Greta. So we may be making a trip back to Corvalis soon! I can't wait to see the pics. I will send you the pics from our last trip to see you! We miss you!

Oh, don't worry about not updating your blog enough...we'll all keep checking, regardless! And we're the worst culprits of blog-procrastination, so you're in good company. :D Always good to read your stories and news, old or new. Missed seeing you in Minnesota! Much love, Becca

Stories are just as good as pictures, either way it is great to hear what is happening out West. I was at the Pines this past weekend and saw the crew that was there. Hope to catch you sometime in August!
