Eli – August 2009

Matthew – Feb/Mar 2009

Matthew – Feb/Mar 2009

Matthew – August 2009 (He’s our introspective professor)

Micah – Feb/Mar 2009 (What a peanut he was when we met him 7 months ago!!)

Micah – August 2009 – WOW…what a difference in him.

Silly boys.  These guys are really great buddies.  It’s pretty cute.

Eli and his toy.  He’s still in his own world most of the time, but we have seen more glimpses of him lately.  It’s a good thing.

The whole family came with me for the Worship Ministry Retreat August 28 & 29 to Falls Creek.  We had a splendid time.

Gum anyone?  Falls Creek is a youth camp here in Oklahoma (at one time the largest in the world…don’t know if it still holds that record).  This tree is where students stick gum.  It’s been there since long before I went to camp there (ahem…20 years ago).

Micah really LOVES water.  He had a great splash time.



Matthew can occupy himself as well as Eli does.  It’s quite astounding really.  Living your first 6 years to yourself does that to you I guess when you’re left in a bed, high chair or play pen.




Mary was out watering the plants this week and had the two boys who had already been to school out there with her.  When she turned on the water, here they came!



Micah pouring beans.  He did this for a LONG time!!


Unsure if he’s pretending to be a babooshka or what!  But TOO FUNNY!

Matthew LOVES to swing.  Can you tell?



Micah has had two really good days in a row.  Today at school he did great.  The other kids are doing great too.  Bethany seems to be struggling with math, but the jump for 3rd to 4th in math is a big one.  Lots of new concepts.  She’s very smart and wants to excel, so I have no doubt she’ll be off and running in no time!

Blake’s first marching game is tonight.  Moore War!  Go Lions!

A band that I’m in (Red Dirt Road) is recording a live album tonight…that’s why I can’t go to the game to see Blake.  But next week, I’m there.

Looking forward to the long weekend.  It’s gonna be a good one.  I’m doing a tile job this weekend but it’s a pretty small one.  Trying to pay off the hospitals.  The next surgery is next Friday so we’ll start again with bills.  It’s Micah this time.  Matthew’s teeth are next then Eli and his ear drum.  We hope they’re all patched up after these!

Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

What next?
