There's nothing like a baby to make you realize how fast time flies. I realize that I'm a terribly sporadic poster, but looking back at the pictures....Sadie is so small! What a wonder a little, growing child is!
I feel like I can only gauge time by the trips we take. I'm still amazed at how much we travel! We recently spent a week in KS enjoying wedding merriment and festivities. Loads of fun! Our next trip is to KY to put on a VBS for Buckhorn church at the end of this month. The end of July holds conference in IA (of which Jeremy and I are both speaking...same time, different places. Pretty bummed about that one!) where I plan on enjoying fellowship with friends from across the country. Please be there or be square, as we used to say. And for another picture...since I've given in to the baby taking over the blog idea.
Well, the month has finally slowed down for us. Sadie and I got to spend some time in KS with the grandparents and some dear, dear friends. We had lots of fun catching up with people and helping Cheri with wedding plans. Great way to make time fly by!
Jeremy returned from Africa (yeah!) on Saturday the 14th. Sadie and I got to ride the bus up to Detroit to pick them up. It would have been a really fun surprise, except they took longer in customs then we expected and Sadie got a little hungry. So out walks Jeremy and I have to stay seated with the blanket draped over me. Not exactly ideal, but it was nice not to have to wait all day to see him.
Sunday the team that went to Africa shared at church. It was nice for Jeremy to only have a shortened version of a sermon. Monday found us in the car to southern Indiana for Ministers Fellowship. It was a long ride for Sadie and Jeremy was still really messed up on his time. We spent the week in Indiana, coming back Friday to an appointment with the accountant. This may be the first year we got good news! Crazy how a baby can help that out so much. =)
This week we were finally able to get back to a bit of normalcy. What a blessing! We hope your month was full of blessings as well.
Please pray for Jeremy the next two weeks while he's in Africa.
Just thought I'd update to let you all know my "little growth" came out right when she was supposed to on November 14th. She came a little early in the morning, 1:05 a.m., and she weighed 7 lbs 4 oz and measured 20 inches. We gave her the name Sadie Faith (not Ethel or Mortimer, thank goodness!). Jeremy thought it would be nice to text a bunch of our friends so they would know as soon as they woke up. We thought it considerate not to call everybody...only family. The only problem with that (if you've happened to read Lem's blog) is that not everyone has their phone set to not wake them up every 5 minutes or so to let them know they have a message. Oops...our bad. Hope it didn't ruin anybody's day too badly!
Sadie is doing well...still working out the schedule, but overall she is a great little girl. Jeremy is so good with her! We feel so blessed and are glad she is a part of our lives. Thanks everyone for thinking of us.
