Ella's walking ... !

It's been a couple of weeks since Gabriella, William, Kim, and Doug came to stay with us for the weekend - we enjoyed their visit so much! Especially because Ella is now up and walking around the house like she's been doing it all of her young life. Here's a short video for your enjoyment.

September Already?

Summer may be winding down but we’re as busy as ever. Kitty drove in from KC and another visit with the Will and Ella, Greg flew in from LA (sitting next to Marshall Faulk, no less!) after another business trip, and off we went to our church’s annual Labor Day Retreat at Pinecrest Camp. For more than 20 years we've appreciated the Church of the Nazarene making this facility available to our St. Louis area Covenant churches. It should be changed to Pinecrest Resort, though, as the accommodations just keep getting bigger and better. The three-day weekend was filled with a lot of fun, wonderful times of worship and prayer, great food, inspiring teaching, and just being with so many friends we’ve made through church. You really should plan to join us next year!

Home again and getting ready for Kim, Doug, Will, and Ella to visit this weekend – we hear Ella is walking now and we can’t wait to see for ourselves. Kristy and Cam placed a Skype video call the other night so we could watch Ruth walking around their bedroom. They’re all growing up so fast! We can almost talk with Will now when we call their house – he’s learned so many words and the sentences are coming together. We always knew he had a lot to say …!

We hope you were all blessed with a wonderful, enjoyable Summer and are getting ready for Fall. And we hope to see many of you between now and the end of the year.
