We've had an eventful summer, as I'm sure most people with toddlers do. In June we found out that Jada (our little Lebanese beauty) is allergic to mosquito's!!!!! And as you know, we live in mosquito land. Due to an infection on her calf we were admitted into Children's Hospital for 24 hours of antibiotics by i.v. That was crazy to say the least. Jada survived her cage of a bed, and now we just make sure to spray her with bug spray any time we leave the house.
Ian has changed so much over the past 6 weeks. About 3 or 4 weeks ago he decided to walk, and then 2 weeks ago he decided "no more baby food"(Yippee), and then this past week he turned 1! Needless to say he and Jada are everywhere. They are such a blessing!
God has also returned to us Brian & Janet! After 12 years in California God has called them to serve Him in Arkansas of all places. I was prepared for Africa or China or any place other than Arkansas! They are looking for jobs and a place to live as they prepare to seek God's guidance for beginning a church plant in the Cabot area. We are so grateful to have them here with us, and we look forward to making lots of memories with them while they are so close!
