3 and a half years

friday: september 14

three and a half years ago, our dear friends richard and christy left their safe and comfortable lives in america for an amazing God adventure in indonesia.

three and a half years ago our "group" only had two babies – preston and case. now, there are TOO MANY TO COUNT in my head! preston & case each have a sibling. richard and christy had oliver and another boy is expected in november. we’ve had davey and so many other friends have added to their family unit, as well.

so to celebrate the "homecoming" (for one year) of richard and christy, we had another play group yesterday. kelsey (and little markus) drove up from dupont. taya (and little isaiah) were in town still from little rock, arkansas. and as many of us that could gathered yesterday for another chaotic few hours of play and interrupted "adult" conversations.

i’m sad to say i did NOT get a photo of each mom with her kids, but maybe as the weeks and months go by i can capture a mommy & child(ren) shot of each family.

davey is currently protesting that it’s his turn to eat (i’m eating a cinnamon roll right now – my latest food addiction) so i guess i should get going. i think this will be a low-key weekend. play group yesterday threw us into a bit of a tailspin and davey had a few melt-downs yesterday.  hopefully just hanging out around the house today will "right" him (and his mama)!!

  1. I’m with you, Davey, I think that many moms and kids would “do me in” too, no matter how much I loved them all! I think the play group is absolutely amazing – what an awesome way for all you young moms to keep connected. This baby boom absolutely dwarfs the one at Grace when we were having kids, and I LOVE it. To see you young moms watching out for each other, building relationships and keeping connected is unbelievably cool. Thanks so much for sharing the news and pics. Hang in there while Davey’s and your world gets “right” on its axis again. :) Love you lots.

  2. That is a whole lot of kids! Looks like a ton of fun. Glad to hear that Davey likes the miracle blanket… it was wonderful for MK. Micah loved the Spiderman stamp. He carried around for a day and called it his special birthday card. Very cute!
