I'm going to dash off a quick post before our internet goes back down. It's been down for a few days. I'm very frustrated with our service provider. Very.

Pictures and stories will follow, but here's a little bit of what's going on in our lives right now.

Zaya started Pre-K on Thursday. He loved it, and he loves his teacher, Mrs. Wilks. His picture on the first day is above. The sun was shining and Mommy was at a bad angle, but at least I got the picture. Oh, and he's wearing the wrong shirt. They were all supposed to wear their school shirts for pictures. I just forgot. The legend continues.

Mim had her third birthday on Friday. She got lots of games and princess presents and some toy goats. She loves all of it, and was thrilled with all the love and attention. She hardly even noticed that all the adults were very distracted because...

Art's Grandpa B died on Friday. We knew he was close to the end, but we weren't any more prepared than most people when this type of thing happens. He was a godly man who had lived a long, happy and fulfilling life. We will miss him, but we rejoice in the knowledge that he will no longer feel pain and has met his Savior.

Things are a little hectic here, to say the least.

Please forgive our absence the past few days, and possibly for a few days to come.

You have had a very emotional week! Blessings and prayers for you and your family. It doesn't matter how much notice we have before one passes, we still miss them.
Happy B-Day to Mim, and don't worry about Zaya's shirt, you had other things on your mind.

Love and Prayers
If you think of the four great-grandfathers Zaya had around when he was two years old, it is really much more inspiring than the Olympic hoop-la. He has an incredible heritage of Godliness and integrity.

Zaya looks adorable. And Happy Birthday to Mim.

Also, my condolences. I pray that his life will always be a witness to the great love of our God for us.

I'm sorry about Art's grandpa.

Zaya looks so big, all ready for his first day of school! You may have left out the part about crying sending your first born off to the big bad school!
