We went out with Sasha today and found that one of our favorite sledding spots has a delightful ice slick. Who needs sleds?
… a reminder of God’s grace to us over the last few months.
A few weeks ago Sam & I headed to some friends’ birthday party at cool play place. We expected it to be crowded and crazy, and Sam doesn’t love crowds in playground settings, so we kept our expectations low. But he loved it! He played by himself, he played with his friends, and I just sort of kept a general idea of what quadrant he was in.
I realized that 3 months ago, and especially 6 months ago, this never would have happened. Sam would have wanted to play, but the other kids would have freaked him out, and he would have melted down and fallen asleep on the way home. Thank God for grace that gets us closer and closer to normal!
Daddy’s other favorite: watch how he keeps trying until he gets his leg up on this thing! Love it.
A series of events left Foard & I at the dinner table alone tonight, so I thought I’d just give the blog a taste of our conversation.
Don’t be a hater of my badly-pronounced Czech “Merry Christmas” at the end.
So… our first full winter is upon us.
Last year, what with the whole every-single-aspect-of-your-entire-existence-is-being-shaken thing, Sam wasn’t a huge fan of the snow. This year: another story.
But the pièce de résistance is our new sled ramp. It started as a simple mogul to get the sled going. Next week, weather permitting, I’m putting in steps and a snack bar.
Our afternoon feast was followed by a team celebration at the Davises.’
We changed our clothes (Lady Gaga-style), hopped in the car and made room in our bellies for more deliciousness.
Talitha took several of these amazing pictures- I love how she captured the feel of our evening!
Thanks, Team, for such a sweet first Thanksgiving in Prague!
Our Thanksgiving was double-the-blessing, double-the-fun this year.
At noon we celebrated with a handful of friends from church– Amy, Beth, Bryan, Dennis, Kelsey & Thad
[Thanks, Hadleys, for letting me steal some of your shots!]
Just a few shots from children’s ministry at our church.
… which they learned quickly and taught the congregation the very next Sunday.
Sam’s been very, uh, protective of Piper recently.
Enjoy the video.
