Just an update for y'all at the end of this wet week:
Hurricane Isaac has dumped lots of rain and wind at our house starting wednesday afternoon, but we are well and drying out! Myles was feeling a bit 'under the weather' wednesday, but was back in action for the rest of the week. He's doing really well at school and I even completed his first 'project' for him :) Michael told him, 'wow, mommy's doing so great on your poster! She's going to be great at doing your homework". (insert sarcastic laugh by me) NOT hardly buddy! All in all, he's liking school, but it will take a little time to feel comfortable in a new environment.
Next, I wanted to share our new August 2012 number...62! That's five spots this month!
This upcoming month of September is declared a month devoted to prayer at our house (as every month should be I guess, but I digress...) If you haven't heard, Michael is on sabbatical from work/church for the month and is doing some serious resting/learning/traveling/praying! We are beyond grateful to our wonderful church for this opportunity!! I'll be trying to keep life for Myles as close to our 'normal' as possible, with the exception of a beach trip and a few days with his grandparents so Michael and I can get away together! If you think about us this month, would you pray for us? We would love to hear the Lord together, grow together, and be replenished together.
And to end this disjointed update, our friends Doug and Shelley are finishing up their adoption and need the last bit of money to bring their son home, so they are selling t-shirts. They are gray and have the blue silhouette of Ethiopia on the front with Psalm 127 inscribed inside "Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord." I ordered mine this week and can't wait to sport it:) We were in ministry for a season with this dear family and love that we're both on this journey of adoption! If you can't swing the t-shirt cost (only $15), and even if you can, please know that prayer is even more vital and I'm sure they would love for you to say their name to our heavenly Father on their behalf! Here's their blog address where you can see the t-shirt fundraiser post and learn more about their journey! http://www.dougandshelley.blogspot.com/
