Who's Who: The kids wearing the shirts we made them a few months ago.
Here's an update on life around here:
- Raphael is almost seven weeks and is treating us to the sweetest smiles! We're so thankful that he is healthy and growing like a weed! (Erik just commented that he thinks our weeds are actually growing faster!)
- We've gone from an unusually cool and rainy spring to full-blown summer weather. Up until a few days ago we'd had only a few days that hit 7o degrees, and now it's been getting up in the mid 90s! Yikes! It takes a bit of getting used to, but thankfully we have cooling in our house so there's some relief and escape from the heat wave. It's supposed to cool down again over the next few days. The garden and the kids are both enjoying the sprinkler!
- Erik worked about a jillion hours over the last several days. He was privileged to be able to work on a project testing some new equipment that was brought over from Korea. It was a great opportunity for him even though it meant super long days. He's able to take the extra hours as paid time off, so in the long run it will mean more time together, but it's not been easy having him gone for such long days and not getting a weekend.
- I've come down with a breast infection, the first in my breastfeeding career. I'm pretty wiped out and have spent most of yesterday and today on the couch. Thankfully my mom and sister have been able to help with the older kids, and Erik came home early today to take care of me. I'm hoping it will pass quickly without having to take antibiotics, but on the other hand I need to get well so I can care for my family. I'd appreciate your prayers for this.
