Say "YES!" to God's call.
When He calls, He always enables.

Good News and Bad News

Good news first - we had a cake sent to Simon, along with a letter and pictures of our family and we got back pictures of him sharing it with some friends ! As you can see, his friends got their pieces first, but he got two pieces, all to himself. In all the ten pictures we received, he never once looked up at the camera. He is always staring down intently at his cake. Isn't he adorable !

Now for the bad news. Our other son, the one who still does not have an American name, will not get his cake for ten more days. It seems that on the way to school he found a firecracker and a lighter and managed to do enough damage to his hand and face, that he required a hospital stay. I don't know whether to be more worried about his physical well being or about the kinds of things he might try after he gets home. :/

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss !!!

At this very moment, I am sitting in a beautiful theater which is about to be occupied by 1500 elementary school kids who are about to see the Cat in the Hat come to life. My kids have already seen it many times, but have asked to come twice today because tonight will be the final performance. We are very blessed to have this priviledge. We have read many Seuss books this week - each child has read more than one On Their Own !! Yipee! Everyone can read !
