A busy week

We've had a few of those. :)

Monday was pretty quiet. School and all of that.

Tuesday was speech for Emily, then R came to visit for a few hours. The kids love playing with her and she's 2 now and so much fun to have around. Tim has just recently gotten into the "big brother" groove with her and it's hilarious to listen to him. "No, no, R...don't touch that. Here, play with this."

Wednesday was new ear tubes for Emily. She did great with the surgery but decided she didn't like her doctor AT ALL when she threw up 9 times after anesthesia. Yes, 9. Thankfully they sent us home with a small bucket and I only had to stop three times on the way home to dump it. Ick. ;) She tried to eat when she got home (she was so hungry!) but it didn't work out so well. After a little rest time she was fully recovered and, in true Emily style, decided she had to eat eggs first since she had missed them at breakfast. I did NOT give her eggs first but after I was convinced her stomach had settled she did get her eggs.

Today was shots for Julia and Bianca. Neither one cried and the nurse was so impressed with how the other kids did in the room (I had all 6 of them with me) that she gave all of the kids a pencil.

You could have heard a pin drop in the awed silence when she said they would all get one. Pencils are like gold in our house!

The dirty house is almost done. We have it scheduled to be listed on November 1. We'll see if we can hold to it, but I think we can make it. NOTE: That last "we" should really read "Mark", who is going to nearly kill himself trying to get this house finished alone.

Oh, and did I mention (no, I did not) that he has a new job? Mark is now a therapy manager. YAY for my awesome hubby!!! :)

It's been a little crazy busy around here.

Just the way I like it. :) :)

Congrats to Mark! That is so exciting. And good luck to him on getting all that work done. You know if we were closer, Micah would be there helping.

Hey Courtney. I've been thinking about you guys, always have fond memories of our times in Ukraine together. How are Julia and Bianca doing? Do they even remember any Russian any more? Always am looking forward to your posts. And... are any pictures coming????? Lord bless you! with love, Luba and family.

Hey Courtney, I'm so glad you're enjoying being at home. I love to read your blog and learn how to pray for and rejoice with your family! I thought you might be interested in the free Spasenie concert at West Hills on November 23rd at 6:30 p.m.. This band from Belarus performs in both Russian and English and have an amazing testimony. If you know other families who might enjoy this, please pass the word! God bless you!! Nancy
