A couple weeks ago L3 laid down for a nap and awoke with a swollen eye. As the day progressed it only got worse. Chad took him to the ER at the pediatrician's suggestion. IV antibiotics, a CT Scan, and hours later they returned home (at about 2 am). Unfortunately the next day it was even worse. You can see from the pic on the left that his eye was completely swollen shut. Pediatrician's visit and more antibiotics and the swelling finally went down the next day (pic on the right). L4 has spent more time in the hospital than the rest of our children combined...*sigh*. You can also see from the pics that he doesn't seem to actually look sick at all...and I can assure you, he never slowed down.
F is for ...Friends and Field Trip
Field trips are always so much more fun with friends! Last week we spent the day at the zoo with another family that we love. It was a little cool, but we didn't mind. We prefer field trip learning over book learning most days!
G is for ... Godly Heritage
This past weekend we had the pleasure of once again standing before our congregation and dedicating a sweet baby to the Lord. It's truly amazing to see this large brood that God has given us. I'm praying that somehow amidst the chaos and noise and mess that we can model enough humility and grace to pass on a Godly heritage to these children. Oh LORD, please let them see our sincerity and forgive us of our hypocrisy.
