Happy Birthday to Ryan!

Dear Ryan, You were born today. Actually, yesterday if you were in Korea. Which means I get to be thankful for you twice this year! One of the things I love about you is that you like to discuss. And it could be many topics but it is fun to talk with you and you always ask me such interesting questions that get me thinking. I love how you feel deeply and are emotional. I love your passion about people being treated fairly because I do know you don't shop at WalMart which I must say I haven't shopped there for almost five months myself. But most of all I love how you are a husband and father. I should put FATHER in caps, right? I love your desire to always be better. Thank you for loving Katy and giving us those most beautiful granddaughters! I love you! Thank you for being born today, and yesterday. (See you couldn't say I wasn't born yesterday.)

Always a New Face

I'm thinking I should do a Korean mannequin series. Don't you think these are beyond wonderful?

A Sisters Sleepover!

Sisters Marsden and Saunders' heater broke so we got them for the weekend! It was so fun to have them here and listen to them study and sing and pray! We will miss them!

Letters and Visitors!

I surprised Umida as she walked through the door for English class. I love her! I just wish I could communicate better--Jordan, I need you!

This is our display in our little entrance to our apartment. Thank you for the letters and the creative love you send our way!

Korean Games

I looked out my window and saw these little children all playing together. I am really touched by the scene because honestly, you just don't see children playing together all that often. The girl in the pink coat was obviously in charge, telling everyone what to do. The poor little girl in the yellow coat was just too small to get the message!
