We’ll be uploading some photos soon, but I wanted to give an update on what has been going on. The past couple of weeks have been really busy. During the week, work and playing with Haley has consumed nearly all of our time. Haley is getting cuter and cuter. A few weeks back she seemed to have a slight cold and was fussy a lot. After about a week of it not clearing up on its own, Laura took her to the doctor. Turned out she had an ear infection. Giving her the medicine was next to impossible. It tasted like licorice. We got nearly all of it down her, though, and ever since she’s been giggling like crazy.
Weekends have been busy as well. We went to St. Louis one weekend for Laura’s grandparent’s anniversary party. Most of the rest of our weekends have been consumed with MSU football games. Haley’s been funny at the football games. We’ve trained her up right! She loves Bully. In fact, bulldogs, cowbells, and the M-State logo all go by the name “Bully” with her. She shakes her hand in the air and says “ring ring ring”. She’s actually enjoying the games now. When people around her cheer, she claps like crazy. A couple of times this past weekend she threw up her hands and said, “Touchdown”.
I’ve been getting ready for a mission trip I’m about to head out on. We’re going to Costa Rica to help a group called Adinfa set up a bakery. They will be selling food/pastries to help fund the facility that houses and feeds street children. It is going to be a lot of work, but we’ll have a little fun as well including visiting a coffee plantation and taking a zip line through the tree tops in a rainforest. I can’t wait. I know I’m going to miss my girls tremendously, though.
