I know, I know....

This poor blog has been so neglected lately. That's partly because I can't count on many minutes with my arms free of baby. Hopefully, that will be remedied soon. I start Napping Boot Camp this week, so pray for us.

This last week was great, thanks to the help of my mother. David had two "putting criminals in jail" events this week, back to back. It was really, really hard on him, and he didn't get much sleep. He said it was very educational, and he learned so much about how to do things when he has these one after another. For one thing, he learned that he should get a second chair when it happens. =) For two, he learned that if you have an event with a bunch of offenders involved, things can keep changing if they decide to admit guilt and bow out at the last minute. And that can be a good or a bad thing, but complicated. Anyhoo...

We were both thrilled and relieved that it was all over on Friday. And I hadn't had a rough time of it without him because Mom was here to help. This weekend has been nice and relaxing for all of us.

Things have been going so well that we even picked up an extra son today. =) We signed up for the adopt a college student program at church. That means that Josh will be coming to our house and eating our food and doing his laundry and playing with his new "brothers" at least once a month for the next year. We're excited about it! And since he's a poli sci major, we'll have lots to talk about around the dinner table.

Community Bible Study and MOPs started up again for the year the last couple of weeks. I'm excited about the study for sure. We'll be studying Luke in depth. It's been nice to get back into a regular Bible study again. God's word seems more fresh to me than it has as I've struggled to get in there this summer.

And now Evan has stopped being happy on his blanket, and I have to go... =) Hugs to blogland.

Mark just started a sermon series through the book of Luke that will take us chapter by chapter (with only a couple weeks off) and end with the resurrection on Easter. I'm looking forward to it. If you occasionally get the chance, it may be helpful to listen to some of his sermons with your bible study.

Good luck with Napping Boot Camp! I know that drill quite well. Hopefully your little camper will get the hang of it without too many tears.

I'll keep you in my prayers!
