Hi, this is Matt blogging today; this is what happens when I'm home alone with the kids. When Elizabeth was very little, I used to wrap her up in a blanket and tell her that she was a taco. She LOVED it. Seriously, LOVED it. Apparently kids like being wrapped up tight inside a hot blanket. Frankly, she still loves it. More than you can imagine.

So today, while Shannon was out doing something very important and spiritual, I made a double-stuft taco right here at the house. I love these things. Check it out.

Shamefully Behind

Friends, I do apologize that time has slipped by me so quickly. As you may suspect, there has been a flurry of activity since "Blackberry Picking." Some of those activities include: Matt and I went on vacation (alone) to Chicago. Wonderful!!! We celebrated Matt's birthday...for a whole week. We like to call this "Birthday Week" as a tribute to our dear best friends the Malones who originated the name. Super fun! Abigail has a new tooth...number 13 to be precise. This past weekend, one of our current interns got married, and we were a part of the celebration. Beautiful and glorifying to the LORD. And today, Elizabeth started swim lessons. These run every night for two weeks. Whew!!!

I promise that I'll post pics soon, but I thought you'd want to know a little bit of what we're up to. Really, we're just lovin' life and the chance to be low-key (?) at home for the summer. :)
