Tomorrow is the big day

At 5:30 am on Friday we are going to the hospital to induce Wes into coming into this world. Amy, myself and Grammy Carol will be up bright and early as we prepare for Wes' great arrival into the world.

More pictures and updates as we have something to say.

Grammy's Arrival

Today is the second full day of having Grammy Carol visit us. She came in from Indiana on Tuesday. We are hoping that we might be having a new little grandson for her to spoil soon! Amy has a doctor's appointment today, so after that we will know more about how close Wes is to entering the world.
The past few days have been chances to relax and enjoy spending time as a family with Amy's mom here. I (Amy) have to admit though that I am growing a little impatient about Wes coming, so we are going to go out this morning to lunch and to do some errands to try to keep our minds on something else.
Last night Mike and I were watching Wes move around and feeling him shift from side to side. It is amazing, this whole process of being born. His life is so precious already to God and to us.
On a different subject, right now Nathan is practicing wearing his Halloween costume. He is going to be an elephant this year. At first he didn't want to try it on, but then Mike pretended to put it on and Nathan was then willing. Now he doesn't seem interested in taking it off! He sure makes a cute elephant.
We are still working on getting some pictures on the blog...hopefully soon you'll be able to see our little elephant, too!

Good Days

Well, we have our computer back at home now, so we should be able to keep our blog more up to date. Still working on how to upload pictures with our home computer though.
Mike was out of town the past 2 days. I (Amy) was made well aware again of how much Mike does here at home, from playing with Nathan to helping to make dinner...I certainly have been spoiled the last month of his sabbatical.
I had a doctor's appointment this past Tuesday and found out that Wes is still doing great. There are less than two weeks now until his due date, and the doctor set up an appointment for me to be induced a week from tomorrow (the 28th) if I choose to go that route. We are praying that he will come on his own before then.
Mike just got back home about an hour ago. It is amazing to me how much Nathan loves him and how you can tell that he really missed Mike. He has been playing with Mike since Mike got home.

There has been a lot of things happening lately in our family. But we have been unable to post due to still not having our computer back (hopefully soon).

Yesterday we went to the Columbia Zoo with some friends. It was a great day. Its so much fun to go to the zoo and see all the animals. Nathan even makes it that much more fun. We'll post some pics when we can.

We were inches away from a gorilla (ok, so it was behind glass, but still just inches away)

doing well

Just a quick note to let you know we are doing well. Mike is enjoying his Sabbatical and time with family. We have been able to relax and get some much needed things done.

We think we are busier now than we have been recently. Funny how that works.

Please keep praying for us. We are still talking to a few churches and waiting to see where God is leading.

Pictures coming, when we can get to a computer and put them on :)
