SUMMER!!


Summer is here and we are having a good time. We went to the zoo on our first day off. We went stroller free! This summer is going to be great because the kids are now old enough to walk on their own, not have to go to the bathroom every 5 minutes and can usually all be entertained by the same things.

We went to a Mwangaza concert. We wondered if they would remember us. They did and the kids enjoyed catching up!

We went to Corpus for the weekend. Mark's granddad celebrated his 95th birthday surrounded by family! He is a great man and does really well for a man of his age. Mark's mom does an awesome job of making people feel special. She entertained a house full of people so that granddaddy could see all his grandkids and greatgrandkids on his birthday. That is no easy job since we are a crowd of 21! She sacrificed time, energy, money and most of all peace and quiet to have us in her home! We are thankful to have been included in the celebration.


We came back to Waco so that Evan could attend a theater camp. He is really enjoying it! This is the first time that Evan has done something that Drew has never done. He is so proud to be independent. He is also nervous about memorizing his lines for the play on Friday. Mark is going on a business trip and I am trying to plan a surprise party for Evan. We've got lots of bad birthday memories to erase from last year. As the first guest arrived to Evan's party last year, he had a huge seizure, threw up and walked around in a daze for the rest of the party. The kid has had a really rough year. We weren't sure what our situation would be like a year from that moment. We were told to keep our eyes open for neurological degeneration. We feel very fortunate to be where we are today. We still struggle with issues but we are grateful for how far God has brought us.

Everyone is invited to come join in the birthday fun. We'd love to let Evan know who loves him and who has been praying him through this tough year. Looking forward to having a healthy and happy seven year old!
