Thank-you again for all your notes. There are many times when I wish I could respond directly to the ones you leave here on the blog!
Rachel is still doing quite well. She has had a funny sleep schedule lately, probably because of her cold. One night she was awake for four hours straight, that silly girl. And there have been brief periods of time when she seemed bluer but we have had no sudden wake up calls at night. She has had some wonderful long naps during the day too (still within the normal range) and she has been so much easier to take care of. We have been able to do alot more this week than usual because of this! Also, Ethan went to DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School) this week at his old preschool. (they did a fabulous job!)
However, this morning Rachel really wanted to be held and I couldn't get anything done! Thankfully the older ones were happily occupied and so I decided that instead of being frustrated - I would take the time to enjoy her! And so we sat and listened to Fernando Ortega's new CD and looked through pictures on the computer together. His music has ministered to me so deeply in our journey with Rachel and I love the new cd too! Just wanted to share the news with you:)
We don't have respite tonight because our weekend worker is getting baptized today at a church camp in Medicine Hat!!! A wonderful reason to not have respite. We are so happy for her! We are so glad too for the people God has brought into our lives because of Rachel, and the stories we have been priviledged to hear and know. We feel rich in friendship.
