    THank you for taking a minute to send a thoughtful note, Tracy! Yes, living here has shouted to me that Christian wives and mothers have so very many of the same struggles, the same heart issues, the same battlegrounds no matter what our environment. Dirt floor, or granite tile. Washing machine, or wash in river. Disposable diapers, or old t-shirts tied on with string.... sure some of the particular triggers may be different, but the hearts of the matters so often identical. Course, not washing all the laundry by hand can free up some resources for other battles... but the washing machine doesn't solve the problem. Love! Your Abigail is exactly a month older than my Alexander. He's 8/15.

    You can find the tune, although not a particularly good version of it, at the following link: http://www.hymntime.com/tch/htm/j/s/jsomfola.htm Slow it down two about three-quarters of that speed, put pauses at the end of each phrase, and you've got what I wrote to. It's always seemed very mystical to me, as befits a melody written by 13th-century Benedictine monks.

Counting down... (Tracy)

We have less than a hundred days till little Abby gets here! The last trimester starts next week. It's been going by so fast.

Andrew just gets cuter every day. Lately he thinks it's fun to walk around with his arms stretched out and a blanket over his head (so he can't see). Then he giggles every time he runs into something. :) Upon reaching whatever destination he had in mind, he pulls the blanket off and cheers, "Yay, I did it!!"

Our home desktop computer kicked the bucket, so Phillip got a new laptop and I inherited his old one. I am enjoying typing this post from the comfort of our couch. Pretty cool!

Well, not much other new news, but we hadn't posted in 2 months, so it seemed time! Hello pleonast world!

    Hi! Parenthood is awesome, at least when Baby is fed and avoiding volcanic bowel movements.
