I'm sorry I haven't been blogging for a few days. This has been a crazy week! I wanted to bring some updates, though . . .
1. Max is here!! Kari gave birth to a healthy little guy Tuesday, the 18th. I could not be more happy about his birthday. It is the same day as my dad's and that means I will never forget it! Ha ha!!! Click here to see a picture of the happy family. Kari seemed to be in good spirits when I talked to her not long after he was born. She didn't have any horror stories about labor, even though she said it was harder than she thought it would be. We are so happy for them! ***Edit: Wouldn't you agree that this little face is just to die for? What a cute nephew I have!! Just wait until he gets big enough for his wolf suit and goes out to make mischief!***
2. In case you didn't find it, my dear friend Jill has a blog now! Many of you who know her have discovered it, but I also want to point out that Jewel and Johanna do as well! These 3 sisters were my pastor's daughters growing up. I love the way the blogging world can keep us all up to date! Please stop by and tell them hello, if you have the chance.
3. I am putting together a list of resources for a friend who is looking for books that build character. Specifically, she wants to find books for her little girl that aren't just fluff and princessyness -- especially as she gets older. I do have a bunch of ideas, but I thought I'd throw it out there to see if you all have recommendations for me. They don't have to be for a girl, or for any particular age. Thanks!
