Long, Dusty Days

Melody is quite happy with her dad's new happenings at work.  She starts licking his shoes, pants, hands, etc as soon as he walks in the door. 

Today we taught Sunday school.  When we were taking prayer requests, one girl told us about a sister of her friend who was really sick.  Through a few questions and later a phone call, we realized that this was the daughter of a couple in our small group.  Their preschool-aged daughter had already been sick for four days when we met last Tuesday.  Turned out her appendix had ruptured a week ago!  She was taken to a children's hospital 1 1/2 hours away.  Her dad seemed relieved to at least know what is going on ( the past week and a half they had been in and out of the doctor's office and all they heard was "It's just constipation").   Later this week she will have surgery to clean out her abdomen and then hopefully will go home.  I was scared when I got sick this spring, I can't imagine being that little and going through the same thing.  Please keep her in your prayers.

After Sunday school we went to church and then Adam left for work.  I went over to a new friend's house (she and her husband are in our small group too) and us and her 1 year old daughter when to our church's fall festival.  It was way too warm, but the leaves at the park were GORGEOUS!  Yummy hot dogs and caramel apples.

Adam's biggest excitement of the day was a new haircut.  It had been getting pretty shaggy.

Another week started.  Another week of waiting for directions.
