Our Week

I realize I haven't updated here for awhile... It has been a full week of enjoying our little bundle of joy, spending time with company, and practicing music (more on that later). As Bethany is always faithful to have her camera on hand, here are a few moments from the past few days --

Notice those chubby cheeks already!

Grandma Wissmann was able to come and spend an afternoon getting acquainted with Charissa -- and we all enjoyed her visit, too. [smile]

There's nothing quite so wondrous as looking into a baby's eyes...

...and brother/sister moments.

Every autumn we go on 'the hunt' for monarch caterpillars -- and this year we had 3 that plumped up and made beautiful jeweled chrysalis' at our kitchen windowsill. And we've been waiting and watching for the exciting moment.

Well, yesterday it happened! Our first butterfly made its appearance with all the grace and beauty of God's handiwork. Isn't it amazing how God can change things?!

And finally -- enjoying moments with friends.

"For this reason also, we do not cease to pray for you...that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God."
Colossians 1:10

What a fun week! When I talked to the Sahlstrom kiddos in Colorado, they were pretty excited to be going to see you all. I have to say that I am a little jealous they got to see your newest addition, but the pictures are holding me over (thanks Bethany!).

I will be praying for you all this week as you head to the studio! How exciting--can hardly wait to hear it.
