Out of the mouth of a six year old.

Tonight before family prayer I asked all the kids how they have seen the hand of the Lord in their life today. Baden shared this experience from his personal scripture reading. For a minute I forgot he was six years old. I had him repeat his experience again so I could have it on video.

9 months

Time has flown! The saying: time flies when you're having fun, is absolutely true. The last 4 months have gone so much faster than the first 4 months after Clara's diagnosis. So here is my monthly update because we are too busy to do much more than that. Yes, the pictures are mostly of Clara and Kate. My two girls are my only willing subjects, plus they are home with me the most.

Clara is practically perfect in every way. She's also perfectly two. There isn't any real hint she is almost three. I have to keep reminding myself that for about 6 months she had quite a bit going on and so she has some things to catch up on. Try as I may, potty-training can wait I suppose :) She's home, happy and seems perfectly healthy and that's all that matters!
We love her hair! So stylish and so soft.  

I thought it was so funny when I caught her on the cushion-less couch she had just been jumping on thumbing through The Entitlement Trap. Really, the picture says it all. 

Aspiring pianists. One of their favorite activities.
Baden reading Kate The Old Testament reader before bed. I'm so happy I don't have to miss out seeing moments like this.
When the mail comes you can find them both in this spot. Don't you love the wedding dress-up?
LIVESTRONG PINK! Her favorite shirt. 

We are so grateful she is still living strong. So thankful. 

Clara had a doctor's visit last week here with one of the oncologists from Spokane and she thought Clara looked, sounded and felt great. We couldn't agree more. In two more months we will have another follow-up with Dr. I, he also wanted to get some blood work done the week before to go over. We will pray all will continue to be well with our little miracle.
