the first of many

Yesterday was a hot mess of activity getting Jeremiah ready to leave early this morning for Haiti, but as I write this he is off and on his way and today will be a much quieter day.

Or not.

There is the whole I have 4 kids thing.

Jeremiah's entire checked bag consisted of:

1) Appox 20 books to keep building the HFHM library.

You know I'm a sucker for books =)

2) Fertilizer

3) A big black box (which is a new computer for UTWWK's van which went kapluey only 1 day after Jim and Debbie's return.)

Not suspicious looking at all.

I have all four kids scheduled at the dentist this week and decided to call in some reinforcements to help with that and the week in general, so my sister and brother, Cate and Caleb, are on their way to be my helping hands until Jeremiah gets back.

Assuming he does make it back and isn't detained for carrying suspicious looking terrorist fertilizer and black box luggage.

This is the first of what promises to be many trips this year, and I have to admit that I am super excited for what this year will bring and what we get to be a part of. Sometimes it just wells up in me and I feel all giddy and wish I were alone so I could do a little freak out dance but then I realize its just my kids around me anyways and so I go ahead and do a little freak out dance and they just look at each other and shake their heads.

True story.

And because I've had several people ask, here are some specific ways you can pray for us:

- For a productive week for Jeremiah as he has a long list of items to attempt to accomplish in a very short amount of time as he works with his parents to organize and lay a lot of the framework for the upcoming year. Writing the words 'productive' and 'Haiti' in the same sentence seems crazy...but hey, crazier things have happened.

- For myself to have energy and creativity with the kiddo's.

- Continued provision for our family.

As always, thank you for praying for us!!!
