  • The kids and I were hit -- the flu. One week, and I am just now recovering. I feel fine now, but I have a lot of drainage/phlegm. Micaiah's the last one fighting it. Ricky remained unscathed. He took care of us all last week. He just kept saying, "This is some virus!" ;) No doctors, no hospitals, no medicine... just natural healing, immune-boosting stuff. Great resource here. [And yes, we are still anti-flu-vaccine; we believe that the vaccine actually makes one more susceptible to getting the flu.]
  • Right after returning home from our trip, Micaiah was so excited to be home that he crawled over to the couch and pulled himself up for the first time! Now, he's cruising a little :)
  • At one year (a month ago, I know I'm behind), Micaiah measured 29" long and weighed 18.6 lbs.
  • Aolani is going around and singing her words/responses!
  • Ricky told Aolani to 'hold your horses' the other day, and she walked over to her donkey, picked him up, and said, "Okay." :)
  • We received a big shipment of diapers in the mail, and the box and packing paper provided days of fun... houses, tunnels, dress up...

  • Verse to memorize this week: Proverbs 4:23 ~ Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
