  • Whew! What an exhausting weekend! We all met Ricky's parents for lunch and exchanged Aolani, then headed to Micaiah's doctor appointment (his leg looks great) one day. After my mom and Micaiah left the next day, Ricky and I went to a friends' house to swim in their pool, relax, read, and play Boccé ball :) On the Sabbath, we visited a local Hmong church (and they were so welcoming and gracious), went to a friend's birthday party, and fellowshipped with our small group. Labor Day was filled with labor (but from home).
  • When the nurse showed Micaiah to his room, he sadly said, "No more body cast." :(
  • We were going around the dinner table several nights ago and quizzing Micaiah on genders. "Daddy boy. Grandma girl. Aolani girl. Micaiah boy. Mommy sweetheart." He did this three times! My heart just gushed...

    • Verse passage I'm still memorizing: Revelation 21:1-7 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.
