Lets go daddy!
Sweetest boy ever!!
Those eyes! were in big trouble. she can be a stinker!
Our sweet blessings.
She loves the computer. TROUBLE and pushing buttons.
Lambert just left me alone with her while she is napping, I am praying she doesn't wake up while they're out... Did I mention we are ready to be home??? Well we are. It has been a wonderful experience here in Guangzhou, but we are done... we want bbq and fajitas. We had a romantic idea of taking her for Chinese when we arrived in Texas... NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. We won't be eating Chinese for a while. Libbie is doing great. Day by day she reveals another layer of herself to us. We say everyday how we are amazed at her will and determination. She wants to do everything herself and then she looks to daddy to make sure he marvels at her success. She always hangs on to food no matter what. As long as she has food in both fists she is ready for anything. Hoot continues to amaze us too. He is such a great kiddo. I know this trip has been hard on him and at times he's had some meltdowns. We wouldn't have it any other way than having him with us. He's experienced so much and really feels a part of it all. He got to take his first taxi ride today which he thought was totally awesome. He can't wait to share all his experiences with his friends back at school.
We have done all that we know to do here on the island and we are going stir crazy. I confirmed our flights today so we are ready to go. I have all the goodies purchased and just a few more things to do on my checklist. I am so intrigued by the culture and the people in Guangzhou. We have seen sights that we could never have dreamed and it has been good for all of us. When we first talked about travel Lambert really didn't want to come. I am so glad that he did and that we experienced this together. There is no way I could have communicated everything to him. It's been good for our marriage. I feel closer to my family than ever. We are a little four unit family drawing close to each other and closer to the Lord. Hoot has sung so many hymns while were out and about today he sang "Oh no you never let go through the calm and through the storm Lord you never let go of us" How fitting and appropriate for this little journey we've been on. I think I have hummed Great is thy faithfulness everyday... I can't sing to save my life but i can make a joyful noise for certain!
I' ve taken more photos than I can share. I made the mistake of buying a new camera the day before we left... i don't recommend doing that. A lot of my shots have been blurry or the ISO was off... what was I thinking... well i know what i was thinking... I can figure this out on the plane ride over. I'll have nothing better to do... well most of the learning comes by trial and error. I don't think the other passengers would have approved the flashes while I tried out my new toy!
We are so grateful for the prayers and support. We truly have felt them and the peace that has come from them is amazing... Amazing his how I would describe our entire experience. I have been amazed every second of every day. Amazed by my husband, my son, my family and friends, the people here, the culture, MY BIG BIG God!! We have discovered through this adventure just how small we are and how very big He is. I have witnessed just how much better his ways our than my ways. He has a plan for each of us and he will provide if we will but just follow and submit.
shes awayke!!!! PRAY.....
I am still clinging to psalm 34. He will take away my fear and with him anything is possible. How great is that?
