Mild colds, only - please keep praying!

So far the kids are holding their own. David and Will have actually had this cold the worst. Seth seems fine, and we pray that continues. They should be past the worst of it! Our gratitude is truly overflowing. To know that every little cold at this altitude will NOT land Seth or Gracie on oxygen is a blessing!!

I'm sorry I've been so bad about blogging recently. I mean to every night, and every night it gets too late or there is too much else to do. Cleaning up last night took literally 3.5 hours - from 7:30 until 11:00! I never sat down at all, save to read a couple of books to David. I did organize the Tupperware cabinet, however, which wasn't absolutely necessary, but it was driving Gavin crazy that nothing seemed to have a lid. :)

Isaac "hides" from the babies under his blanket. They love the game!

I found Seth and Will in the dryer one day when I was here by myself and distracted by folding clothes.

Isaac pushing the kids around the living room. It's a heavy, hard job, but they all seem to enjoy it - even Isaac!

Five happy kiddos. David's nose is scratched from trying to take his four-wheeler down the front porch steps and hitting the cement. Ouch.

Friday morning. The girl to the left is a sweetheart who lives here at Ukarumpa and comes to help me most days just because she loves babies. She's a great cook/baker, too, even though she's only 11!

David built this LEGO creation. Seth was very admiring.
