Today I’m blogging over at Not Alone about the blessing of having biblical traditions a part of every day family life. I’d love to hear your traditions!
Life is moving quickly here at the Dedert range. Calvin has had a fantastic summer of good health. I think it was almost 8 weeks of no lung infections, glorious! Yesterday he became sick very suddenly with a lung infection; it’s astounding how much his condition can change in a few hours. Last night as we worked continuously with him, trying to ease his breathing, we breathed thanks for the wonderful weeks we have had with him.
Because he has been feeling so good for so long (8 weeks is some sort of record!), we were able to witness new things he was doing. We stood around with absolute joy watching him kick his legs and swing his arms vigorously while giggling when Darryl came home from work. His awareness of us was at an all time high and he tried so hard to participate in every way his little body allowed him. We have spent most of our summer evenings being beside him and soaking up the delight that he gives with every ounce of his being. I think we are beginning to understand the meaning of the word “cherish”. We’ve been remembering to take videos on the camera more often, catching many of these happy moments.
We had planned to send Calvin to school a few mornings a week, he loves it! All of it is contingent on his health, the Lord knows.

The other three littles have had a fantastic summer:
Darryl and I have been hard at work on a side business, the Common Table. His arms are having to stretch a little farther around me each month.
