So, I'm trying to think of a way to explain to you what the last two weeks have been like. So here goes...
1. God has provided us with a place to rent that is everything we've been praying for. It is one floor, it has a washer/dryer hookup, it has a garage for extra storage, a huge back yard for Ally, and rent is exactly the amount that we knew we could afford. Apart from my wife, I've never had a prayer answered so specifically. Did I mention that the house is in a cul-de-sac, so there's no traffic and Caleb can play outside freely? Did I mention that there's no stairs? Did I mention no stairs? Oh yeah.
2. Kara is 7 days away from takeoff. Samaria Rae has been doing somersaults or pilates or something active in there. Apparently she gets hiccups quite often, or Kara has contracted a jumping goiter of some sort. Either way, "thundercats are go" in T-minus one week.
3. Oh, and did I mention that we also prayed that God would provide us with a car (since we no longer live 3 blocks from church) that I could use getting back and forth to work? Yeah, we prayed. Kara told me that when I told her I was praying for a car, she laughed inside (and out loud). Well, God decided to shut us up. A pastor at the church asked me if I wanted his car today (he's been letting me borrow it for a couple weeks). Yeah. I thought he meant TO BUY, but he meant TO GIVE TO YOU WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED. I was speechless. It's a '85 Buick White Boat that gets terrible gas mileage, but it's free. And I like her. And I've decided to name her Isaac. Weird for a "her" but I don't care. Isaac is mine.
4. Caleb is growing too fast. He walks around and says "Uh-oh". Even when he's pointing at Kara's belly, he still says it. Maybe he knows what's coming and his "uh-oh" is actually prophetic. Whatever. He's not a baby anymore. And he is ALL BOY.
