Nash has been showing signs of determination and independence this week. He made me laugh when I was washing some dishes in the kitchen yesterday. All of the sudden he ran out of the kitchen towards his play room. A few moments later he emerged carrying his step stool which is almost as big as he is. He had a look of determination in his eyes and walked with the stool in hand with much confidence. He placed the stool right where I had been standing and climbed up. Success!  

Carrying the stool. Look how determined his eyes are! 


placing the stool strategically…


Success! Um, now what? 


Bryson spent last week in Haiti meeting pastors and ministry leaders. He had a great trip and brought back some beautiful images of the people and country. Here are a few of my favorites.
