Determination

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!

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.
