For the last couple of weeks Nathan has been working on potty training. It is WAY past due in my opinion, but the advice I've received from experienced moms is 'do not rush it'. So here we are 3 months away from his 3rd Birthday and the interest is still not completely there. Although today he's gone twice in the toilet!! That's an all time high! Woo-hoo! It took quite a bit of time and waiting around in the bathroom till he went...he just doesn't know yet when he needs to until it's already done. So we waited and waited and waited...then viola he went potty!! When he went we made a BIG deal... lots of hugs, praise, and 'high fives'. If any one has advice please coomment...we can use all the help we can get!

Micah is working on getting new teeth. He's turned into the drool King! He gnaws on his hands all day or a teething ring. Thankfully it doesn't seem to be making him to miserable yet.

Last weekend we invited a couple over and had a great time with our kids & theirs playing together. Danny is working on an outreach program with the husband and I go to a Mother/Child Bible study bi-weekly with the wife. Then this week we invited a newlywed couple over for dinner, she is from my Deutsch class. I gave her a Bible last year and she seems interested in studying together. This weekend another family is coming over to visit...busy, busy.... the good kind!

Thank you to all of you who wrote & told me you were praying for our family during this time of loss. We really appreciate it. It's hard being away from family, but every phone call, email, prayer is very special to us and reminds us of who is really keeping up with us.

Sounds like you are doing all the right things with the potty! The one thing that helped me, and Sonya was the one who told me this: don't put them on a potty chair, use the actual potty so they don't have to learn to go in both. I don't know what you are using, but that sure helped me!! Keep up the good work!! You have GORGEOUS boys!
