We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

The Meyers and Incisors

It was a privilege to share this past week with our good friends, the Meyers. They recently returned from Ethiopia with their two adopted sons/brothers. We prayed that we would remain in this part of the country until their return so we could see them and the Lord gave us our request! Our family has also been praying for them through this adoption for the past two years. It was a blessing to see how the Lord has made a way for these boys to be called by a new name and welcomed into a loving family. The Meyer gals and our boys go way back as well and it was fun to see how much they have grown up since the last time we were all together. It was a sweet reunion. We spent the first evening in Natchez, MS, right on the Mississippi River and then traveled to their LA home. Our kiddos had a blast. The parents just about kept up with them~ Six kids and four adults consume quite a few PB&J's! Here they are playing at McDonald's (It was Sunday, so CFA was closed... just in case you were wondering;))
This is where we stayed in Vidalia, LA, right on the water:These are some of my favorites moments during the trip:Jason was so kind to keep the kids (all 6!) twice and give Cara and me two nights out on the town. As you can see, there was no painting-the-town-red involved; shopping, coffee, and a book store is a great thing but great company is even better:)
The wonderful thing about traveling is that we often see the vast, open beauty of creation as we drive along. Each canvas given the lay of the land is unique in some way and makes us appreciate the Creator/Artist more and more. Even the massive man-made accomplishments are a testimony to His glory!

Our big family news before this trip was that Andrew lost his first tooth! He was very brave and tried and tried to pull it himself. He decided in the end that Mommy should do it... As lovely as dislodging tooth from gum sounds, I was a little hesitant. I realized how important to him it was that it just be a thing of the past so with one (or two really quick and close together:)) pulls, it was out! He was very brave~
