Lukas, of course, had to like this. Ya know, someone blowing a toy right in his face. Ug. At least he is laughing.

He was so proud to show us he dressed himself. That is a polo shirt around his waist. We have been working on this since our last Dr. visit. Ya know, the dr visits where you have time to read all the papers they give you about what your child could be doing, should be doing, and would be doing if he were advanced. : )
Ok, so this pic is out of order, but I seem to have a few moments (a miracle) to keep posting. Doug and I got to have a date to the fair this year. We seem to every year and I look forward to it so much. So, I love a diet coke for a treat which leads me to my little story. Last week Darius and I had a date to my volleyball game. I took him to Walgreens (don't worry-he is only 7 and thinks it is great still) to pick out a treat. He, of course, picked a transformer pez thing. Then I offered a drink too. So we headed to the drink section where he picked out a blue something or another. Then we started to walk off and he said, "wait, mom." Then he went and put his drink back and picked out a diet pepsi and said, "Mom, you deserve a treat this time." I think I tried to freeze time for a moment, but after it didn't work I convinced him to get his blue drink. But I had melted, and it was so fun to be out with my sweet wonderful giving son. Then the story goes on . . .after volleyball that night my dear friend Amy handed me a diet pepsi. Somehow she just knew I needed one. And I sure did.

There was a definate highlight for our Hawaii trip . . .and it was happening in West Virginia. I got an early phone call from my sister Greta. She had started labor for their precious little gift. I don't think I could ever be able to put into words for Greta what it is like to have an older sister like her. She always set a path --and I always wanted to follow. I always knew she was the best at everything. I always assumed that I had a best friend in her, even though I wasn't kind or friendly most of the time. And I have pretty much known from the beginning she would make the most wonderful mother ever. Greta, I love you. This precious little Caleb is a tangible gift of faith -something for me to praise my Savior more seeing His faithfulness again. I am so thrilled for him to be in a family where Christ is Savior. Thank you, Greta, for your faithfulness, example, and forgiveness. You are a wonderful older sis and will make, by God's grace, the most wonderful mother.
