Hi everyone. This is my attempt to stay awake while Jake watches the Super Bowl. Yes, a day late. I could just tell him that I know the Saints are going to win [thank you, Facebook friends, for ruining that one for me! Haha...] and we could just go to bed... but I will be nice. I figured I would post our daily schedule so you can see what a typical day looks like around here. I also posted a few more pictures. Enjoy!

[meet "mama dog." sweetest thing ever!]


Prayer request: Jake was playing soccer [excuse me, 'football'] with some of the guys tonight before dinner and rolled his ankle. It's pretty swollen and he's in a lot of pain. As you can imagine, being here involves a lot of walking... and I hate seeing him in pain. He is such a trooper, though. Please pray for him, that the Lord would heal him quickly [if it is His will, of course]! He and I both would really appreciate it. Thanks!!
