Just wanted to say…I’m so encouraged by so many of the comments left on my last blog entry. It is so refreshing to hear that so many of you are in a similar place and have the same thoughts and feelings. Thank you for taking the time to share your hearts and encourage me. How thankful I am for each one of you.

A few pictures to make you smile this Friday…

Save your drama from a llama…

The church that my kids take their fine arts classes at on Tuesdays had a little petting zoo on Tuesday! I fell in love with this llama, and we called Rico Suave to see if he’d let us have a pet llama. He laughed–so I looked on Craig’s list and found one on sale–but then I discovered they are classified as livestock so our HOA probably won’t allow it. JUST ANOTHER REASON why the Young’s need to live on a farm;)

I know I posted this on Facebook…but you must see too:) I don’t think I posted it here anyway…did I??? The kids were so bummed last week to not have daddy here–but each day it seemed there was SOMETHING that surprised us to get their minds side-tracked and excited. One night we had dinner out and ran into a bunch of firemen…which my kids think are like celebrities. P-man could hardly eat his dinner asking questions about them–and he got brave and asked for a picture with them too…(Isaac was on a date with Aunt April)…

We are back in the swing of things with daddy home, BUT we have been busy back and forth on the phone with our dear friends in Zambia. Please continue to pray for the Chanda family! I got to talk to the little ones yesterday and catch up with their momma today–and I’m thinking I may be squeezing in a trip BEFORE the Created for Care retreat in January. I’ve decided our lives are officially crazy–but there’s no other way I’d want to live…and I’m so thankful I’m not alone–and we have the honor of doing life and living crazy with so many of you too!!! (By the way–you know you don’t have to have already adopted or even be in the process of adopting to join us at the Created for Care retreat! If you want to come…there’s still some room for March–and we’d love to have you join us! for more details!)

The first pet we “acquired” when we got married and lived in CO….was a llama. We had so much fun the first few minutes we had him. It was downhill from there. He actually had “bazerk male syndrome” (yea, a for real llam condition) and we had to put him down. Llama’s are a lot more fun in petting zoos! I think that precious one you are petting is actually an alpaca….which are a lot smaller and more gentle. They are precious and soft!
