Well, this is my first try at blogging. I hear it is very therapeutic. I hope for this to also be a way for people back home (Arkansas) to keep up with Mili Bear updates.
Right now I am enjoying the silence, Mili is napping. That little lady has sure found her voice...again and again...all day long. We have had an interesting week this week. We are still awaiting our play pen that we sent Fedex when we were visiting Arkansas almost two weeks ago. Due to the fact that we have had no play pen in the apartment for almost two painfully long weeks, we have had a live wire all over the place. She is quick on her knees and pulling up on everything in sight these days.
Mili is not the only one that has been running (in her case crawling) around like crazy since we returned to Maryland. Brian has been busy at the church. He lead worship the Wednesday night after we returned on that Monday for the International Worship time and then taught our Sunday Life Group last Sunday. Last night we both worked in our Family Fun Festival. So for any of you that were concerned about us being involved in another church like we were at home, no worries here. Word gets out quickly around her and nothing seems to be a secret with our Family.
We are making friends and enjoying our church here. (Well, there goes the silence....Mili is awake and the neighbors know about it). Brian and I are hit and miss serving now but hope to be in more permanent positions when the new school year starts. Brian wants to serve in one of the Worship Teams and I would love to be teaching (which grade is the question now). I miss teaching so much.
Can't be much longer because Mili is tearing up the house and I don't feel like cleaning it all up after her. I have been known to do that when I needed to get some work done the past two weeks. She had everything off her changing table shelves in the floor and working on getting into the drawers (the computer is also in there). She wanted to "work " on my shelves too but I decided I better take her to the hall and "lock" her up (put up the fence and close the doors to all the rooms). When I do this, my silence is truly over. She doesn't like the hall and I can't use the phone at all if she in the hall. Brian and I tried to eat dinner with her in the hall last night. Bad mistake....we couldn't carry on a conversation at all. Oh well, the joy of raising children (child....and I say I want more????) We do want more......when.....don't know.
Got to go for now.....I hope this helps to connect our family and friends back home with some fun info about our family and especially our precious Mili Bear.
Love ya all
