Earlier this week we went to a small, unmarked tree farm and cut down a much bigger tree than we've ever had in the past. We didn't end up with the tree in this pic, at the last minute Jack and I picked a bigger one that took forever to cut down...
We already appreciate the extra help we've received since moving. Both my parents and Wendi's parents have been amazing since we moved - they frequently stop by and take Jack Jr places, watch the kids so we can continue to unpack, cook, clean, etc...Julie D stops by with food and took Jack on a field trip with her kids last week. (Jack Jr. really loves it here - today he took his 4-wheeler and drove to Avo's house to watch cartoons (our cable isn't in yet)).
Since returning from Hawaii, Cash hasn't really improved. His mental facilities are all there and can tell us the names of everything in his books; it's just his physical abilities seem to have declined the past 3 weeks. We hope it's still the effects of the croup but it's become increasingly difficult to watch him try to crawl and do the things he used to do. You can see him thinking about what he wants to do, it's just his body won't let him. Please pray that he regain some of his balance and movement as we continue to move forward. He has a beautiful smile and if you ask him to show you his teeth, you get the picture below, usually followed by a 'smoochy' face...:-)
It's during the more difficult times watching Cash that we have to trust that much more in God. We know that He created and knew Cash well before he was born and He has a plan for Cash. We know Cash will be healed, whether that is here or in Heaven we don't know. God did not give Cash cancer, but, "...we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
