We have been so, so, so busy. All last week I was thinking, oh good, next week we'll finally be less busy. Sunday night Eric started to feel sick and went to bed at 8pm. Monday morning we both woke up sick. Thank goodness for Ellie, Eric's mom, for taking the kids yesterday, letting them spend the night, and watching them this morning. I think we caught the flu from Eric's brother, who wasn't feeling good while he was here. Eric feels good today and I feel much better, but still a little tired and weak.
Two weeks ago we went to Clear Lake with my mom and sister for a few days. We had a fun time swimming, walking around, playing Pee Wee Golf (Judah loves to say that), and eating. Unfortunately I've been really bad at taking pictures lately and so has Eric. Here is one with all of us.

The Friday and Saturday after we got home we went to a re-encounter, which is an encounter for leaders. It was amazing and powerful and I had deliverance like I have never experienced in my life. I literally felt like a weight was lifted off my body after leaving.
Everyone from Chico that went
All of the girls with Pastor Margarita (2nd from the left) who led the re-encounter with her husband, Pastor Andrew. They are on Pastor Cesar's 144 and are from Bogota, Columbia
The next day was Father's Day and baby dedications. Judah has already been dedicated, but we had him up there with us to dedicate Samuel. They would not, for the life of them, stay still. They would wiggle and scream and it was getting a little crazy. It's funny now, though!

Eric's brother Scott and his wife, Caroline were here for, what seemed like, a super quick trip. It was fun hanging out with them, though. One day we went downtown and let the boys play in the fountains.

We went to the park with some of the girls from my cell group and their friends. Very fun!
Samuel saying "cheese" and smiling for the camera. Too cute! With Anabelle in the background.
Judah playing with sticks. I have more pictures of Samuel nowadays because Judah is too busy to stay still! :)

And on the baby swing
