I hadn’t let Jerome carry Ian around by himself yet…although Ian is over 16 lbs. now. This afternoon Peter handed the baby over to Jerome’s care and we were impressed with his strength and carefulness. He was absolutely thrilled to be trusted with his baby brother and would tell us if he was getting too tired. I am increasingly aware of his need for my trust.

Here’s the proud brother.



Rain! We got a tiny bit today and the sun shone so bright I thought we’d have a rainbow…but I never saw one. The smell of rain is one of my favorite things. They said it was humid today. It was a very calm, mild day. I enjoyed it very much.

Our landlords were out today too, working so hard taking care of this place. They spread fertilizer around the trees and plowed it under, then ran the water lines out to wash it all down. The sprinklers will be running all night…it sounds like rain.




California State University of Northridge started classes this week…


Jerome builds the neatest stuff…


And Seth is digging and working. 🙂


They say it’s because of a hurricane…


Peter built a bonfire for us and we ate dinner around it together as the moon rose.


“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge .” Ps 19:1-2
