The Shortest Blog Post There Ever Was

8 (eight)
The number of totes sitting in our dining room, waiting to be filled with our things, our lives in Moshi

3 (three)
The number of Sundays we have left to attend our amazing church.

80 (eighty)
The number of supporters we still need to make a monthly commitment.

25 (twenty-five)
The amount we've set as a goal for each monthly supporter to contribute

The prayer we have - the one prayer - is that God would use us to bring his Kingdom to the Earth.

Sweating the Small Stuff {in black&white}

It's a common saying, "Don't sweat the small stuff."
But it's the small stuff that I want to remember.

The way you cross your feet when they hang from your seat.

The way you eat your 'cer-cer with milk'

and then drink the milk from the bowl when you're finished...

then look over at me and grin with your almond-milky lips because you caught me taking your picture yet again.

The way you are in awe with water and the different ways you can manipulate it.
The way you always tell papa to 'get dressed' when he gets home from work, and eagerly wait for his shirt to come off so you can try it on, then put it in the laundry hamper.
There are so many little things, my sweet little bear.  And I want to remember them all before you're not so little anymore.
So you can keep smirking at me while I snap my camera as you eat your breakfast, you can think I'm silly when I bring the camera into bath time.  I'm just capturing all the small stuff that makes you who you are, and makes me love you even more than I could ever imagine.
