The call you hate to get at work....



I got a call that Eli bumped his head at recess. Dave went to check it out and it is a doozie.

He has quite a big goose-egg and road rash on his face. He keeps swirling his finger around to tell us that he is dizzy and holding his belly. I am sure he has a concussion.

After watching him for a bit I think he will be fine. I am surprised how much parent intuition we have have with him.

He is watching the Chinese DVD The Incredibles - I am hoping that he will rest for a bit. I am glad that he finds us and home comforting when he is hurt.

i hope he is feeling better today ...

Uganda will be very different than China in many ways ... The fees are much less, and wait time could be less, but there are no guarantees on that and definitely not all the paperwork !!! ... we got our referral 2 weeks after our application was sent in ... We shall just see how the Lord directs this path ... I am sure in few months I can answer this much better ...

Have a blessed day sister

Holy Cow! That looks like he took quite the digger! I hope he is feeling better. We tried to Skype you this afternoon (Sun morning here) but you were not online. Anyway, we are going exploring today. I hope to have pictures soon.
Love, Jill, Macie & Casey.
