Welcome to our blog. We are leaving for S.E. Asia on November 16th. Right now, we are in the process of packing, getting our house ready to leave all winter, finding babysitters for my plants, and setting up my blog. There is a lot to think of when leaving home for an extended period of time! We are all really excited about it. But, in case you need something to pray about, both of the boys came down with colds this morning, and just now I am beginning to feel a persistent irritation in my own throat! I am SURE that I am not getting sick, it is probably just the power of suggestion. Guess I will have to add taking GSE, and anything else I can think of , to my list of things to do.
