I've had a busy day or two.
Yesterday we had People come over,
one of whom Daniel didn't like, so I had to hold him the whole time they

Today was Cedwryck's birthday.

Today we had the 1st annual Cedieval games. There was rock
throwing at the frozen pond (keep one eye closed at all times), Sword
fighting (thrusting only, with both eyes closed, and only when standing
on one foot), Angry Birds (by rolling marbles at plastic animals on
Jenga blocks), Archery (with a wooden bow and a PVC arrow), Face Making
(the tongue must protrude at all times), and the Obstacle Course (go
round, round, round the see-saw). The main rule was "the rules are made
up and the points don't matter."
In the midst of that, we found out that our friend fell off a scaffold and crushed both his heels. He had surgery this morning. I tried to help them locate a wheelchair, but couldn't find what they needed, so they will rent one. My heart is heavy as I think of their needs, but I know God is good and they do have a strong support system within their family and their church.
