After playing with him, posing for pictures and a tummy rub, he fell into an exhausted sleep all stretched out right next to us. So we scooped him up and put him in the middle of a pile of his sleeping brothers and sister in the little pen they have set up outside for the puppies.
But as we sat there watching him sleep, he looked over and slowly began creeping over to our voices, away from his brothers and sisters. Yep, he's ours.

One of Noah's spelling exercises has him fill in the blanks to sentences with the word that makes the most sense. Here is one example of such a sentence:
"Joseph told the Pharaoh the meaning of his __________"
Noah's spelling words for this week included the word dream........
but no...... that didn't work..... what word did Noah think made sense?

Last night was pretty typical. Until ..............
One of Sarah's good friends, Derek, fell about 40 to 50 feet yesterday while climbing some tall pine trees in the backyard of the house where we meet. A few of his friends, including Sarah, were watching him climb and saw the fall. His twin brother, Evan, among them ran straight to the house and hollered for help. Akir, Sarah, and Curran were first on the scene and soon after adults started arriving.
We have 4 or 5 doctors that attend the church, 3 of them were there last night and another doctor was visiting friends of his who live next door to where we all were. So instantly there were 4 doctors on the scene, along with his Mom.
An ambulance unit came, with a fire truck and a helicopter. Derek was looked over and stabilized then air lifted to the hospital.
As of midnight last night he was okay. Here is the email update I received on him:
"The bottom line is that Derek still has a good bit of pain and is being kept over night at the hospital in K-town. The CAT scan showed all his major parts are OK (Head, spine, organs) but his lungs were bruised – probably from the impact when he landed. This is what we need to pray about. The doctors are monitoring that to see if it worsens; his oxygen counts are lower than what they should be for someone his age. They’ve got him in his own room in ICU, and Sandy (his mom) is staying with him overnight"
Sarah is pretty shaken up. I think everyone is.
I ask for your prayers for Derek especially. Also for Derek's family. I will update my blog when I know more.
Here is a picture taken earlier this year of Curran, Derek, and Sarah.
You can check out THIS post to see pictures of Derek and his family.
