« Simon's First Christmas | Main | Happy New Year »

December 31, 2008



Eric and I love aquariums and have been to the Long Beach (Aquarium of the Pacific), Oregon Coast, and Monterey Bay aquariums (Oregon Coast on a number of occasions). In fact, we spent all day on our 5th wedding anniversary at the Monterey Aquarium - so we agree that they are fun for adults and children alike!

Hi Emily,
I came to your blog from Renee's. I love reading about their children.
I am sick in bed with a sinus infection and I started reading your blog. I don't usually have time as I help our daughter homeschool her four children. Caleb 10, Julien 7, Ilana 5 and Sadie 3. I teach them arts and crafts and etiquette. So you can see I keep busy during the day.
I got so interested in your blog I went all the way back to 2006, before you had Simon and were practically newlyweds. I enjoyed it so much. It took my mind off my aching head. I will be a regular follower now if that's OK with you.

First off, Simon is a darling! He is beautiful! I thought my 8 grandkids were the most beautiful in the world but Simon is pretty close!

I do have a couple questions. You never explained why you went to Kenya. I assumed it was through your church. Also, are you planning to adopt some children like Renee did? Is this why you went to foster care classes. These may be too personal but I feel that I know you now since I've spent the entire day and part of the evening with your family.

Your blog is lovely and so uplifting. I look forward to sharing everyday.
I live in Atlanta, GA with my dear, God fearing, husband of 35 years.

Have a wonderful New Years Day!
God Bless you and your family.

I love aquariums too. There is a fantastic one in Seward,Alaska. Actually it is The Alaska SeaLife Center and they nurture sea animals back to good health and do a lot of research but it is also open to the public. This was quite a field trip and you've peaked my interest in going again. Thanks for sharing your positive experience.
