Each fall, our church collects food for the local food shelf. For the second time, Mya has shown up with her little shopping cart full to the brim with lots of good food that kids enjoy. She and Tami did a little advertisement as the kick off for the event, titled "Share the Bounty".
No matter where you live, your food shelf needs your help. Please make a donation. Many children go to school hungry, causing them to have a difficult time learning. Many elderly, on fixed incomes have used food shelves in difficult times.
I'm also going to put out an appeal, for everyone who is able, to donate blood to your local blood bank. With the holidays coming, and due to shortages, it is crucial for anyone who can give to give.

Our SW emailed today to tell us that we were Logged into the China adoption system on Sept 21, 2006. Truthfully, I was hoping it was sooner than that because the LID is truly the beginning of the countup to referral. With referrals taking a minimum of 15 months, we will be doing well to see Lily's face for Christmas of 2007. I'm trying to be excited but when something is that far out in life, it feels unreal.

It started with a simple cough and moved into my lungs. Now I'm coughing up ugly stuff in the mornings and have lost my voice. Some may think that is funny. Don't worry, I can still croak out what I have to say.
Mya's flu, on the other hand, just came on out of no where. Standing in the kitchen, she throws up her apple juice. I had no idea she even felt bad. Afterward, she tells me her tummy hurts. Go figure.

Today Keith and I will see an attachment specialist. The behavior we are seeing could be normal 2 yr old or attachment issues. We felt best to talk to a professional to make sure what it is. As would be exptect, the closer we have gotten to the appointment, the less we have seen the behavior. Why does that always seem to happen?

Carrie's aunts, on my side, threw her and Jon a shower. It was very nice. Everyone brought recipes for Carrie. They were very generous. All of the shower items are stored in Carrie's room for now. They will be finding an apartment in either Duluth or Superior pretty soon and will move everything in after the wedding.

It was nearly 80 degrees here today. The trees are bright yellows, oranges, and reds. It is a beautiful time of the year. With a rain or some wind, those leaves will fall and Mya will be jumping in them. Soon we will host a bonfire for all of the church to attend. It's one of the highlights of the year.
