It's been 4 months...

It's been about four months since we gave an update on our lives, and quite a few things have happened.

On July 4th we headed to Sea-Tac to board NW airlines and went to The Netherlands! Matthan did so well on the plane, we got all kinds of comments how he should get the best baby award. We were very thankful for how well he did. We had a great time visting with Jaïr's family and it was fun to see Matthan interact with his cousins.

Later that month on July 30th Matthan turned 1 year old! He did such a great job at making the classic mess of cake & frosting everywhere!

In August my oldest brother Ben was married to Anneka. Their wedding was beautiful! We were busy that month preparing for all of the wedding stuff.

September came, and it was the start of routines again. Jaïr started school taking one class in the evening a couple nights a week.

Now it's October, the leaves are changing and there are cold mornings and warm afternoons. We went to Leavenworth last weekend with my brother Chris and his girlfriend Renee. We checked out Oktoberfest. It was fun, but not what we expected. The weather was beautiful that day. And we enjoyed the little bit of Europe that is here in Washington.

The last bit of news is that just before we were leaving to go to The Netherlands, we found out that we are pregnant. The due date is March 7, 2007. We also just found out this week that it's a boy! It will be so fun for Matthan to have a little brother and they'll be close in age...about 20 months apart. We are excited for this addition to our family. We pray that the Lord will prepare us for what is ahead and how to deal with the addition.
