My Smart Boy!

Zayde loves books. He goes to his room at least once a day and "reads" his books, jabbering away as he turns the pages. I love to watch him "read"!




Side Note: Please keep Zack and I (and Zayde) in your prayers this week. Zack and I will be leaving Zayde with my sister for a whole week!! We are going to Texas to help with any evacuation needed for Hurricane Ike. Please pray for travel mercies for us as well as a peace and comfort for Zayde (and me:) while being away from Mommy and Daddy for an extended amount of time for the first time ever! Thank you for your faithfulness and devotion to the Lord in prayer!

Zayde is so cute with all of his books! :) I'll keep all of you in my prayers. What a blessing you will be to help so many people in great need!

You have a servant's heart, Amy. I pray the people in Texas will see Jesus in you both and will feel comfort from you being there.

I love to see kids enjoying books.

Sending loving, peaceful, and comforting vibes your way. Have a safe and blessed trip.

How cute is he? He looks like he just got out of the bath with pj's on. I love it when they look clean, with good smelling hair and fresh pj's on (I could be totally wrong but don't burst my bubble :)).

Will keep you in my prayers. You will be so blessed in helping!

He is just adorable and growing up way too fast. We left Brooklynn for the first time when she was 16 months old (business trip to NYC for David) and I had a very hard time, but she did great. I'm sure Zayde will have so much fun! I think it is great that you and Zach are devoting your time to help others in need!

When I went to New Orleans for 9 days I left my boys for the longest time ever. But as hard as it was, it was one of the biggest blessings of my life. Good luck!

So sweet that little Zaydee...and I feel as though I am watching him grow, look at those little curls at the nape of his neck. How sweet!

Amy, you are all in my prayers as you go about the Lord's work. May he watch over you all and keep you.

I thank you for your willingness to aid fellow man. Onward, Christian Soilder!

I love that Zayde likes his book at such a young age. I hope he keeps it up. It warms my heart when a young person loves to read because I love to read as well.

I stopped and prayed for you and I'm asking God to remove anxiety and allow for a smooth week. Thank you for being HIS servant.

Best wishes Amy on your trip to help out other people that you have never meet. I pray that they will appreciate your effects & the time away from your loved ones to assist them. What about your kids in your daycare at your house? I haven't heard that you don't do that any longer. Zach must of enjoyed his trip down there to help, thats great. Hope all goes good for you all. I'm sure Zayde will do just fine. Be safe & my prayers are with you guys.
