Coming Up for Air

Chrismation

Every time I think we are turning a corner and getting to a point where we will be settled and things will slow down, something else comes up and more chaos ensues.  Jacob celebrated his 10th birthday in November and today is Hope’s 13th birthday!  I officially have a teenager in the house; pray for me 😉

We were sick most of the rest of November and over the holidays we made an unexpected road trip for a family funeral, which put us behind on several fronts.  We have been trying to find therapists and doctors for everyone, and we are still looking for most of them, especially the specialists we need for Jacob and Hope.  All the appointments take up quite a bit of time; we still aren’t fully unpacked or moved in and the baby is due very soon!

Kyrie needs dental surgery before baby comes, pray for her, poor girl.  She has enamel hypoplasia which is not preventable (or so they say) or treatable, and she is in pain now so we are going in to get that taken care of.  She’ll have to go under general anesthesia just because she is so young.  I should post something on enamel hypoplasia since it’s something we have dealt with extensively for several years now.  But that’s for another day!

On a happier note, we were Chrismated (welcomed into the Orthodox Church) on New Year’s Eve; it was a beautiful service and a huge relief for us.  We are now all taking Communion together as a family, and we are fully incorporated into the Church.

I am in full-on nesting mode now, but I’m too tired to do anything about it.  So perhaps I’ll spend the next few weeks working on the new blog and getting it ready to go since I can do that in bed if I want to :)  I hope you all had a very blessed Christmas season and are enjoying the afterfeast of Theophany (Epiphany) and the celebration of our Lord’s baptism and the tangible revelation of the Holy Trinity to mankind.

Love Always in Christ,
