And making a come back…well that is yet to be seen but we’ll give her a go. So, lots have happened over the last couple of months so lets get started.
Our first update takes us to Zoe. WAY back in October our little girl turned 7! She loves to dress up and change the earrings in her newly pierced ears but is just as eager to run through the mud and splash in puddles. She loves to watch the show Dirty Jobs. I always laugh at this but she loves it. Out in the chicken house one day she was overheard saying “Yep, this is a dirty job. This is Zoe Thames and this is my job.” She continued on narrating each step as she cleaned. She also thinks the host, Mike Rowe, should take a vacation so she can host the show.
This last year brought much growth in height, shoe size (a women’s 6!!!), responsibility, school, and eagerness to learn about the Lord. Over Christmas she was found sitting around the dinner table with 4 men engrossed in conversation (and yes she was conversing) about Christ. It was a blessing to witness.
Another new thing we are experiencing with Zoe is sarcasm! I don’t know where she gets that from but it has been a funny development in her humor. Just the other day she had changed her shirt midday and I said “oh, did you change your shirt?” She very nicely and naturally replied “No, it just shrunk and turned pink.” After I picked my jaw up off the floor I bust out laughing. Yep, I had opened that door wide open and she just waltzed right in.
That’s all for today. You wouldn’t believe how long it took for this one to get posted today so I’m not going to embarrass myself by telling. Plus, I need to start building up a little suspense :O)
