It's been a while since I posted so I just wanted to give you an update. Do not worry - the lack of blog posts is not because we are depressed or miserable; it's just because we've been busy and haven't made the time to sit down and put our experiences into words. We are doing well and are quite happy. I hope to get some thoughts processed and written down to share with you guys soon.
Erik is in the US this week for his pediatric surgery oral board exams. He arrived safely on Friday and is studying for his test that is on Tuesday morning. I know he would appreciate your prayers as it is an extremely stressful testing experience. He is looking forward to being done with it and we are looking forward to his return (with lots of chocolate chips) next weekend.
We have once again added a pet to our family, even though we said we were not going to have any pets. Mocha is a sweet old dog that has been passed from missionary family to missionary family and she is now ours. She is a calm dog who loves to be around people and will even tolerate our cat and 2 year old. I don't think she is going to make a very good watchdog since the only time she barks is when the cat tries to steal her food, but she is a great companion.
