Habu's turn

Tuesday, October 18, 2011


Three years ago, Will got to go to sleep away camp with school.  I remember being a nervous wreck.  We were new to the school and Will had not gone away for any sleep-away camps yet.  Now, it is Harry's turn.  Luckily, both boys have spent some more time away at camp so I am more relaxed.  This is a great opportunity for the 5th graders as it is through the school and it helps them spread their wings before middle school.

So, this week nature is their classroom.  And it is a great week here for that.  We FINALLY got a cool front and the weather is fabulous---cool and crisp at night (40's and 50's) with highs in the low 70's during they day (that is as fall-ish as it gets here!)

Kate was NOT happy that her beloved "Habu" was going away for a few days.  She does not like when her brothers go away.



Harry is so sweet to Kate.  They had some cuddles this morning.


One last hug...It was picture day for Kate so she did not have to wear her uniform.



  1. oh you can just see the sweet spunky spirit in his beautiful eyes!
    i've been praying for him & will continue. let's chat this week if you have a moment. heading out the door with madi now, she may have a broken nose...anyway....love the shot of them hugging with kate holding onto his tshirt. such sweet little ones you're raising.

  2. He is so cute! Kate and her brothers remind me so much of Maddy and her brothers too!

    Will keep him and your family in my prayers!


    P.S. Enjoy your fall -- hard freeze predicted with low of 29 here tonight!! BRRRR!

    Lifting your little guy up His Creator :)
    P.S. These pictures of Harry are just spectacular! He is soooo handsome - I LOVE that sweet smile of his ;)

  11. Oh he is too precious with Kate. I am praying, I can't imagine how you must feel. Please know that I am serious about praying for him. I will be laying Him at the Lord's feet each day my friend.

    Hope you all have a lovely autumn!

  16. What a wonderful adventure for Harry...I will be praying for him. Those pictures are just so sweet!

  17. You can just see Harry's beautiful spirit in his eyes! He's one sweet, sweet boy. I'll keep him (and you) in my prayers. I, too, live with a very serious and very complex medical condition. It's amazing, though, how powerful something as simple as prayer can be. Keeping you all in my thoughts and wishing you the best.

  18. We thought of you guys every time the monorail took us past The Polynesian. I can't believe that was already a year ago!

    I love the last picture of Habu and love that Kate calls him that.

    Talk to you soon.

  19. God bless Harry and the whole family. Praying for you!


Thank you for your kindness.
