1. Silas is tough stuff. Hardly a week goes by that he doesn't have some new mark or scratch on his little face. My neighbors are always a bit distressed over it. Ex: a nice bruise from a misplaced laundry basket. I'll let you guess which toddler misplaced it onto his brother's forehead:)
2. A few weeks ago, I came across an old recipe for Museli that I used to cook in Africa. It's become quite a hit in our house. Add a little yogurt and it's a fantastic, quick breakfast.
Recipe: 5 c oats, 1 c shredded coconut, 1 c wheat germ, 1/2 c brown sugar, 3/4 c oil. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes. Stir every 10. Allow to cool and store in air tight container.
4. This is what happens every time we put Silas in his baby recliner:
The kid practically crawls out of it. He's a big man now...ready for upright sitting. Or so he thinks.
5. Soon we'll be making a quick trip to Calcutta for David to attend a meeting. I am excited. Hoping to see a glimpse of Mother Teresa's work while we are there.
Intense love does not measure, it just gives. - Mother Teresa
