pneumonia or pie?

Last week, we were hesitatingly preparing for a pie party to celebrate Janneke's birthday.

Hesitating because both Rachel and Janneke were dealing with colds and fevers that weren't going away.

Janneke's birthday found us at Mac instead - in the ER, getting tests and meds for pneumonia. The pies were consumed slowly over the week by their big sisters, and we are thankful that 7 days later, Rachel and Janneke seem to be on the mend.

Somewhere in the middle of this foggy week -due to lack of sleep and worry over the kids, my first article was published. I have been given the opportunity to write about faith and disability as it relates to our family.  You can read the online version here.
