As of yesterday we also have a pair of crutches hanging around here! Conrad hurt his foot playing basketball yesterday afternoon. There is a small fracture but they didn't put it in a cast so he has to stay off of it for a few days (or more?). The most frustrating thing for him was sitting in emergency for 6 hours!
My Dad and Mom are coming on Friday! We are really looking forward to seeing them again - it's been a long time since we saw any family! If we do take the post-doc and stay here next year we are really hoping to come to BC for a while this summer, so maybe we'll see everyone then...

Congratulations to my sister and brother-in-law with the birth of their daughter Carolin Hilda Anne! Keep them in your prayers, especially Alisa, who had a difficult time after the birth. Life is fragile and we realize that nothing is in our control. We praise our Heavenly Father who alone controls all things. We pray that the Lord sustains them and that they receive all that they need at this time. I've included the verse Alisa put on her baby quilt - Psalm 139:13-16.
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Anneke and Lukas had all kinds of fun with Conrad. They went to Adventures on Wonderland (an indoor play place), the pool, the Children's Museum and went to McD's one night for supper. Lots of stories to tell. I think they're going to want me to go away again!

We haven't heard anything from the college in Edmonton yet. We thought it would be this past week but I guess it'll be next. In the mean time we dream, wonder, anticipate etc. but we'll wait until we know if they offer a job or not before we make any decisions.
I took a few pictures of the kids today. The first is of Anneke and Lukas listening to a book on CD. Very rarly to we see them all cozy together like this. They play pretty good together but aren't usually very affectionate to eachother (to put it nicely :)). Although...today I was in my room with Tessa and I heard Anneke say, "Let's hug eachother standing up, Lukas, like Mommy and Daddy do".
Here's one of Tessa, just out of the bath. Maybe she'll have curly hair like Anneke did.
And here's Tessa walking with this walker thing. I borrowed this from a friend this week and it only took Tessa a couple tries before going all over the place with it. The only thing is she can't turn it yet so every time she gets stuck she screeches until I come and move it. She's really starting to make herself known. If she's in my arms she'll reach down to try get to the ground and when I put her down she'll get mad because she wants to stand holding my hands! She's growing up...sigh.
