we welcomed kristie &
headed back for the 5pm service.

henry’s self-portrait of
how gorgeous his face looks,

did we mention that on our way
to church last week
(redeemer’s last evening of worship @ first baptist)
he had a scooter accident &
ended up with stitches in his lip and
a hugeswollen abrasion all the way
to his eye? it was a mess. mess!

he missed school on monday
but was back on tues, but in
such bad shape that people were
cringing & calling me to see if he
was okay.

his secret weapon?
