Miles in his new "Big Boy" stroller

John took this picture of the sunset toward the end of our walk

Tonight we went to Mike and Stacy's house for dinner to celebrate Wes's 19th birthday. Yep, his last one before boarding the plane to Ghana. He has been practicing eating with his right and not his left (which he normally does, being left handed and all) because in Ghana you mostly eat with your hands. Your right hand is for eating and your left hand is for wiping your bum bum. It is considered unclean to eat with your left hand. We don't know if this custom is as important today with improved sanitation, but all the same, he's practicing. AND..... John figured out how to post videos!!!!! yeeee haaaa!! He's so proud of himself (now we'll see how well he does installing Miles new seat in a few minutes, he he). Below are two videos. One of Miles walking behind a push toy, and the other with him playing on the table with Mike and Stacy. I can't believe how fast he is growing up :(

Also this week, John's grandma, Mimi, passed away at the age of 93 and a half. The viewing and funeral were perfect and beautiful, just like Mimi. She was such a remarkable lady and in the coming week we are going to get some pictures together and post them on our website as a tribute to her.

We hope everyone had a wonderful week.........stay tuned for the videos..........................
