Our friends the Tuppers came up a few weeks ago to visit from Seattle--which we love. We took them to Fairhaven to paint pottery. They had to have up pick it up and return their pieces to them later...so, I told Wendy I'd post a picture of my finished chicken/bird I painted into a round tray. It's quirky. I like it. I thought I could put pasta in it when I serve spaghetti. Yesterday, we went to Lynwood--and had lunch with Shaun's mom and family at Old Spaghetti Factory. Enoch sat in a high chair (the wood ones provided by the joint) and he did so well. He did get anxious to touch everything he could when he got bored---and tired though. He saw his cousins and aunt and uncle. Those were some fond moments to watch! Enoch touched his cousin Andrew gently on the tummy (Andrew is two) and Andrew smiled--then told his daddy, "He touched me!" It was cute. It was sooo nice to see them.
Here's my little baby! For mother's day, we went to Larabee Park and Enoch had his first time at a beach! AND---he touched the Pacific Ocean. He really liked all the rocks. He quickly learned NOT to put them in his mouth---but instead, to run your hands into them and move them around quickly. I was impressed with his enthusiasm to even crawl on the rocks....OH YES...Crawl.
The day came last Thursday....ENOCH is crawling. He's gotten much faster since he started. We haven't baby-proofed yet--waiting to move to our new place first. (Hopefully we get it--and will hear if our application revealed a safe financial background and no criminal background.)
Hey, didn't we tell you? We're moving out--so, Austin can move in . Yeah! Austin is the Booth's missionary son--who is expected June 15. We're excited for him...and agree that he needs a place to sleep. So, we have searched high and low---been dissapointed a few times--but have finally found the cleanest, nicest place we could have ever hoped for without being millionaires. We'll keep you updated. If we get it (we should know this week), we can move out before the end of the month--since the people there are moving early.
Anyway....I have saved the BEST for last. Shaun got into Western for the fall and into his major--HUXLEY--The College of Environmental Science. YEAHHHH! The end is in sight! We're all really happy for him and thank everyone for their prayers and support. We're glad we don't have to move to Eastern Washington --to Cheney.
Well, this is enough for now. Have a good week or so.
