Evelyn has been having trouble sleeping in her bed all night lately. Recently she brought a story home from church about how God watches over sleeping children. We read it to her in hopes that it would help her sleep better. Every night since, she's asked us to come and pray for her after we read our bedtime books.

Last night was precious. Aimee said a short prayer which ended with "and please watch over Evelyn while she sleeps", to which Evelyn added "and God, if you aren't in my room, I can go sleep on the mat in Mom and Dad's room".

My Happy Place

We’re very nearly done with the renovations at our new place. The last two days I’ve spent some time working from home, and it’s been wonderful. At our old house, the best view available showed us an outstanding view of the, um, neighbor’s house.

While we get the downstairs finished, I’ve had my desk upstairs next to the TV. The picture below is what I have been looking at out my window. You can’t see it in the picture, but fall leaves are slowly drifting by on the river. It’s a lot easier to get in the zone from here than it is at the office, staring at a blank wall and trying to be productive between interruptions.
