Big news in Evangelo-Land

No we are not expecting another baby- I know that is what you were all thinking. :-) However, we do have some big changes coming around here. As most of you know, Ryan and I moved to Perry (my hometown) at the beginning of the summer. We have been getting all settled at our new home and Ryan has been working.

We have finally found the right church and we are getting all settled there as well. Here is the big news part of this update- We have been asked to be the new youth pastors at our church and we have accepted their offer! Wow. We are so excited and so humbled that God thinks that we are the right choice for these kids. We will be officially starting in mid October.

In other news, Ryan got on at the base in an internship (full time while he finishes his master's degree) This is a huge answered prayer. He will be making twice as much and working days instead of evenings. Chloe and I were sick of him being on nights. :-(

So as you can see all is going great here. Hope you are all doing well. We love you!

Ryan, Christi, and Chloe

I think she is going to be a talker!

Chloe's Newest Fascination(s)

It is official- Chloe has her first obsession. About 3 weeks ago I taught her the word flower. It was our word of the week. We looked for flowers, we painted flowers, we sang about flowers and we read books about flowers. By the end of the week she knew exactly what a flower was. It didn't take her long to figure it out either. By the middle of the week the girl was finding flowers everywhere. She found them on her clothes, on the wall, at Wal-Mart, at the farmers market, and in other odd places. I will have to post some of her "flower art" for you all to enjoy. Stay tuned for that.

The reason for me telling you all this is that she has found something in our house that she THINKS is a flower. She constantly points to a little patch of hair on Ryans chest and says "flower...flower...flower". No matter how many times we tell her "no that is hair Chloe" she still says "flower". Too funny.
