Time To Catch Up!

Hey there!  Emily here, and I think it's about time we catch up on things over here!

As some of you may know, I have a personal blog where I write about a whole slew of things like cooking, crafting, baby stuff, and traveling from my perspective.  Here on this blog, however, Tedd & I take turns writing more specifically about the work we do with Literacy & Evangelism International (LEI).

Since returning from Nicaragua in November, we haven't had as much to post about around here...not because we're not working on LEI stuff anymore, but because it's not as interesting I suppose.  Tedd's main responsibilities are to keep correspondence with LEI's Latin America missionaries and potential ministry partners.  I'm a full-time mommy now (yippee!), but I've had the opportunity to work on a few graphic design projects with LEI during our time here in the States.  We've also been to a couple meetings since November.  

However, I did miss a couple of good opportunities to post, for example, about our LEI Christmas gathering back in December:

We also neglected to formally announce the birth of our son, Ian Walsh, on this blog!
Ian Lodes, 1 week old 

Now he's 11 weeks old and weighing 15 pounds!  We are absolutely smitten!
Here are some pics from Mother's Day (my very first Mother's Day!!)

We got a chance to visit the LEI staff again at the end of April and we brought along our little bambino.  The ladies were all over him!

 and they threw us a shower - so so nice!

So that's playing a bit of catch-up.  I'll be posting a couple more times this coming week to let you know what's coming up next, to answer some frequently asked questions, and to hopefully archive our newsletters!  See you around!
