These are pictures of my beautiful soon-to-be baby cousin Alisha.

My Aunt Alex and Uncle Sharon are in the process of adopting her from Bombay, in India and are running into endless amounts of red tape. Please pray for her and them.

She turned a year old today. The orphanage had to shave her for hygenic reasons (they don't have the time to wash and dry all the children's hair). Isn't she beautiful?

Our Jesse

I just had to share this picture with all of you. I took this picture at the kids market, a couple of days before he took off. You are loved and missed, Q.

Beauty... and coffeehouses... will save the world...

Fr. John sent around a note, agog at this beautiful Orthodox coffeehouse in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It's called Agia Sophia, after the church whose worship was so lovely it saved the Slavs. And this place even has an available Russian Samovar room for tea, books of good theology laying about, and other good food and drink.

fare thee well

Hello everyone, I am off to Ottawa with my good friend Grace (cute blond whom many of you have met). We will be crossing the country in roughly nine days (taking our sweet, sweet time) and bringing Biss and Phil their car and some worldly possessions.

After a few days in Ottawa I will be moving to Wichita, Kansas, for a semester (come visit, I will be near eighth day books and Joshua!). I hope to move back to Ottawa in January and finish my degree there; I’m excited.

In short, I’m leaving in the morning and will not see any St. Hermanites for a lengthy amount of time; I will miss you like crazy.

My love to you all, and many years.

Jensina is a week old

I know I'm little biased, but is she not perfection? Posted by Picasa
