What An Adventure!
Well, the past two weeks in the Acklen family have been filled with much excitement. Some good, some bad. With John losing his job last week, we are learning all about the joys of applying for food stamps, WIC, and unemployment. Along with all of this, our two year old, Elijah, has acquired a rare viral condition--it doesn't even have a name--where he is covered with spots and runs a high fever sporadically. He has also succeded in flushing a whole diaper down our toilet, thus resulting in a very complicated plumbing job that landed our toilet in the bathtub (dookie water and all). So, I have also learned about the joys of scrubbing dookie water out of my floor and bathtub! I know some of you are rolling at the mental picture right now, and I am sure I will...sometime in the distant future. So far, the only obstacle Grace has produced is the fact that she is now crawling and learning to pull up. She stands up, realizes what she has done, and comences to shrieking to the top of her lungs. What a drama queen! The children do bring lots of joy and laughter into our lives. Please pray for John as he is furiously seeking a new job. If you see a man down at Wal-Mart, holding up a sign that says "Will preach for food", it's probably John! Visit our blog often, and we will keep you updated!
