I started school this week for the first time after China.  The first week has gone well!  I mean, I didn’t get all my subjects done every day, but we usually start slow.  #ILoveHomeSchooling

And, thanks to all your great suggestions, my writing has picked back up: I scribbled out the one-hundredth page in “Searching For His Name” today! 🙂

“At least Mrs. Miller had given him mittens.  Rodden covered his hands and stepped forward.  He sank almost up to his knees.  He scowled at the elven-boots.  At least they kept his feet warm.” –“Searching For His Name,” page 100.


Michael isn’t even favoring his foot anymore, but some of us are still coughing pretty bad.  We would appreciate your prayers still.  Thank you all for responding so well!  You guys give great writing-tips and you’re wonderful prayer-warriors.

Lucy is learning English faster than you would believe!  We can communicate better every day.  We are still watching shows in Chinese though–“My Friends, Tigger and Pooh” to be precise.  We can’t understand what they’re saying of course (except for a few words we’re able to pick out) but you can still tell what’s going on from the visual.  I still enjoy watching it even though I’ve seen a certain five episodes something like a million times! 🙂

Hope you guys are all having a great week!

  1. I’m so glad that Micheal’s foot is better! We’re still praying for you all, hope you get better soon!
    The hundredth page?! Wow! That’s really good! How many chapters does your book have so far? -Savannah

    1. Thank you so much for praying, Savannah. I just got to the twenty-eighth chapter. I didn’t realize there were quite that many, because it’s in two parts and I started over at one when I finished part one.
      I’m… long-winded. I can’t make anything short! 🙂

          1. That’s cool! I’m really excited to read your story, it sounds SO good!
            A lot of the time when I have a story, I can never predict how many chapters it will have, even though I try :-). It never really turns out the way I plan!
