I'm not much for blogging this week because I'm *truly* getting some work done on my thesis. My goal was to work three hours a day this week, and so far I missed Monday (the first day) but otherwise have done really well. Things are going smoothly, and when I get the words on the page I can't believe how much I know about Judith. I feel like we're buds now, and whenever I read an article that says something bad about her I get really defensive. She's not perfect, but she is really awesome. It's due April 18th, by the way.

and think about Judith's celebration too.
Anyway, I wanted to stop in and drop off this Lenten word search from www.wordsmatter.org. You know, I've been posting prayers from there periodically. I love the commitment to reach so many different spiritual practices. I'm really loving the website and am planning to print them all out and put them in a booklet for Lents-to-come.

Maundy Thursday, Shrove Tuesday, Forty Days, Paschal Lamb, and Holy Week.
In Evelyn news, she's teething and it is really, truly a test in patience. Maic and I are both exhausted from waking up throughout the night and we are begging those little teeth to just pop through. Just trying to remember: "Weeping may linger for the night, but Joy comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5. Now I just wish that time frame was literal.
Since we have a webcam attached to our new laptop, I like to turn on the camera and she watches herself in the computer and talks. It's really quite adorable. Here are a few photos.

|Who's that? (By the way, see that bruise on my arm? |
Would you believe this sweet little 7 month old gave me a hickey!
It's been there for a week now!)
|"Oh hi, other baby. Aren't you cute."|
|Daddy set up this cheer squad for her because he wants her to crawl. |
She just scoots backwards for now...
