On my way home from GA a few weeks ago I stopped in KY to see my friend Lena and her new baby, Ryan. We found out recently that Lena’s husband has been given orders to go overseas in December for another year (he has been to Iraq once already) – Ryan will be 6 months old when he leaves. Here’s a pic of the whole family (minus older brother Blake):

Last week I had dinner with my friend Mary Jo who is due to give birth to her first child, Kale, next week. She is getting very anxious and uncomfortable in her pregnancy, but she’s also excited and READY to finally hold the little guy in her arms (any day now, hopefully)!
The overjoyed parents!
Little Kale, as of last month:
Both baby boys and their mothers could really use some prayers!
Lena and I have been friends since the 5th grade and friends with Mary Jo since 9th grade. Here we are at MJ’s wedding last September:
