Playing Dress-Up

Priya has been getting into dressing up lately. The other night she put all of this together. Oh how she melts my heart. She is so much fun and such a joy to have in our lives! Priya, you are an unbelievable gift from God!

He finished!!

My phone rang today at 2:10pm. I saw Ashish's name as the caller and eagerly answered. He was finished with his NCLEX exam! He finished at around question 95 (out of a possible 205) and felt really good about it. The test will continue to give options if you aren't answering correctly so the fact that he ended as early as he did was a good sign. Now we have to wait about 6 weeks to find out for sure whether or not he passed. But for now we're ready to celebrate. Congratulations Ashish! I'm so proud of you!

Thanks so much for all of the prayers! We are so grateful! I'll be sure to post as soon as we get the official word.

Big Prayer Request!

I am happy to say that we are rapidly approaching the conclusion of Ashish's efforts to become a nurse (LVN)! He graduated in December and has been studying madly to prepare for the state board exam (NCLEX) that will take place on Tuesday, March 23 at 11am PST. He has come such a long way and has overcome some huge obstacles. I am so proud of all that he has accomplished.

Please pray for him as he spends these last few days studying and for peace, clarity of mind, for test questions that don't throw in words that may confuse him and that he will ultimately pass. Thank you so much! We'll be sure to keep you posted!

Our Little Organizer

I got some really cute videos recently that I just had to share! The first is of Priya Skyping with her cousins O & L. I'm so thankful for the ways we are able to stay in touch with family who is far away!

Next up is a funny scene that I discovered last night. Priya and I came home and she went to take her shoes off and put them back with her other shoes (a usual routine around here). I went into another room for a minute or two and when I came back out I discovered my little girl taking her shoes out one by one and lining them up in a neat row. She ended up pulling out old shoes as well (sizes that no longer fit her) and went about organizing them all. She proudly exclaimed, "I cleaning Mommy!" Do I possibly have an arranger on my hands? How wonderful would that be since I am definitely lacking in that area. ;)
