First Crush...

A couple weeks ago we had special visitors at our house... our great friends Richard and Christy drove half way across the country just to visit us! Actually, I think they had some family, friends and other ministry partners that they wanted to see and it wasn't until they decided to come see us that they realized they could just add on to their trip and see them as well... or maybe it was the other way around, doesn't matter.

Anyways, they live in Asia and we hadn't seen them for several years, so it was a blast to get to welcome them to Arkansas for a few days before they head back to their little island village. It only took a few minutes for us to realize that Isaiah had a huge crush on "Miss Christy". Here are few things that tipped us off:
  • First, he never likes to get his picture taken and even when he does, he usually won't look at the camera and smile. However, when we suggested taking a picture with Christy, he got all excited, snuggled up to her on the couch, looked right at the camera and flashed us his biggest cheesiest grin.
  • Next, Ross and Richard took the boys out for a walk and they each picked some wildflowers to give to the "pretty ladies". Ross opened the door and told Isaiah, "go give your flowers to Mommy" and instead he rushed right past her and ran to give them to Christy.
  • It was shortly after this that he ran up to Christy again and gave her a huge smile and said "um, um, Happy Mothers Day!" He was just smitten with her the whole time they were here, and he was devastated when he woke up on Friday morning and they were gone. He kept asking "will Miss Christy and Miss Richard come back?"
Besides his newfound love, he also found a new best friend in Oliver. They had an absolute blast together! The highlights for them were playing with the medical kit and tractors (they really thought that the two somehow go together), and of course bath time was filled with splashing, bubbles, and lots of laughter. It was a great visit and we hope that someday we will have the opportunity to go visit them at their house. Here are a few more pictures:

Boys and their crushes! Don't you just wish you could see what's going on in their heads? :) What fun to get to see Richard and Christy and their boys. I'm so glad Oliver and Isaiah hit it off.
Take care.
PS Thanks for the birthday wishes.

Can't think of anyone sweeter than Christy for Isaiah to have a "crush" on...
We are so glad that you had that time with Richard and Christy. What a precious gift friends matter how far they are.
Love you to the moon!
