Update on Emily & A New Addition to the Harder Family

1 John 5:14 "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us."

I want to thank everyone who has been praying for Emily. I have been checking in with her mom and she is doing well after surgery. They will stay in Chicago for the next two weeks until her follow up appointment, since they travel from Nebraska. Please pray that Emily continues to heal and that the new treatment will be effective in treating her brain cancer. 

Please also pray for a 16 year old girl named Abigail. I recently learned that she is going to have brain surgery as well. I don't know her or her story, but I thought that the more people that pray for her, the better.


This week we added a new member to our family. 

Meet Rex, our 10 week old Aussie Doodle. We were planning on getting a puppy in October, but we discovered that the mother didn't get pregnant. On Wednesday, we found out about Rex. We discovered that he was about an hour away from us. We decided to take a leap and surprise the kids with the puppy Wayne promised them when we moved. After church, Wayne announced that we needed to stop at Rural King to get some things for our dog. I wish I had my phone videotaping the kid's responses.

Thursday Wayne and I went and picked him up. I have had dogs as a kid, but I have never had to train a puppy. Wow! A puppy is much like having a newborn in the house! I am slightly sleep deprived since I have been getting up every 1-2 hours during the night. The second night was a lot better then the first (he whimpered and cried all night!). Last night we put his crate next to our bed and he did much better. The kids are in love and we are so excited to finally have a dog! Good thing he is so stinkin' cute...it makes up for my lack of sleep.

We will be officially starting school after Labor Day. Please pray for us as we embark on another school year. I have a few posts to catch up on (our trip out west and how God is providing in amazing ways for us here in Kentucky)...so stay posted!
