Well we have been on vacation for the last three days and it has been lots of fun. Friday, I picked up Kerwin from school, went home and packed/cleaned, went out to dinner with my family and then headed up to Northern Kentucky for the weekend. Mike's brother was moving out of his apartment and into his newly purchased home. The move went really smoothly and his new place a great. Saturday evening we had dinner at my cousin's house just over the border in Ohio. We had a great time hanging out with her and her husband and their two kids. Kerwin especially loved playing on their swing set and in the play room. Kerwin and my cousin's little boy had a blast playing with a toy that shot Nerf darts really far. Of course they were playing inside so they first tried to catch them and then tried to shoot them at a target. Yesterday we went to church in the morning with Mike's grandma and then out for lunch. During the children's sermon, I walked up with Kerwin and interpreted for him. The pastor was talking about when Jesus appeared to the disciples after His resurrection and Thomas doubted. So translated into English it went something like this.

Pastor: "...Now the disciples were all in the upper except for one. Thomas was not with the other disciples."

Me interpreting: "All Jesus' friends were upstairs waiting but someone was missing. T-H-O-M-A-S, Thomas. Where was Thomas?"

Kerwin answering: "Maybe downstairs."

I love it. He is really starting to get more complex stories and he often tries to answer questions with book reading or in Sunday School. He is also telling longer stories. He is making sentences now that are sometimes 6 and 7 signs long.

We are getting ready to leave in a few hours for California. We are going to be doing some sight-seeing, visiting with Uncle Tyler, and going to Disneyland. I'll blog more and post some pictures while we're there. Unfortunately, I won't be able to gloat too much about the weather in LA. It's only supposed to get up to 65 all next week. So much for all those shorts I packed. I think I leave most of them here at my in-laws. Until next time...
