So I have been awful lately about updating our family blog. I have a valid excuse though . . . life has been crazy. Our new year started off with a bang. The girls are back in school and doing GREAT. They surprised us early this month by telling us that they both had decided that they were ready to be baptized. Sam and I debated it for a while because they are so young, but they assured us that they had Jesus in their hearts and they were ready. So one Sunday night we let them take the plunge. (Hehehe - get the pun?) They were so cute. Unfortunately we don't have any really good pictures because they were so short. They couldn't see over the baptismal ledge. It was a really proud mommy and daddy moment. Other than that we have been really busy with work and injuries. I just diminished up my physical therapy from the knee surgery I had in December. That was a relief because I had three appointments a week! Sam decided that he was tired of all the attention I was getting with my hurt knee so he decided that he was going to tear his Achilles tendon. Seriously though, he was playing basketball for the first time in YEARS and someone ran into him and tore the tendon. He has surgery tomorrow. :( Keep him in your prayers. Well, unfortunately I have no interesting pictures to post on this blog entry, but I wanted to let you all know that we are still alive here in Japan. I promise to post pictures of Sam in his huge leg cast and post surgery stuff too. We miss you all!

It is really hard to do. Someone stepped on him while playing basketball. It was complelty torn. It will take 6 months to heal all the way. :( David said with how accident prone Sam is lately we should call him Andrea Tutor.Sam laughed, but i didn't get it.
