New Book Look, New Blog Location

Two announcements for anyone following what I post these days:

1. New book revision on the way! I've had plenty to think about the last few months, so of course there's lots to write about. The new version of Christ In Y'all is about 40 pages longer, has a new chapter, and represents an updated version of how I'm thinking about things these days. Check out the cover design Brad Thomas came up with for me:

Pretty cool, huh? Looks professional now. A bit less homemade :-)

2. I'm moving my blog to WordPress, so from now on you'll need to access this blog from this site:

First Day of School, First Broken Arm

The three older girls had their first day of school this week. So here's our annual first day of school pic:

We also went to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta to get a for-real cast put on Dorothy's broken arm. We decided Dora needed a cast, too. So now she's got one (you have to look close!) That Dorothy still loves her tongue!

You have to admit, she does look really cute walking around with that tiny little sling. People everywhere involuntarily say "aawwwww" wherever she goes.

Long Evening at the Carter House

Our toddler, Dorothy, gives me fits these days because she's always on the verge of something dangerous. I'm not even sure how she worked this one out, but she got up on our piano bench when our backs were turned and she fell off, apparently twisting her arm and breaking it.

Her sisters were pretty concerned as we hauled her off to the doctor and then to the emergency room. But thankfully their grandparents had just arrived in town, so we had help with the older three while April and I were at the hospital.

It was a tough evening, but all's well that ends well. Dorothy got some supper (at 9:30pm!) and sat with Grandmama watching her new favorite show, Dora.

I'm going to sleep.
