Yes, it has happened...I finally became a "blogger". Julie, I'm not sure if your "by the way..." was with me in mind yesterday, but I definitely have been a juliedel, from your prompting, I got an account and decided to do the blog thing. This is a good way to keep friends and family updated on our lives. So, thanks for the inspiration. :)

So often I want to fill people in on things in the Hylkema Household, but finding time to sit and call everyone, or even e-mail, is hard. Hopefully this will be a way to keep you all updated on my life.

As I sit and write this, Noah is taking his long overdue nap. We had T-MOM's this morning (same thing as MOPS, just our version) Noah doesn't really get a good nap when he's at church...too many fun things to do and see. We stayed after to help Hylke with the setup for tonight's big outreach...I finally put him down around 2:15 and he's sound asleep. Maybe I'll take a pic and post it. Days like today seem so crazy. We were rushing to get everyone fed and ready to go by 8:30am (well, I get breakfast at church) but it was still a bit hectic. At about 1:30 I realized that I hadn't even changed Noah's diaper since he woke up at 7:45!!! He was a good sport, just very, VERY wet.

I should probably get everything together for tonight before Noah wakes up. SURGE (our JH outreach) starts at 6pm. I know that Hylke has worked so hard to put this together, please pray that it goes well and new students from the community come out and hear a clear presentation of the Gospel. Last year we had about 160 kids...I hope we have another great turnout. I'll post more about it this weekend.

Julie, if you're reading this, I'm already thinking up my list. I told Hylke he should make one too. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, just watch for my list. :) Maybe that should be #1...make a list of 101 things I want to accomplish in 1001 days.

Off for now.
