A lot has happened....

I would like to start off with saying Thank You for praying for our youngest son Deacon. He is doing much better now, he is still coughing but sounds a lot better.

I would like ask if you all would pray for Andrews Nanny, she has been in the hospital for a little while now with a few problems, and has recently found out that she has shingles. She will hopefully be discharged from the hospital and will be placed in the nursing home for a short while. Please pray that she will get strong fast.

A lot has happened within the past couple weeks. Andrews brother flew in from Washington state to be with their Nanny. So we have been visiting with him off and on the last few days.

Andrew has been working hard and working doubles. So the time as a family has been cherished around the Stroupe home.

My birthday was on the 13th, valentines was on the 14th, and our anniversary was on the 15th, and Andrew just happened to have a 3 day weekend so what does he do....

Yep you got it right, he kidnapped me and took me up to the the Quad Cities and had ourselves a little getaway. I will have to tell you, he did a wonderful job.

As some of you already know, Andrew and I are big coffee drinkers, and this was a really cool coffee shop right across the street from our hotel.

Of course we have been trying to keep up with school work, but with Andrews Nanny, company, and Deacon being sick it has been a struggle.

Another picture of Chloe doing some school work.

And this is us just being the silly Stroupes and playing with our food.

So I just have fast question. My little Deacon has some congestion in the chest and the nasal. I am not sure why, but, almost every time he nurses he gets sick. I have been nursing him every hour so that he does not get dehydrated, and also he is not nursing much. Anyhow, I was wondering if any of you moms have any suggestions for me, they are greatly needed.

Hoping to hear from some of you soon.
