Now What?

  • While we have some event every weekend during the months of October and November, there was a stretch of craziness in the midst where we had fun activities almost every day. And that time just ended. We had one normal day out of the past 10! [Very, very little computer time.] Our events: family trip to park, babysit neighbors, visit to apple orchard to pick our apples with some friends, pizza/movie night, church, went on a date to a Josh Garrels' concert (first concert since college!) in another city, we met my mom in Raleigh for a short visit and we four enjoyed a "school field trip day" (children's museum, picnic, park) while Ricky attended a work conference, met relatives for dinner, many helpers, more babysitting, guys' night, a pregnancy care center banquet, art with friends, lunch with missionary friends, more babysitting, a friend coming to stay overnight, organizing and preparing a friend's baby shower which happened and was really lovely, another pizza/movie night, church, and hosted our small group meeting. Phew! A lot of work, emotion, and activity. Very little sleep :( Definitely had to take the week off from schooling! :)

If we were home, this was us!
Scratch that... in the car too!
At the concert, they sat us to the side of the stage in the sound booth, so we could see Josh Garrels perform:)

  • School verse: Psalm 34:13 K -- Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
  • Verse passage to memorize next is Psalm  95:1-7. I'll do the first two verses this week Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
