Building Life

  • Two weeks ago: On Labor Day we did just a little bit of school and got out our kiddie pool. A friend visited for a couple days, and we all went out-of-town for my annual bloodwork and doctor's appointment. Ricky worked in another county three days this week. We had another friend over for dinner and a game and stayed up way too late talking. Also, we had a great visit with my aunt and uncle -- swimming at their neighborhood pool and enjoying a cookout :)
  • Last week: The big happening was rearranging and organizing our main area living room. We were honored to give our large couch to a friend, and IKEA delivered some large items we had gotten. Ricky put together our new, smaller couch and bookshelves within a few days; they're filled up. I should take a picture of it. We, also, went to a free conference by Voice of the Martyrs with the kids, and we loved it! The kids did great. Then, we enjoyed small group (with Ricky as the only guy to show up!)
  • For those without Netflix (or with), check out VidAngel! It allows you to select filters (or not) for each movie you want to watch. And it's only $1/movie. Great selection -- better than Netflix or Redbox or any you can think of. We love it and highly recommend it!
