This weekend we had a wonderful time with some friends from the Midwest (Corey and Kelli Tolle and their boys Mason, Brady and Landen). Kelli and I went to nursing school together and it is such a blessing to hear how God has been working in their lives. Lots of fun catching up, laughing, playing and of course...eating!
Today it would have been hard to get geared up to go to school after having such a great weekend, but both Luke and Abby had classes to look forward to. Luke had his first guitar lesson, while Abby started dance class. She was so excited that she woke up at 2:30 a.m., bringing me her clothes so she could get dressed. Ugh! Needless to say, they both enjoyed their lessons.
If that were not enough excitement...our Austrian friend Tami arrived this evening...bearing Milka chocolate bars no less. We think she will fit in lovely with our family over the next few weeks and we hope this is a new beginning in my "mastering" the German language. Ha! Ha! So far, I can understand one word for every 15 that she speaks! (if that)
Oh, and let's not forget Levi's new beginning...potty training. He only gets candy when he actually sits and goes without clothes on... but often he will sit on the potty fully clothed and say, "Mommy, I went pee pee on da potty".
Here's to new beginnings!
