Hausschuhe are purchased (special shoes with white soles that they wear only at school), backpacks are by the door, clothes are laid out and prayers have been offered as we get ready to start school tomorrow.
There is a sense of nervous excitement running through our house. The kids are ready to meet new friends and start learning German, but also scared of making mistakes and not knowing anyone. As a result of this anxiety, we spent most of the weekend trying to meet the needs of their love language...
Levi's really isn't a true love language, but if it has anything to do with a mess, then his heart is happy! Painting proved messy and a bit productive as he now likes to practice writing his name...all by himself!
Abby loves to spend time together! So we had "girls' time making cookies and special
punch...a secret recipe taken from her Strawberry Shortcake book...a real treat for dessert!
Luke's love language is also quality time spent together...and he loves to learn anything from Daddy. Today it was the many rules and strategies of Monopoly. Watch out Matt Cates, we have a real competitor on our hands!
So that is the latest update as we get ready to start a new chapter tomorrow. Our prayer tonight during worship is that others would see the love of Jesus flowing from our hearts as we meet new people and encounter new experiences.
Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
