Lots has happened since my last update. I always feel like I don’t do it justice if I let a few days go by without writing, but sometimes, life is just too busy.
We spent last weekend with David and Austin. It was a fun weekend. We watched “This Means War” at the movies. It had us all laughing out loud. There was nothing particularly original about it, but it was silly fun, which we all appreciated.
Richard had been on the lookout for a more permanent place to stay. The Bowles have been beyond wonderful, but as we find ourselves here more and more, it just made sense to get our own place. On a whim, we drove by an apartment complex last Sunday, and it was perfect! They had one ground floor unit available, and the layout was exactly what we needed. We signed a lease on Monday, and have been slowly moving things in for the last few days. We are so lucky to have Frieda like the Bowles and the Armers who helped us get everything moved in! And the Eatons blessed us with lots of kitchen goodies to get us started.
During that time, I also ran the talent show auditions at school (with a LOT of help) and we welcomed two of the kids’ good friends to town for a long weekend. Sean and Nikkiana came out from California, an it Sean’s words, they were here to make David laugh. We certainly did a lot of that. They are all fantastic kids and I can’t remember when any of us have laughed so much. My cheeks actually hurt last night!
David spent a couple of nights at the apartment with us this week, but he also stayed at his dad’s house one night to see his cousin, Shea. Shea is in town through tomorrow, so he’ll have time to visit with her today, too.
This week will be another busy one: school appointments, talent show, tennis for Austin, and an Avastin infusion for David. He is tired a lot, but handling things fairly well. Thanks to everyone who is praying! We are matching forward with our armor on!
