Hi folks. We have had a great month since coming back to Colorado from our trip to California. Junio has been involved in Soccer, Annabelle in Dance. Lily has learned to walk, and although only takes a couple steps at the most each time, does it regularly unassisted. Jamie has been enjoying homeschooling, and I have been looking after my family.
We have been blessed twice already (its still October) with snow accumulation. Its actually snowed three times, but the first time didn’t count, as it didn’t stick around. The second time we got 2-3ins, but just yesterday and today we got somewhere between 10-12ins. The kids have loved getting bundled up to play in it. We found the sleds in my parents garage for added enjoyment. Junio & Annabelle pray for the snow each night, and they have not been disappointed yet (sorry to all those in CO who would rather not have the snow, its my kids’ fault).
Last weekend, Jamie’s Dad & Step-mom flew in from Washington to surprise the kids, and boy was it a big surprise for them. We all had a fantastic weekend, They got watch Junio’s soccer game on Saturday, as well as go ice skating, swimming in the pool at their hotel with Junio and Annabelle, playing tennis and just hang out. It was really a great time.
Oh, before I forget, I wanted to let you know a couple things.
1. We have the opportunity to speak at Rocky Mountain Presbyterian Church, my brother Ben’s church, on the 8th of November. We look forward to connecting with those folks again, especially the several supporters we have in the church.
2. We have been blessed to be able to join some of my ‘long term’ friends from undergraduate on the East Coast for Thanksgiving. They try to get together each year for Thanksgiving and this year, because we are in the US, we’ll join them. While we are out there we’ll be speaking at our friends’ church, Reformed Baptist Church of Franconia. That will be on the 22nd of November. We will be in the area until the 2nd of December, then back to Colorado for the holidays.
So, all in all, we are doing very well and while we don’t have a normal really, I think for the present, we have a really nice ‘usual.’ Enjoy the pictures.
