It’s beginning to be hard to focus on the here and now, as so much is happening soon. We’ve been able to set some exact dates for our arrival in CA this week, which is super helpful to know as we go forward in making plans. I don’t remember the last time I had so many big events in my calendar. Instead of writing out and describing all these events, I’ll expand their descriptions in the list, but otherwise let the list speak for itself. During our month in Colorado we’ll be doing some internal work on our house, painting and getting the wood floors sanded down and re-varnished, but otherwise hope to see as many old friends as possible. And if you’ve had a recent graduate, you may well imagine the many, many events that will be happening during the month of May, this is not our full planning calendar, just the big events and trips we’d love you to be aware of and praying for. We are also still waiting, and waiting, to hear back from the two colleges mentioned that Danny has applied to, hopefully any day now. Rachel has also had some health concerns come up in the past month, stress is a big factor and one more indicator that it’s time for this furlough-type season back in the US.

LOL – yeah, just typing it all out was tiring! I’m focusing on mid-August, when we’re all moved in and I’ve bought one of those nice floats for my Grandma’s pool, with the cup holder and maybe an umbrella. 😉 But hey, before that – I’d LOVE to see you lady, hoping we can make that happen this time in CO!
Perhaps Josiah can meet our son Jeff who is a techie at Disneyland! Since we have a daughter in San Dimas and a son in Fullerton, we’re down there now and then & will have to meet up!
That’s right – I remember you mentioning your son Jeff, we’ll have to connect him and Josiah! 🙂 And we would SO love to meet up with you guys, this time on the other side of the Atlantic. 🙂
