It really feels like it’s been a while since we’ve had a normal start to a week, but today we were back into the swing of things. Titus went to school this morning and Bethany took him while I got ready to head in to the Josiah Venture offices for meetings. It’s great to see a normal routine come back in to our lives. As our health continues to improve I feel like we’re catching up on things in our house and Bethany was hard at work today getting the kids’ room ready for baby #3. When we were at IKEA on Sunday Bethany really wanted to buy a little frame tray and she had a vision of what the kids dresser could look like. Today she made it a reality and texted me this photo of what she was working on. I thought it looked great!

Making it Pretty (3/9/15)

It also has felt like it’s been a while since we did our last Czech lesson which was about a week and a half ago (we cancelled our lessons due to sickness). So it really nice to meet up again today with Jenny and Landen to work on our Czech language drills. We spent most of today just reviewing and getting our minds back around the last few drills which was really helpful. We’re learning prepositional phrases like “the book is next to the table” or “the paper is inside the book.” It’s amazing when you start to think about all those little things that we do naturally in language that you now need to train yourself on. Words like “on, beside, in, under…” are often used and we don’t think about it. There are so many ways you can say things! It was a good time today and we’ll be back at it tomorrow afternoon.

Church (5/9/15)

I took the above photo tonight around sunset from our kitchen window. It was fun to see the sun reflecting off the huge Catholic church. The sky was beautiful today and it was another “warm” day (mid 50s) and I’m thankful for the break from the cold. It might cool off later this week, but we’ll take all the warm, sunny days we can get!
