Two things came in the mail today: 1) Our very first letter from one of our friends and 2) A slip to pick up what we think may be our very first package! The letter above is from a good friend of ours and was really encouraging. As much as I love the digital age we live in, a hand written letter can be special when it travels over 6,000 miles to get to you! We weren’t able to make it to the post office to get the other mail because I had the car and didn’t make it back before it closed. Hopefully tomorrow we can head over and pick it up.

As I left our place today it was raining. It wasn’t a hard rain but it wasn’t a soft rain either. Rain had been falling for a while because the roads were pretty wet. As you can see in the photo below it was a very wet and gray day. For the most of the day it stayed this way but late in the afternoon it cleared up and became a beautiful day. Check out the scene below in the second photo. You wouldn’t even think it was the same day.

Later, with the sun shining brightly in the background, I got this photo of an amazing spider web hanging on the JV office.

Tonight we had a little dinner at a friend’s house and Titus got all dressed up along with their sons. Good thing he had his Superman shirt on because with the mask and cape (and sword?) he was looking good.
