Busy, Busy, Dreadfully Busy

My time with Louise was priceless and oh so tiring, but I believe I have finally recovered. Life here on the home front is nothing if not busy. This is such a happening place don't cha know. Ellie turned 2, Catherine had a slumber party for her birthday, we finished our 2nd post placement interview and are officially done with visits from social workers whom we've never met before who have to make a quick but thorough assessment of our family, ballet recitals and mother's day this week, Matt turns 18 and then he graduates and then we have an open house to honor him and celebrate God's faithfulness that we have survived all that parenting a teenage boy involves thus far. Then Catherine finishes school and Eddie and I head to WYOMING for our 25th wedding anniversary trip. After that we are heading to TN for a reunion with our Fuzhou travel group...can't wait to see all the families...see, I told you life's busy. What's going on in your neck of the woods??? Hope you are able to celebrate Jesus in the midst of all you are experiencing, because He loves you so much. His, jackie sue (I will post photos in a few days...ok weeks...but sometime)

You don't sound very busy at all! LOL

Busy here too - Ben graduates and then turns 18 and he's looking for a full time job and Allison is finally starting to talk but she's into EVERYTHING and Lindsey is full of energy and the dog is wanting to be let out or go for a walk and then there's a marriage to nurture! And of course friends to email and blogs to visit and and and.....whew.

Have a great day!
