Of course, this year ends with going home (prayerfully) and then returning - with one less kiddo. Victoria has already applied to college. So this summer will be tearful goodbyes, chaos and joy. We can't wait and don't want it to come all at the same time.
We ask our friends and family to pray for us as we get closer. We certainly need stamina for the time to come. Patience for the year to go by. And finances to meet our needs.
But we will get off that plane and be your neighbor for at least a short while. Shall we meet for some iced tea? How about sitting on the porch for a little while? A game of pinochle anyone? A little bit of stromboli making - a whole lot of cheese eating.... so for the summer to come - won't you be our neighbor?
2014-2015 First Day of School - aren't they cute? :D
