Then Allen and Lizzie started playing around with my funny phones. The plastic phone Allen has is an antique Roy Rogers phone. Lizzie's phone actually works and we depend on it when the electric goes out.
This past week was special for Anna. First, she got the last of her braces off. Hurray! Then, she drove up to Washington DC and spent the night at a hotel with her second family. If you remember that two years ago, Anna spent 11 weeks in Uganda being a mother's helper to a missionary family that was expecting a new baby (Anna is holding her in this picture). Well, this family is in the states doing deputation.
Anna loved being back with them and she also liked how the children remembered her and felt at ease with her...sitting on her lap and asking her questions. Baby Ethan was a toddler then but now he is a big boy at four years old! (But still cute!)
So we are busy into the winter doldrums. School, work, chores, and soccer keep us busy.
Many blessings ~ Kathie
