Odds & Ends

We have the best dog ever!  She is so sweet and so loving.  Unfortunately, she does not like it when we leave her at home for the weekend.  She is never as good for the sitter - she looks all over the house for us and has accidents.  I guess we should be happy that she knows us so well, but it’s a little frustrating especially since she has been an angel for us since we arrived home.  Oh well, we wouldn’t trade her for anything, she has been so good for us and was the perfect addition to our family.  


We enjoyed a fantastic weekend with a few of my cousins and their spouses/fiancée.  We stayed in a cabin close to Turkey Run.  One thing about my family is that there is always wonderful food…we ate like kings all weekend!  Saturday, we hiked for a couple of miles and then took an 8-mile canoe trip.  The weather was wonderful!   We enjoyed games, fellowship, campfire, food, reminiscing and mostly just being a family.  


A friend of ours got married today!  Congrats to Dave and his bride.  We wish you all the happiness in the world!  May your love for one another grow with each passing day and may you serve God better together than you ever could have apart!


A week has passed since we learned about our beautiful son, Patrick.  It was a great week knowing about our precious little one.  We gaze at his pictures and can’t imagine life without him and pray for all the details to work out.  We hope that each week will pass as quickly as this past one.  We have lots to do between now and traveling, but really we just want to bring our baby home!
