I feel the need to blog since it has been over a week since my last entry. However, all I have to report on is daily life in and around our house. So if you are bored already, please stop reading now. I was busy with the children last week since Mark was off on a church trip until Wednesday night. Boy, was I glad to see him when he got home! The next two days were filled with chores of various sorts.
Saturday was a fun day. A friend in Norman hosted a baby shower luncheon for me with a small group of women. It was all very elegantly arranged with really girly food and lots of pretty things. This is just the kind of thing I love. The big surprise was that my mother-in-law and sister-in-law (along with my cute 9-month-old nephew, Nicolas) drove up from the Dallas area for the event. I was really touched that they went to all the trouble to make the 3+ hour drive to be there. It was a very special day, and I appreciated all the effort that went into making it that way!
Sunday was interesting as well. We had a family visit the church from a town about 60 miles north of us. They were a boon to our normally small group. God also used their visit to take care of one issue of concern for us as our normal pianist was out with stomach flu, and we thought we would have to sing acapella. Instead, one of the daughters of the visiting family volunteered to play the piano for us. We were able to enjoy a meal and fellowship with the visitors and one other couple from church after the service, too. Of course, the distance this family is from our church will probably prevent any regular attendance at our church, but we appreciated them while they were with us. It was a good Sunday–really the way we wish every Sunday could be.
This week has started with 5-year-old Nevin’s t-ball team winning their first regular season game. This comes on the heals of their winning the league’s pre-season tournament last weekend. So our hopes are starting to build for Minco’s first-year t-ball team to have a great season! (By the way, as soon as I get a refresher on how to put photos up, I’ll have a couple of pictures of the winning team with their trophies.)
