Tomorrow my son will turn 18. We will be going out to dinner with family and friends, and we will also use that celebration to give him his high school diploma.

Then this weekend my darling husband leaves for Louisiana to help with Katrina relief. He is going with a group from church. Our church has been sending teams down regularly. Last year a group went every month and this year every other month. My husband will be able to use the gifts that God gave him to serve others and show the love of Christ.

We will miss him a lot. So to compensate for missing him, I am making plans for things to do. Now that I have painting my livingroom/kitchen I need to paint the hallway, so I will do that. My mom is going to come and stay one night with the girls (they like to have slumber parties in their bedroom) and I think we will go bowling the next day. We also may go to Longwood Gardens.

I think that is enough to keep us busy while he is gone, what do you think?


  1. I have read your Blog for weeks and weeks - over the years we have missed knowing what the Rabe family is doing - thank you for being so personal. Birthday wishes to Nate - living across from you guys in Camdenton seems like a lifetime ago. We will be thinking about Tim and the others as they go - Tim will surely be used of the Lord as he was so many times in our lives.
