Our trip to spend a few days visiting our daughter and her family was great. The kids are fun, they loved playing with Uncle Kyle, which meant a lot of wrestling.

Our Extended Weekend
The kids adore their baby brother
and as even came on they loved gathering around grandpa and watching videos of machines doing work.
Emma is such a great mom. The kids love to snuggle up with her in the mornings.
While we were there she made Sarah a few oil rollers - one for skin and one for peace and relaxation.
One day we went and got special donuts, and then we went to an awesome antique mall. We found a sweet ring for Sarah, and some little toys for the kids. I could have taken this chandelier home!
Sarah and Kyle were feeling the soon to be separation. They are my twins separated by three years.
We took Sarah to school on Saturday and got to know her roommate and her roommate's parents at the welcome banquet. Afterward we took Sarah and her roommate for coffee, and some chatting. They are going to get along very well. We'd been praying about that.
Classes are underway this morning, and I've had a text asking me to mail her two cardigans that she has forgotten. I'm happy to do that.
The house feels normal right now because she'd be at work if she were home, but when evening comes and her room is empty, we'll feel it.
We think there is no finer foundation for life than to study God's word. She has the privilege to do this for two years. She feels strongly that this is an amazing time to be alive.
Continuing to pray for peace for our nation, and for wisdom. I have always prayed, since learning that one of my spiritual gifts is discernment, that God would make me like the 'sons of Issachar' who could discern the times in which they lived. (1 Chronicles 12:32) Wisdom and discernment is surely needed in these unprecedented days.
