I'm a day late with my weekend post, but it's all good. Tim and I went to breakfast yesterday with his brother and sister in law, who are back in the states for a few months from Africa and the Middle East.
It was good to have time with them and catch up. They had a daughter who lived in Florida for work for the last several years, and she is moving back to our area. She bought a house and one of her sisters is going to live with her. Another daughter lives in the apartment at their family home, and the oldest is a missionary in Burkina Faso. She is married to a Burkinabe man. They'll be here in May and celebrate their second anniversary in June. Emmanuel will have quite a cultural adjustment when he comes. He has just finished up his Bible School courses, and graduates on Saturday.
I've been doing a lot of babysitting.
Nate and Kay are moving, as I mentioned, and the last moving day will be tomorrow! I've had the girls here extra and thank goodness for beautiful days! This little one fell in the creek yesterday! Thankfully she was with her sisters and it is very shallow where they were playing.
Kyle has his senior photo shoot in the late afternoon yesterday.
I can hardly believe my 'baby' is nearly finished with high school. Jackie, our photographer friend, said it was the best guy shoot she has had. She said he was relaxed and comfortable, followed her direction. She took a lot of photos. We'll get about 200 in total. I can't wait to see them.
We are spending our days, looking out for each other. I make food, teach kids, keep the house tidy, be a friend to my parents and Kyle, hang out with Tim. Tim works jobs, manages the property, is helping Nate with the move, Kyle helps me with things, plays with his nieces, mows our property and helps with the mowing at four other properties (three for pay), helps my parents. Wes and Rachel have been away for his sisters wedding this past weekend. I'll be picking them up tomorrow at the airport, then we'll likely all end up at Nate and Kay's to help get them settled.
I hope that in these days of uncertainty, you know the Lord as savior. I hope that you have loved ones, and friends who are like family, to encourage and lift you up. Let me know how I can pray for you. I am daily in prayer for our nation, and family and friends and would feel privileged to pray for you!

Well, it's been a beautiful week here at our cottage home. Lots of sunshine, and deck sitting. I've been aiming to sit out for at least 15 minutes a day, but so far I've been able to be out for hours! I'm loving it!
Also had the joy of going to tea with my mom and some friends yesterday.
