Menu Plan: April 19 - 25
We're finally back to our normal, hectic schedule here. School is back on track full time, activities are back to normal, and we're all a little slammed. But the weather is beautiful during the day and this is the greenest and prettiest time of year here. It's still freezing or below in the mornings, but we're in the 60s and 70s during the day. We are late getting our garden started and ready, as usual, but Rich has been having a great time playing with the dirt, and we've planted four more fruit trees this spring.
Our older boys have a couple jobs in our farming neighborhood, which is great for them as it earns them skills and money, and great for us, because now they have skills to use in our yard. This makes our school schedule a little crazy, because I have to make sure they are finished by lunchtime most weeks, so they can leave after lunch to go work. It's pretty exciting for them, though, as they get to drive four wheelers and have a little more financial freedom and do stuff that strengthens their bodies a bit.
In the meantime, however, one of my cousins had a a heart attack from which he seems to be recovering, but he is only 46 or so, so this was unsettling for him and his family, as you can imagine. Please be in prayer both for his health, and for the comfort of his wife and sons. Our friends with the preemie daughter have been dealing with some set backs lately and could also use some prayer.
In other news, we finally got tired of not having a place to go dancing and started a monthly dance. We've held three so far, and they are doing alright. We're hoping to open it up to more people and keep building it up a little more. So, if you are in the area, come join us!
