It’s been a month since my last post, so I thought I’d better write something.  Since that last post …

  • school has ended and the boys are home;
  • we’ve torn out a wall and all our kitchen cabinets — hope to get new cabinets this week;
  • most of our house has been re-plumbed, but right now our household water supply includes two toilets, one bathroom sink, one shower, and 3 outdoor faucets;
  • we’re also re-wiring our kitchen, moved our laundry room, and are preparing our old laundry to be an office;
  • we’ve hosted Jana Treadway, a Memorial Day gathering of old missionaries, and the Alan Henderson family–all without a kitchen;
  • we’ve had VBS at church (see our church web site for pictures);
  • we made a 10 day trip to Alabama for the world famous Parker Pig Out family reunion.  Also on that trip we visited Homewood for the first time since moving to Texas, and we all met Jonathan’s birth mother (“tummy mummy” in his terms) along with some of her family for the first time;
  • had a fender bender accident when we were almost home — I’ve got to start dealing with insurance tomorrow!

I’m sure there’s something I’ve left out, but maybe this will bring you up to date and explain our failure to post lately.  Thanks for checking in!
