The last two weeks have been a whirlwind. Brian had his final for his class last semester about the time he was asked to preach at our church for the first time the day after Christmas. We got to spend some time together, but my husband the studier just couldn't concentrate on Christmas 24-7 until after the sermon was over. He did a wonderful job and you can listen to it if you want by going to the church's website www.redeemerkansascity.org and then clicking on the resources tab at the top. The link should be there with his name. We are so very proud!
The few days before Christmas Nana and Papa came from TX and we had a wonderful time! We mostly concentrated on relaxing and having some fun which was a wonderful change of pace for all of us! We had such a good time with them and hated to see them go!
24hrs after they left we packed up and headed to Joplin to see my family and so that I could be in my best friend from high school's wedding on New Years Eve. The whole week was a blast for me, but Olivia and I were the only one's who escaped whatever sickness this is going around. Brian even had a fever--which is like death for him because he NEVER gets sick. He was a real champ about it, though, which is good because I was too busy going to parties and rehearsals to take care of him.
We just got back home last night and its back to the real world already. I made my very unpleasant to-do list for the week. Mostly calls to insurance companies and stuff. I hate that, but alas, it must be done.
Towards the end of the week I will probably post some pictures because Olivia is scheduled to demo some new adaptive equipment on Wed and maybe Thursday. We are really looking forward to a way to make walking easier for her and for me too!
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
