Joe and Rose

Jen’s sister and my good friend Rose got married in Indiana on March 22. I left the Wednesday before the wedding to fly to Indiana. I ended up sitting at my home airport for 5 hours, before getting started on my journey. Therefore I missed my flight out of Chicago and ended up taking the bus to South Bend, getting there at 1:00 Thursday morning instead of 6:42 Wednesday evening. Thursday and Friday we spend setting up for the reception and preparing food. Thursday night we had a last single girls bash with Rose. Winking smile Saturday was rather cold, but they had a very nice wedding. I don’t have captions on the pictures so I will kinda explain a few. We (Nell, Andrea, and I) helped make the bridal bouquets. The one I am holding is the one I made. We also made the pom poms which hung in the entrance. That was a new experience for me. Rose’s brother added the gold fish to Joe and Rose’s glasses at the table. We had cheese cubes, ranch pretzels, fruit kabobs, and punch or peach tea for appetizer. Main course was grilled chicken sandwiches, a chip mixture, broccoli salad, raspberry yogurt salad, and an ice cream desert.

We played volleyball in the evening after the wedding. That was fun, even though there were 30 teams!! At the end we played several games with just a few of us and that was a lot of fun!! Jen and I flew back to Colorado on Sunday. It felt very good to be home again!


March update

Well, I haven’t been doing very well at posting. 😦

We had a lot of company the month of February. Jen’s sister Rose came out the beginning of Feb for 10 days or so. Their parents also came over a weekend over that time. Then the last weekend in February Dana and Shari Beth (Jen’s brother and wife) came to visit. I didn’t think I would get see them, but because of the wreck and not getting to the wedding, I was able to spend the weekend with them.

March has been a good month so far. Right now Arlin and Becky are in Virginia for revivals and to visit Sheldon and Janell. Sunday I went with Jared and Heidi to Denver and we came back Tuesday. I helped with the boys and was just there for Heidi. That was a fun spur of the moment vacation. Glad it worked out that I could go help her! You can keep remembering her and her family in prayer.

Jen just left yesterday for Indiana and will be there until Rose’s wedding. So, I have the house to myself until Tuesday when Arlin’s get back. Then I leave on Wednesday the 19th, headed to Indiana for Rose’s wedding. I’m looking to hanging out with Rose, Nellie, and Andrea as well as my other friends that will be there!

Another prayer request: Remember my student Haley. She has been fighting a “migraine.” They have done a lot of doctoring and did an MRI, but they have not been able to figure anything out. She missed 3 weeks of school when it started, and has missed more than not since then. Mostly it seems they are just controlling the pain, but haven’t been able to take it away. She came to school this morning but then threw up and left. Just pray for healing and that they could figure out what the problem is. Also pray for her parents as they deal with it.
