All week we’ve had computer problems…but we have overcome those! We have also had a rather emotional week. Our sweet friend, Mary Alice, has been in the hospital lying comatose. She is not only our friend, but the grandmother of Brad, and the mother/mother-in-law of Bill and Martha. Oh, please dear friend, won’t you pray for each of these people? It is hurting my heart that they are suffering this sudden change of life.
In happier times, Chip went to a surprise party for Natalie on Monday. You have to know that they have known each other since they were about a year old. They’ve both really done some growing up. Check out the picture…you can probably tell which one is Chip.
Parker has been in school all week and really enjoying it, I think. The teachers are all great, and he’s the top dog in school–a good reason to stay at the elementary school for 6th grade. He’s headed to a birthday party this afternoon at the swimming pool, but I don’t think you’ll see pics of him on here like these of Chip!
Better get to work. I love reading everyone else’s Xanga, so I end up being on here for an hour, easily!
