Back to School!

Well, today marks the official end of Christmas break. I'm sad! I love it when all my kiddos are at home with me. It just feels right. But, there are perks to them being in school all day--my house stays cleaner, our groceries last longer, and it is much quieter around here. I kinda like the quiet, but if I'm honest, I really miss the noise!!

John needs the quiet right now. He's got a big project due in about two weeks. He's working on a book for NavPress about world religions. It's pretty straightforward material, and part of it is actually re-writing a lot of stuff that another guy wrote that wasn't exactly what NP was wanting. He got summoned for jury duty today--not exactly timely--but so far, he's only on standby. He has to check in later this morning to see if he has to report later this afternoon. Oh the joys of citizenship!!! I'm hoping he can escape his civic duty this time around.

We've had our first visitor of 2006! Our former worship pastor was in from Chicago earlier in the week, and he stopped by for a quick bite to eat with us. It was good to see him and catch up. Tomorrow we're expecting two more visitors. Some friends who used to live in Arkadelphia are skiing in Winter Park and are coming to spend tomorrow night with us. WE LOVE VISITORS and it looks like we're off to a great start in 2006!

Well, I'm signing off for now. I've stepped back into my role as Abbey's playmate now that her siblings are back in school. The princess dress-up clothes are beckoning!
