All the latest

Favorite phone call:  Our son in CA calling to say that he is buying a plane ticket to come and see us in June for 11 days -Hooray!

Joy was asked to try out for vocals in the youth worship band and she made it. She sang Light of the World, which may have made her dad choke up because it is a song she learned while singing in the 'family band' years ago. Yay!

We bought a sweater stone and it really works!
Hooray for sweaters that look like new again! But what a mess. Those 'pills' have to go somewhere. (or everywhere!)

We are starting our next care-giving adventure on Saturday. My hubby's brother will fly in from CA and stay for about 4 months.
(he suffered a stroke while skiing when he was 50 years old and we take turns caring for him with another brother) So, we've been slowing gearing up for this by carrying things down from the attic and making things safe in our yard this week. And today was Get Ready for Uncle Phil day. -It involves cleaning and moving furniture and making our family room into a bedroom for Joy, who gives her room to him when he's here. I'm happy to say we've got the process down to 3 hours! I'm so exhausted.
Thank you, Subway for making us dinner, because I just didn't have it in me. : )

Friday night, before care-giving begins, we are having a bunch of teens over. -One big 'hurrah' before life has to be low key and quiet after 7:30 PM. -If things go well, we will still have 'quiet hurrahs.' : )
But we'll have to see how things go. Sometimes dealing with brain damage is not a big deal and other times it is all we can handle. But God is faithful in the hard times.
