family, family, and more family

This week has been filled with family! Tim's whole family was here in MN for almost a week so we were busy cooking, laughing, shopping and spending time together. My parents even joined in the festivites when we took the boys to the zoo. Chase, our nephew, was more than thrilled to have 5 adults to play with. Amy and Christi left on Tuesday and Tim's parents and brother, Larry leave tomorrow. They are staying with us tonight. After having Am here for a few days, Amy and Christi for a few nights, and all the rest, we have sufficiently broken our house in for guests - it's been great! Please come to visit anytime!!

Am's party was great, it was wonderful to spend time with college freinds and reconnect. We will miss you when you leave again Am! She leaves for another year in Japan this Sunday. You can also check out her blog at

On the job front, Tim has a second phone interview next Wednesday for a job we are really excited about. It's with the National Marrow Donor Program for a recruitment coordinator. It's right up his alley in terms of experience. So please pray that this interview would go well and would lead to another!

Other praise God news: the mother of a dear friend was just given a clear report for what we thought was a cancerous growth. Praise the Lord!!! We rejoice with this family as they celebrate God's goodness!!

Today is the end of the first week that neither Tim or I have had to go to work during the day. It's been an unusual week given all the family time, but are greatly enjoying this opportunity to be together all the time. It's wonderful! There will likely not be another time where neither of us are working, so we are blessed.

For all you ladies out there, I bought the CUTEST little dress at Marshalls for $10 to wear to Tim's reunion next month. It's white and bright lime green, in a sorta fifties style, very fun! Can't wait to show you.

Well, it has been a fun week. It was great to be able to do so many things together. I think we will all remember this as a great time together.
