A Day With Friends

A Day With Friends | Preparing the Soil

 

We’re still ten days away from dad returning from Indonesia. And let me say…we’re ready. I’m ready.

In the meantime, though, we’re trying to find the balance between keeping busy and resting before what will be a pretty eventful summer.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of spending the day at a friend’s house. With thirteen kids between the two families, there was never a dull moment (I think Michelle and I sat on the porch together for no more than three minutes). But the kids had a great time and it was so refreshing to get out of the house.

As the first twinges of missing Indonesia start to be noticeable, I am thankful for friends and the reminder that we are starting a new life here. I don’t know how long we’ll be here, but there is much truth to the proverb,

The grass is greener on the other side where you water it.

 

So we’re going to water while we’re here and enjoy the beauty.

Lots of trampoline fun (with only one minor injury!)
