New Happenings

Just a few new things going on:
The new China referrals for this month came in. Judging by the speed with which the CCAA is moving, we may have our referral as early as November, but December is still the most likely. That means travelling to China in Jan, Feb, or March.....BBRRR!

Homeschooling is going great. We are really loving it. We get to do what we want, when we want, take breaks as needed, go to the bathroom as needed etc. We start the day reading a chapter from the scriptures, singing a hymn, having a prayer together and then saying the Pledge of Allegiance - it is exactly what I want for my children. We are using the curriculum from Calvert School and so far have been quite happy with it.

We have just about all our paperwork ready to go to Russia. We are just waiting for 2 more things to come through. We have recently learned that we will both have to make the first trip to Russia and the second trip. It will cost more than we had anticipated, but we are so grateful this is moving forward. Thank you, thank you to everyone that has been hoping and praying along with us.

My grandfather had a very close call last week. He had a heartattack and some other medical problems. We have all been praying. He is in a very good VA hospital though and he just came out of surgery and reports have it that he is joking with the nurses already. What a blessing.

Everything is going well, we are feeling good and Robert is pretty much enjoying his new job. We love Frankfurt and all the options we have here. We are also (surprisingly) enjoying living in an apartment.
