Today all 24 of us ( us and our friends) went to church. The kids went to Sunday school classes, us four adults sat in on the service. Afterwards we came home for lunch and then our friends left for their long journey home. It didn't take long for one of my girls to remark how quiet it was now that they were gone! Can you imagine that? 15 kids considered to be too quiet? Hmmm.
Now we find out that our friends are stuck in a hotel room because the highway is closed due to snow! Hopefully it will clear up in the morning so they can get home.
It has been record cold here where we live or so I have been told. The wind breathes cold straight into the core of your bones-- I wonder if it is this cold in Ukraine?
I spent the last hour or so planning out the next few days of curriculum for not three but eight kids! I am so excited and nervous all at the same time. And yet I feel like this is the right thing for them, for our relationship, for our family.
I better get to bed now-- everyone resumes school starting at the crack of dawn! Since we have been going to bed rather late these last two weeks and waking up late it should be an interesting morning around here.
