The next big events in our lives are going to be helping Flynn move to a different apartment next weekend, and a quick trip up to Nashville to attend my future brother in law's graduation and bring my sister home. Then the whirl of wedding plans can begin in earnest!

This morning I met Jennifer at Starbucks and we had an all too short visit. What a treat to be able to GO OUT and visit with a friend! What a treat to visit my favorite of the three Longview Starbucks!

I think the best thing in the whole trip was the Pompeii exhibit--worth every penny of the entrance price, and even more enjoyable since I had just finished teaching ancient Rome in history class. The achievements of the Romans were amazing, but you realize that if they had been a God-fearing society they could have done much more!
I've been settling back into home life, and re-learning a lot of things. How odd to throw all your trash in one bin, be able to run out for things you forgot, and to have siblings much older in real life than they are in your head! It was nice and cool when I first arrived, but now it's warming up. Hopefully this coming weekend will be as cool as advertised...
Here's a picture of Jill and I freezing on our first morning in London. Good thing I had lovely hand knit items to combat the chill!

I can't believe that I'm flying out of Sakeji on Thursday, and Lusaka on Saturday! How time flies... Now I just have 101 little loose ends to tie off before I can leave! Who knew it was so much work to go on furlough...
I am almost completely restored to health now--thanks for all the prayers! Now if I can just keep well while traveling...
