Tons has happened since the last time I wrote. We have finished the soccer session last night and didn't do too good, but we still had fun. Another session starts right up.
Today is Richard's Birthday. I would love to make it a big deal and spend tons of money. But we went earlier this month to see Brian Regan live for his birthday. That was kinda expensive and we had a nice dinner so today we are keeping pretty low key. I baked him cupcakes to take to work like he is in kindergarten but its still something special. :-) I got him coffee in bed and had two books to give him, so I think he is having a good day. I love spending these special days together married.
April 12th we had a retreat with our new sunday school class. Only 4 couples total attended but it was a very nice time for us to get to know these couples better and we enjoyed the whole fun packed day thoroughly. Here are some pictures of our new friends at the event. :-)
April is also the month that my brother is coming to live with us for the summer. He arrives in Newark NJ tomorrow. So we have been working on getting our spare room set up like a bedroom. Our new friends graciously gave us a futon for Jeff to sleep on so that was very very generous of them. I'm excited to get to know my brother again. I feel like I haven't even spent that much time with him for almost 7 years (except for a little blip in there right before my wedding). So I'm looking forward to this time to get reaquainted with him. From what I hear he is a grown young man now. YIKES! He does need a job for the summer and then he will be going to NBBC in the Fall.
Richard has 2 weeks left of his first semester at Seminary. We will both be ecstatic when it is all over and we have the summer to enjoy together (of course not without my brother though :-)). Richard has been very diligent in getting his work done but it still seems endless. He has applied himself thoroughly and has gleaned so much from this semester so I'm happy for that. I will be even happier when he has some free time to spend with me though. :-)
As I look to the month of May I get so excited. Lots of stuff going on. My brother's graduation in Boston. My parents 25th anniversary party in Boston. Our entire family being together again for them both (the last time we were together was a year ago and now we have a baby to add YEAH!). Spending Memorial day weekend with my family. A trip to DC to see Wes and Katie Kouba. There is so much to look forward too. And no stress of school or those school bills. YEAH!
