Today I am going to stay home all day. I am not going to set foot out of our yard!

John and Johanna's wedding was just lovely, as expected. For those of you who don't know them, Johanna is the oldest daughter of the Forsters-that is the Doorpost people. Johanna is about as sweet as a girl can possibly be. One that you think "My, if my daughters could grow up half that well!" She has been a blessing to our family, helping me after Joseph was born and carrying babies about the church and just being sweet so that all my little ones love her. Of course everybody loves them both and they were surrounded by lots and lots of well wishers at the wedding.

But we had an extra special blessing to give as my youngest daughter threw up all over the dance floor. Hah. Now they will be sure to never forget us! (Ugh, it would be us.) So we made hasty arrangements for oldest daughter to get a ride home with another family (It would have been a tragedy for her to have to leave a dance early.) I thought maybe it was too much chocolate and a little too rowdy dancing at the "Margery Hoy" (the Forsters always do country contra type dances-which is what we prefer as well.) but now some of the others are a bit droopy, so I guess it was a bug.

Now there is nothing major coming up and I'm so glad. There is a weekly group we get together with to listen to some Vision Forum tapes (Entrepreneurial Bootcamp series.) and softball games. But other than that things will settle down for a while. (I hope.)

So today for the first time in what feels like forever, I am not going anywhere. I am going to clean house, water the garden, work on the little boys' phonics, maybe bake some bread. I am going to enjoy every second of it too. :)

Oh poor little F. She must have felt terrible. Tink has never gotten over throwing up in the parking lot of Country Buffet. She doesnt even want to eat there anymore.

Sounds like you've been busy. I'll give you a call soon and stop by.

My water broke at Arby's once...does that count in the Humility Department?

I have always wondered what I would do if my water broke somewhere. But it hasn't ever broke on its own anyway. That's a story I'd love to hear.

As to F. a friend remarked to me that everyone will remember it was one of us, but nobody will remember which one. So I guess we get to bear the embarassment together.
