My mom, Elli, with here namesake Elli K. on Elli K.'s 1st birthday
Well, today we are off to Georgetown for Elli Karrington's (Krystal's daughter) 2nd birthday party! I'm looking forward to the two hour drive there with Mom and all the boys. I like road trips, big or small :) Hopefully I'll have some good pictures to post later. Especially one with Mom and her name sake.
The house is a little bit quieter these days. Dad and a friend left on Thursday for Sudan. They will be there for two weeks. If you would please keep them and our families in your prayers we would really appreciate it! The emotions are a bit more raw this time. You would think that after all these years and 50+ trips later, we would be used to him leaving!
Last week was pretty busy for us. John's graduation was last Saturday, so both sets of grandparents were in and then on Sunday we had the party. There was also a big surprise for John! His good friend, Andrew, secretly came down with Amma and Papa! John was ecstatic :) It was a sad goodbye when Andrew also had to leave on Thursday morning.
It's hard to believe that John is graduated now and will be beginning a new chapter in his life soon. I'm so proud of him!
