We're alive, I promise!
The last few days have been back to the grind, for us (and for you, most likely). I promise we are alive, although I feel like I haven't talked to several friends in forever! We had a good, but at times hard, trip to see our family. Dustin's sweet grandmother, Ninelle we called her, passed away while were in Lampasas. Thankfully, we were able to extend our trip and we are glad God had us there during that time. Dustin's busy writing a paper that his professor gave us an extension on due to TX/the funeral, and I am beginning Quarter 3 with one less girl. My new ratio of boys to girls is 14:5. Thanks to my friend Andrea's advice, I tried to start the year off reviewing the rules and procedures, treating it as a new year with HIGH expectations. The kids are doing great. (Maybe I should start off each Monday like that...ha!) They even behaved well today, despite the snowy/sleet-y (?) weather outside. We had a great time with family and some friends in TX. We miss them already. However, it simultaneously so good to be back. We haven't worshipped with our church family in 3 Sundays! We are missing them! I guess that's all I have time for at the moment. Lots of love.
