The Past Several Days...

Last Thursday, we ran to Target for some things. I let the kids get a slurpee (which helps them not touch anything - ha!) while I browsed for my few items... They're entertaining that's for sure...
James spent his birthday money on a new bicycle... "dirt bike" as he calls it...
Friday morning, I attended some of the Salvation Army's workshop training on the issue of human trafficking worldwide and in the state of North Carolina... Enjoyed some fellowship over lunch with some Imago Dei Church gals...
Saturday morning, the kids and I walked downtown Wake Forest to the winter Farmers' Market. The kids especially enjoyed buying a chicken for dinner (yes, it was plucked and ready to bake) and looking at the picture of this families' goats and hens... Quite the inquisitive kiddos... :)
Our dear friend, Joel, is visiting this weekend while he and his precious bride, Mary Ellen, are stateside from Ukraine. Joel shared some of his story with our IDC family on Sunday...
Here is an excerpt of reading time Sunday evening. We are trying to instill a discipline of daily reading for 20+ minutes a day. The key word is 'trying', ha. They are doing well! Progress not perfection is what we seek. :-) It is fun to watch when lightbulbs go off and advancement is made.

It love the verse on the back of this book:
"A friend loves at all times..."
Proverbs 17:17a
Grateful for you friends!
