The Happenings of Late

Well I haven't kept up with this blog as much as I had hoped I would. We did have a very nice Memorial Day. We drove about an hour and half to Osseo, WI and spent the afternoon with homeschool friends who own a dairy farm. We had a great time. They have 9 children and we have 5 so it was quite the crowd. The kids hit it off really well. Micah was able to feed the baby cows, of course, I forgot the camera. One of their daughter's, Emily, plays the harp which is an instrument that Annaliese is interested in playing. So they gave us some good pointers. The funny thing is Annaliese a few weeks before Memorial Day had asked me about learning the harp. I told her (just assuming it would be difficult) but I told her that it would probably be very hard to find a harp teacher. And what happens we meet up with our friends, not having any idea that their daughter played, and they have two harps in their living room. She also told me that there are about 5 harp teachers in the Eau Claire area. I think God has a really funny sense of humor about timing sometimes. Hopefully things will work out to get her started with lessons this fall sometime. All in all it was a really fun day. Oh and on the ride home, Micah announced he wants to be a farmer when he gets older so he can have cows.

Then today May 30th, the girls and I all went to a bridal shower. That was really fun too. They are homeschool friends from a different group - one that is a little more local which is good - only half an hour away. We played your typical bridal shower games but one I hadn't done before too. I have 4 girls and another friend at our table has 4 girls also plus 5 boys but we were joking about keeping these ideas in the back of our minds for our own girls as they get older and will one day find themselves engaged to their beloved. It's hard to think that far ahead but I know how quickly that time will come, in the blink of an eye. They served a really nice tomatoe, onion and feta cheese salad - way too fattening with the oily dressing but oh so good to eat. I definately want the recipe for that.
