I miss my family!
About two weeks ago now, we took our trusty 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue in for some simple repairs. Sadly, a near $2,000 repair estimate came back. We ran around in circles for two days, but in the end decided to purchase a newer car. God provided, but the car-to-be needed to be picked up in our home state of Iowa.
So, my amazing mother-in-law took the train out to CO. Then about one day later, Carrie, Samuel, and Peg (she's the fabulous mother-in-law) took off for IA to trade-in our old vehicle for the new. That was Saturday morning, and I am still alone in CO.
Today I got an email from my father-in-law. His wife has taken a lot of pictures since this is the first time Samuel has got to be in that grandparent home. I teared up looking at those pictures. My precious family 500+ miles away!
They get back Friday, and I can't wait!
For those who may be wondering what in the world I have been doing . . . I've been writing my paper for Dr. Blomberg's "Gospels and Acts" class, working, and staying on top of the normal seminary duties.
Isn't my family cute??
