Friday the 24th was our six-year anniversary. Yay! We had such a great day! We were going to go apple and peach picking out at Eschelman's Farm, but they had too many vehicles end up stuck in the mud because of a week of torrential downpours; no fruit picking there. So, we went to the zoo instead. Joel lovedlovedloved his first time on the carousel! Then Joel got to spend his first night away from his mom and dad... and loved every moment. (And I was worried he'd miss us... silly mama...) We went out to eat and watched three movies and slept in until we felt like getting up. Phenomenal.

Neil organized a block party for our circle Sunday. What a great time! There were some people who didn't even know each other who finally got to meet after years of living a few houses from each other. Lots of kids, lots of noise and running and bubbles and bikes, lots of food and conversation. This is the first block party in 17 or 18 years for our circle, and it was a blast.

Our friends Ryan and Holly have a little 5 month old foster baby. The joy in their home is radiating throughout the whole world. Holly actually ran over to our house barefoot the other day to tell us! It is incredibly marvelous to experience this with them.

Classes are going well. Micro will be very interesting and psyc will be... over in 15 weeks.

I got a call this morning from my dear Andrea, and got to hang out with her for two whole hours this morning while she was in town! What an incredible blast. She is definitely going to change the world. She left to go back to Columbus in a Greyhound bus, something that I've never experienced. She said that last time she went back in a Greyhound, the driver got lost and it took them 6 hours to get from Toledo to Columbus. Seriously.

Joel is coming down with a cold, so this week I plan on trying not to get it.
