News Bits

Here's what's going on in our lives...
  1. Tom continues the juggling act of life without nanny. He certainly is a man on the run. But he seems to be keeping all those balls in the air, so that's good. There is a new nanny arriving from Hong Kong in about 5 weeks. In the meantime, he has been managing alright, so he tells me. The boys are doing well, probably eager for summer to begin. Tom tells me he might have found "THE" house plans. Annette and Tom have always wanted to build on the current lot they now live on, and Tom continues to keep that dream going for both of them. That would be exciting for him and the boys and keep Tom extra busy! WE'll see!
  2. Dad is getting married! He and his fiancee, Menny, are planning to get married on Aug. 22. Menny is actually Steve's aunt (his mom's sister) so we already knew and loved her and her children. We are very happy for Dad and Menny. They have been busy buying a house, trying to sell 2, buying a motorhome and so on and so on. They just don't stop!!
  3. We made a 5 day trip to BC to visit Steve's brother, sister-in-law and children. Jeff works on an island called "Keat's" directing a Christian kids' camp. His parents celebrated their 40th anniversary and flew us all out there to celebrate!! It was a wonderful time of family fellowship, hiking, reading and loving nature and each other. Thanks, Mom and Dad, and Happy Anniversary!

AND

  1. We are moving too! Spur of the moment, we decided to buy a house! We have always wanted to buy a bungalow on a specific street in our city. It is one street over from where I grew up. So when I saw a "For Sale" sign last Wed. I had to inquire. We went through it, loved it and put in an offer. There was already an offer accepted, so we had to put ours in with no condition, and we got it!! It was very sudden and unplanned (we were NOT looking to move! We love our current house) but it is our dream home so we went for it! So now we have to sell our house by the end of August! Wish us luck!

If I had high speed, I'd show you pictures of all these things. Maybe in the new house!

Thanks for caring and reading about us. We are doing well.

PS: I didn't break anything playing soccer and even scored the opening goal of the season. Happy to still have all my parts intact! Although I was rather sore last weekend!
