New Back Door!!



Yesterday our friends Sean and Laura came over and helped up put in a new back door. I'm so excited about it! Our old back door was an interior door and it would swell and shrink depending on the weather. During the summer we could barely get it open- one had to yank on it and plaster would fall off the wall when one would try to close it.

Laura and I took the truck to Home Depot while Brian and Sean tore the door out. It took about 6 hours total and only 2 trips to Home Depot, so not bad. :-)

Thanks Sean and Laura- you guys bless us in so many ways!

Stephen's Country

Just to let you know how Stephen's extended studies activity went.
This last Thursday was the 4th day of it and he needed to take some type of food. I was out of everything! Hadn't gone shopping and was cooking with other things, so hadn't thought about not having white flour or sugar... So I searched for Swedish recipes and found Pickled Fresh Cucumbers. YAY! There are so many other things I could have made him, if I had put more thought/time into it. Like: Swedish Raisin Rye or Snickerdoodles. Oh well. He enjoyed the pickles. I confess, I haven't tried them, he said they were sweet and I really don't care for sweet pickles. But he was happy with them, so that's what mattered. :-) Makes me happy.
Stephen had all the kids (8 of them) guess, then he showed the Swedish flag and one of his friends figured it out, then he told them it was by Findland and Norway and all the kids got it. They had just studied geography earlier in the day.
