Last Graphite Retreat

This week is a busy one! Tuesday through Thursday were spent up at Graphite for the year end retreat for the Bible College. It was fun to relax a little and let the students play with the kids. Thanks guys, if any of you read this. :)
Tonight is Dennis' graduation banquet at Heritage Seminary. The graduation itself is tomorrow, but we can't make it. So we plan to go tonight and take the baby with us. Our sitter for the evening got sick, but thankfully the Lord has provided some friends to watch the girls. It looks like it will be a late night.

Tomorrow is KLBC graduation. I don't know when we've experienced a more hectic semester than this last one. In many ways the graduation is bitter-sweet for us as well as the students. We are so relieved to have the frenzy of the school year over (both college and seminary studies) but at the same time we realize that this is our last KLBC graduation and that many things will be changing in the next few months. Many of you already know our plans for next fall, and if you don't I will undoubtedly be blogging about it soon.

Enjoy the pics! This last one is for you Mom VE- Squeaky opening her birthday present from you, right after we talked to you on the phone.

I am glad to see the pictures of the girls. Aria is definitely not the baby. You all are so precious and sweet. We will continue to pray for you in regard to this weekend as well as the future. I just can't imagine how Dennis has made it through, except by the grace of God. May He revive and strengthen you all. Our love, Mom and Dad

Looks like the girls enjoyed the retreat. Must have been great for them to have so much attention. Val, I expect that it was no little undertaking to pack up the family for several days away with such a new baby - I guess the feeding is built in - you don't have to worry about sterilizing lots of bottles etc.

We are looking forward to seeing you in a couple of months in NE.

Love, A. Jean
