Busy busy days!
I have had fun getting to know Carrie. We have a lot of things in common, one of them being delight in digging through old junk :)
She's taken me a few places that are just the best.
Carrie and I (She is being so good and focusing on the road).
Clay and I almost got mobbed the other day by an Avon walk. There must have been 1000s of ladies wearing the same pink shirt. I am pretty sure it was for Breast Cancer awareness. It shut the city down for a little while, and they made us get off our tram and walk the rest of the way up the hill.
We hosted a "ho-down" birthday party for our Czech friend, Keri. There was a lot of boot-scootin' and Texas decorations. It was a lot of fun.
And then it rained a lot. For what felt like several weeks. The good thing was the temperatures were glorious- so cool and wonderful. The bad thing was breaking out the winter jackets again :)
The Ellsworths came through to see us on their way from Austin to Africa! We love this family. They encourage us every time we see them :) There are several more Austin peeps heading our way in the coming weeks.
The other night watching Clay play with the kids I was struck by how incredible the city is. How beautiful.
And we get to live here!
We finished planting on the patio. It's so fun to watch the plants grow and check on them each morning :) We have jalapenos, banana peppers, cilantro, lavender, verbena, and one lone bluebonnet :)
Now we even have a little table to sit at!
Just a few days ago we added another team name to our tally. We are on our way to completing a team set!
