Blessed Normalcy

I realize blessed, heavenly, normal days are slipping away as I don't make time to blog. 

We are double timing on school for a couple of more weeks. That take significantly more time than normal. 

We ARE making time to enjoy this for at least an hour most days of the week: 

Yikes - need to call the optometrist for contacts

and This...

We all enjoy the park differently. 

And....even when the weather is 70 degrees outside, and we are enjoying the bright sun...Japan is not far from our hearts and minds as evidenced by the sidewalk art I found. 

Yes, even though we love and are content with the bright sun - we can't help missing this...
The snowiest air base in the world in Northern Japan.  

We've had a couple of friends over to make logistics easier for their Mom and Dad. 

Wednesdays are always full. Our day began with a shared ride to base with Michael so we could go to PWOC.....then we had lunch and a commissary run...and PICKED UP OUR VAN with a brand new fuel pump. Michael says the van is a work of art....wait for it....a Van GO. 

Wednesday night we enjoyed Family Bible Study at the chapel. Well.....five us enjoyed the discussion of Romans 15 and one of us played quietly at the table with her band-a-loom - it works. 

Late at night - finally home again - I remembered the clean sheets needed to be put back on the bed. This cracks me up - the lengths we go to try to make the sheets play nicely with the new mattress topper. 

It is raining today! This makes me happy. We need to do lots of school today so we can visit the state capital tomorrow! ::grin:: We won't be tempted by the perfect weather. 

Oh yes, we've had DMV issues this week - maybe that will be another post...or not...and great things are happening with the older Gherkins....that needs to be another post....but for now...time to hit the books...table school is over and it's time for couch school. 

Choosing Joy!
