Sometimes when there aren't any posts for a while, it's because I'm being lazy. Sometimes it's because we haven't done anything of interest. But in this case it's because we've been really busy, and I haven't taken the time to post about it!
The last weekend in April, our friends Paul and Sandy De Jong came to stay with us for a few days. They attended a professional photographers' convention in Athens, and used us for room and board. We're so glad they did! We had a great time with them. We got to walk to downtown Commerce to show them the future home of our family and the coffeehouse. Just today, Joe asked me if Paul and Sandy could come back to see them! Paul is a fantastic photographer, and you can see his website by clicking on the link listed to the right ...

Last Tuesday/Wednesday, Kaity took the Iowa standardized test. I don't know anything about it, except that I'm pretty sure it's required by the state. Anyway, one of the other homeschooling moms administered it to several of the students. I don't have a clue when we'll get results back to find out whether our oldest child is a genius or a dolt. (Just kidding! Please don't send angry letters!)
But Kaity being tested meant that Joe and I were able to spend some quality time together alone! We went up to Spencer Park in Commerce and played Skip-Bo, which Joe calls "Dis-Bo" for some reason. We also ran errands and generally enjoyed ourselves.
