Alive, but...

Yes, we're alive, and yes, we're at home. However we've been hit by some sort of flu bug that somebody brought home from somewhere. So we've been laying low this week! The biggest news items come from the day before the bug struck.

Last Saturday morning Nathan & Jeanine moved into their new home! It's only a short little drive for us and we're so glad to have them settling in close by... especially with less than two months before baby #3 arrives.

Last Saturday afternoon saw us helping our neighbors with an anniversary party for their parents. The catering we did for that event included making nearly 10 dozen deviled eggs. If anyone needs some tips on cooking/peeling/filling that many eggs, just drop me a line. :D

Last Saturday evening after the anniversary party we headed over to the park to meet with a few other families from church for a softball game. We had everyone on the field (except a couple of moms), and it was a lot of fun - aside from one casualty. Josh stepped in to pitch in relief for his sister... and his first pitch came right back at him, and he caught it. BUT, he caught it directly in front of his nose - as in he hardly got his glove up in time... so we had an injury delay and he had to leave the game. He hasn't been feeling too good, looking pretty or breathing well since, although the report from the road is that he's doing much better now. Yes, by Monday morning, he and the RV crew managed to load up and hit the road west all the same. They are finishing up at the Arizona convention today and despite the black nose/eye/face and a bought with the fever/flu thing they've survived thus far and hope to be home safe and sound early next week.

Aside from all that excitement, we've just been enjoying each other's company (and that certainly includes the grandkids!), doing house work, building a deck out back, and trying to get everyone healthy again!

Don't we get any pics of Josh's new look? Sorry to hear that so many of you are sick :( We will pray for a quick recovery and good rest for your family.

I still remember an early morning at the park - followed by a trip to the Emergency Room. At least this time, I can claim complete deniability! :)


All this did was make Josh more motivated to win the next game - opponents, beware!

Justin - you and various such incidents were not far from mind that evening...

Hubers - I'll have to check with Josh about that! Actually, Jonathan took a couple of pictures at the scene with Ethan's camera, but other than that, I think we only have one pic - and that was one they emailed from on the road and isn't really blog worthy. :@)

Hey Hubers - if you still want to see Josh smashed up, Dawn Beatty put together a slide show of the game and posted it on her blog... there are a few pics in there!
