What's been going on here...

Last Wednesday our dear friends The Pauls' Family came down all the way from Canada to visit us. Remember The Pauls' were the reason we took our trip to Canada in March. This time it was their turn to come our way, and let me tell you it's a long way! We were ALL so excited about their visit. When they arrived last week it didn't seem like it could be true that they were standing in our yard in Tennessee. I'm not sure who was the most excited to see each other the 19 children or the 4 parents :) All of the children get along so well, you wouldn't have ever known that there were 23 of us in the house. For 7 days and 6 nights we had wonderful fellowship, and then the dreaded day came....they had to head back home. We felt like they just got here and we weren't ready to let go and send them on their way. We all have been very weepy and blue since they left. Now we have set our sites on our next time together, Lord willing winter 2010. Our family hopes to take another trip to Canada to visit with The Pauls.

We are thankful for the time spent together and pray that their travels home are safe.

Pictures of the past week coming!
