August 2, 2011
I had just wanted to welcome our team mates, the Floyd’s, back after their year of furlough. I served several meals over a couple days while they were settling back in. I also served up a not-so-healthy dose of food poisoning. Well, I guess we can’t be sure that I did it, but all 3 of their kids, 5 of mine and Jeff have been throwing up, stomach ache, feeling tired sick. Cleaning up vomit of 4 kids was not how I planned to spend my 3AM…..motherhood can be so unglamorous at times!

Made meat stew for lunch. We gagged at the first bite because it was so sour and not edible (was the pork bad?) Finally late afternoon I realized the mistake – I used 2 cups of lemon juice instead of chicken broth (Frozen in similar looking jars)!

We invited and hosted a Paraguay guy to speak at the high school about sexual purity. Please pray that his message fell on open ears and soft hearts. Oh how the teens of the town need this message!

Ryan signed up for futbol today. I think it will be great for him. i just hope the other kids playing haven’t had 11 years head start on him – seems they come out of the womb playing futbol here. His cleats were too small for him, but fortunately he fit into Jeff’s shoes (wow!).

August 6, 2011 – had youth over to play minute-to-win-it games. Very fun.

Oh no, I'm so sorry that you guys got food poisoning, that's just the worst!!!

We were just freezing lemon juice this week and I had to laugh about your lemon mix-up. I've done worse!

Happy birthday to Julia!!! Our little girls are less than 2 months apart. I hope that they can meet some day.

Hugs to you all and have a great week!
