Yesterday we hit a traffic jam on the way to church, and if we were going to make it anywhere on time, we had to go elsewhere, so we pulled off the highway and went to a different church. The cool thing was that I saw a girl I had met many years ago at a conference, and so renewed the acquaintance. She is actually one month more pregnant than I am. I’m looking forward to catching up with her some more.
We had invited people over for 4pm which was great, because we had a few hours to relax and rest before company came over. The guests of honor were a family I had never met before. About a year ago Dave randomly saw the parents of a girl he had known in high school, and they mentioned that she and her family were moving into the area. So since then we have been playing phone tag and trying to set a date to meet up. We finally nailed it down for yesterday. They have two kids, a 4 yr old girl and a 2 yr old boy. We also invited the Howards, who stayed after the other company had left. Naturally we played some poker. Three tournaments later, all was said and done by 11:45pm – I think that’s some sort of record for us!
