This is what we are chewing right now. I don't know what it is!
Our friends have arrived, exhausted after flying Bangkok-Tokyo-LA-Seattle ... The 3 gloriously gorgeous children slept on the 'plane, and on arriving bounced on the trampoline, rocked on the rocking horse, rode on the trikes and fought with the toy swords. Now they're excitedly talking nineteen-to-the-dozen in Karen.

Mother, who is wonderful, speaks just a little English, and said to me 'My Friend Megan', with a beautiful smile on her face. And I said 'My friend P...' (We've been asked to keep names confidential) She reminds me of Ranee, Victor's Mum, and is gentle and caring in a similar manner.

Our guests are Karen, like Victor, and joined in when I sang 'Si Podre wa', a song Victor and his family taught us at Rachel and Victor's wedding. I was wearing my Karen clothes, and so was P. Mine were pinned, and she showed me how to wrap it without pins. It stayed up for about 5 minutes, and then began to slip off....

It is such a wonderful honour …

HAPPY 41ST WEDDING ANNIVERSARY MUM AND DAD! LOOK WHAT COCO IS HOLDING FOR YOU, BEFORE HER SCHOOL BUS!

We are going to have a family from Myanmar, with 3 children close in age to ours, stay with us this week for 2-10 days. We are very excited! They are refugees and settling in the USA, so we'll be able to stay connected to them after they leave our home. Kindly Eowyn and Coco said the children could sleep in their bunk beds and old pink cot! The sun is shining today and we're going out to have a picnic at the clay pools, on the Skykomish River, and to spend time with Bens' parents.

Love to you all,

Megs

Happy Birthday Uncle Jim!

Thank you dear family and friends for your loving support.
Yesterday morning, Nana dreamt Jesus was pulling her big toe, saying 'Are you coming home to me?' She left me a voicemail message saying 'I love you my daughter. See you in heaven!' Bens, Eowyn, Cosette and I went out to be with her. Her delightful sense of humour is very much still present - there was much laughter around her. In this photo Nana is being His Holiness the Dalai Lama, whilst Kat and I laugh uproariously. The three of us had a very precious time, reading from 'Celtic Daily Prayer'. Nana said in heaven she'd have the teapot ready and waiting for us, and Eowyn and Coco (who were holding her hand and stroking her feet) for an 'Ady Ladies' Teaparty' in heaven. Bens, Nana and I sang together, songs about Jesus she loves. Bens wonderful laughter and Nana's wonderful laughter joined together, and Kat's and Nana's Mom Kaye's. It sounded like a beautiful symphony. Na…
