Mom and Dad gone to the States!

Yes, it's true, my mom and dad are BACK in the states. But this time, it's for ministry reasons, and we didn't get to go. Although, i don't know if I'd really have wanted to go anyway!!

Dad left on monday, and mom left on Wedensday. This week our good friend Katka is staying with us. It's really cool, because Katka used to babysit us when we were still living in Havirov! (I lived there until I was six...I think.)

Next week, the wonderful Becca McMartin is going to stay with us. Another cool story. When I was really sick and had to leave last minute for Doctor's care in the States, Becca agreed to stay with the boys while we were gone, even though she didn't know how long it would be until we came back...ends up we didn't come back until a month later!! Becca really saved us in that time, it was really good for me to go visit the doctors in America. They found out exactly WHAT was wrong with me. (I was allergic to the mold in our house...REALLY allergic, I got high fevers and lost strength in my body)

So, I am really glad that I can have both of them stay with us in these days when my parents are gone. Thanks to the both of you for being willing to do that for us!!!

Caleb's Birthday!!

On the 20th of January Caleb turned 15!

We celebrated with our friends, the Ellenwood's, by visiting a medieval restaurant. Yes, it was a castle! It was so cool! I felt like I went back in time. Caleb really enjoyed it there - it was a very manly restaurant and perfect for him.

After we came home from the restaurant, we had dessert (chocolate cake) and opened a couple of presents.

All in all, I think he had a great day being celebrated! And if Caleb is reading this I'll say this to him again...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

These past couple of weeks have been full of tests and last minute grades. Because the first semester is almost over, the teachers have to do all the final tests so they can close up our grades. But finally, today, the grades closed, which means that I can relax now!!
