This past weekend was full of life adventures. We picked up our friend Lasse from the train station who is on his way home to Germany. The boys loved having him around. They played a ton of video games, ate burgers at Red Robin, watched a hockey game, cleaned out our basement storage area, and spent many hours living life to it's fullest. It was a perfect weekend. Now we are gearing up for our next round of visitors. My old friend Shawn from high school is passing through town, my in-laws arrive an hour after Shawn leaves, and on Thursday my husbands college professor and his wife come to town. This may be too busy for some, but I love it busy. I love my life. I am grateful for all that is good and for the trails I have been given because without the trials the joys would not be so sweet.
