The Bible Study, Thursday evening, was well attended. There
was a first time visitor so I spent some of the time reviewing last weeks lesson. Meaning I had to stray from my notes, that is always more difficult. Friday, my throat was still bothering me, so I didn't set up the stand at the market. Angie and I spent most of the day working on finances and getting a financial plan for the coming months. On Saturday, I noticed that it would be rainy for the next few days, so I herded the kids outside and played the game, "Tickle Monster". It consits of me chasing the kids and tickling the one that I catch. They seem to really enjoy it and it gets them some good excercise, and me too. Thankfully, I remembered to turn the clocks back before going to bed. Sunday, there was a conference at the church in Carcassonne in the afternoon, so after services, I took the Angie and the kids back home and returned for the conference. It was very informative. A former Catholic, who was even an instructor in a Catholic school, who had converted to Christianity, gave his testimony and spoke about the Bible and Catholicism. Sunday evening, seeing as it was Halloween, I wanted to scare the kids with some scary stories. Didn't happen. Even with just candle light, the kids could not be scared. Especially Micah, who was analyzing the stories and predicting what would happen next. Monday we ate lunch with our friends and had a really good visit. Five hours of french really gets you messed up the rest of the day. There was French words and phrases popping out the rest of the day. That is good though and I would like that to happen more often. Today we are preparing for Lilia's birthday party that will happen in a few hours. Her birthday is tomorrow, but they start school tomorrow. This will be the first birthday party, entrirely in French, that we have had. Lilia will be 11 years old. Wow. Everyone told me that time would go by fast once I had children. They were right. Well, I am going to help make the final preparations for the party. Enjoy the pictures showing what the kid have been up to the last few days, painting, playing Legos, and enjoying Arianna.
