The New Years got started of good and busy. Sunday services were good at Carcassonne. We enjoyed sitting in on the members meeting afterwards. A couple joined the church and I enjoyed hearing their testimony. Monday the kids started school back. Andrew is now going the whole day because I can proudly say that he is potty trained. YEAH! Monday, Angie and I did some shopping. Tuesday, I started catching up on some work and started my lesson. Basketball practice went well that evening. We have a game this Saturday that I hopefully will be able to attend. It all depends on if my paperwork is completed. Wednesday I took the kids swimming and Caleb to basketball practice. We also celebrated the "fête du roi". This is a French holiday which commemorates the arrival of the wise men to see Jesus. On this day you eat a special pastry (usually almond flavored) that has a small toy baked in it. The person who gets the piece with the toy gets to be the king and a paper crown is provided. Lilia found the toy, which I believe is her first time to do so. Bible study is this evening and I am excited about getting back into the weekly routing and seeing what this New Year brings for the work in France. I am not much for New Year's resolutions. I read that a "New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other". I would like to finish reading through the French bible this year and several other books. Arianna has not been sleeping good that last few days. Correction, she sleeps good, just not at the normal times. Night before last, she didn't go to sleep until 2:30 am. She is finally getting over a cold that started on New Years day. I pray that your New Year is a blessed one. JASON
