The past weekend went well. We divided the kids up between us. I took Arianna and Micah to Caleb's swimming lesson, he had the end of school swimming party. Meanwhile Angie took Lilia to watch Andrew's end of year program. We joined them after the swimming was over. Afterwards, Angie and Lilia went to the youth meeting in Carcassonne. Sounds like it was a great time. They did a photo scavenger hunt at the Walled City of Carcassonne. They had to take pictures of certain things and whoever had the best won. Sunday we attended the an English speaking church in Mirepoix, about 30 minutes west of us. We enjoyed the services and fellowship. It is basically an Anglican church, but the members are from several different denominations and are mostly English who live in France. I did get several presents for Father's day, mostly clothes, which always useful. Monday we had a guest over, a lady that I meet at the Market on Friday. She is Christian, and has a wonderful testimony and sweet spirit. She has some beliefs that are different than ours, but we still hope that we can fellowship with her and minister to her. Yesterday, the first day of summer, was the warmest day of the year so far. I think it actually got up to about 90, even though the forcast said 82 for a high. In the evening we had a three thunderstorms roll in, one after the other. It was a rare treat. It also cooled things off. It was still real warm in the gym when I had basketball practice. I am still enjoying practice and we are hoping to invite some of the guys over during summer. There is one more story I need to share. While Angie was putting away some clothes she noticed that the boys closet was wet. After an inspection, we discovered that one of the boys had slept walked and thought their closet was the bathroom. We suspected Micah and after school confronted him about it. Caleb, however, spoke up and said, "I think it was me". He went on to explain that he needed to go to the bathroom, it was dark and he looked around until he found and door and then . . .went. He said he thought it was a little too close to his bed. We all had a good laugh about it. The fun part came a little later. Andrew was looking for a drink in the fridge when he found some pineapple juice in a jar. He brought it to us to see what it was. I immediately saw a golden opportunity. I called Caleb and Micah to us and told them that someone had gotten up during the night and thought that the fridge was the bathroom and that I wasn't upset, I just wanted to know who it was. The boys were speechless. I asked for the jar and took a drink and said, "It is you Caleb I can tell." I wish you could have seen the look on his face and Micah's. His eyes were big. After a few moments he said, "No, because everybody's tastes the same." We couldn't hold it any longer and had to laugh. Tuesday we had another friend over for lunch. She is going to be returning home during summer, the first time in 14 years. We will miss her over the summer, but we are happy that she has the opportunity. Pray for her because her home country is having political troubles and she is a little worried that once she arrives it will be difficult for her to leave again. Angie is currently visiting with a friend in Carcassonne, getting a little break from the kids. God bless, JASON
