No more double rent!

We are so happy to announce that our house on Queen Anne has finally been rented no more double rent! We had been praying about this as we're approaching May and would have had to pay two rents again, and we thank God that we don't have to and can move on from that place for good. Hooray! God is good.

I'm still behind on photos, but will have more to add, including some from the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival we went to up north on Saturday with our friends Johnathan and Jenny. The temperatures are warmer now and spring is very lovely here in the Northwest!

Trip to Ithaca!

Wow, 2008 has not been a good posting year for me so far. I'll try to be better at it now that we're mostly settled in our new apartment. I'll have some pictures of that soon, as well as of our recent trip to Ithaca. We just got back this afternoon and had a great time with Tim's family, as well as some friends we were able to reconnect with. One highlight was that we got to talk to Tim's sister Anna, who's spent the last year in India, via Skype. We're looking forward to her return to the States at the end of next month, and hoping to be out in Ithaca again in September, when Dave and Mandy will be back on leave. Nine months is definitely too long to go without a visit to Upstate New York! Photos of our great time with the fam, their new kitchen and dining room, the girls (who are getting so tall!), and Ithaca still without leaves (spring usually hits in May, but it was sunny and snow-free) to come soon!
