Jan. 2007

Hello to you all and Happy New Year!

We had a great vacation. Christmas was really special since it was Megan's first Christmas with us. It is hard to believe that she will be two next week and that we will have only had her a year next month. Time has really flown by and we are so blessed to have her in our family.

The day after Christmas we had some friends (Abby, Erin, Amanda, and Becky) come from the mainland. They spent about a week here with us. We took them around the city and just enjoyed having them around. We really miss them and it was a treat to have them here. The kids REALLY enjoyed their attention. The best for me, md, was watching Matthea when they arrived at the house. She honestly remembered them. She was so thrilled to see them, jumping in her seat and clapping her hands. If it had been strangers, she would have hid her face and not looked at them for a time. But, that was not the case.

Many of you probably heard about the earthquake that rocked the southern part of the island. Well, we are in the north and felt nothing. We were outside walking around, as well, and those more experienced with earthquakes say you don't always feel them when walking around. We read it in the paper the next morning.

School has started up and rolling right along. Uwe and I are finishing up the JVB Basketball season. We are now 3-2, which isn't too bad for a young team. We have a tournament next week and hope to do well there. They are a fun group of girls and we've enjoyed co-coaching together.

Sorry so long to get this out and news so old. I'll get out the new newsletter for March this week as well.
