An Ode to Melanie

This post is dedicated to Melanie, my French tutor and friend.  She will be moving back to France in two weeks.  It will be a great loss to my family and to me.

Donuts for Cole's 8th birthday. Yum!

Doing what we like best: making maps.

Good Bye, Melanie.

Note from mom: Melanie, I pray this will not be a forever good-bye.  I very much hope we will see you again.  You have poured yourself into these children for almost 3 years.  I am so grateful to you.
God be with you.   Love - Kathleen

Mommy post - Roti for dinner

Gabe gave me the blog today.

I wanted to dedicate a post to a dear friend who moved all the way out to Manitoba to follow God's will for her family.  Although it was a blessed decision, I miss her terribly.  She had often dropped hot food on my doorstep, helped my family, and my mother, and my sister with running our homes. She provided endless support while I tried to teach these little minions of mine. It was a pretty one-sdied relationship looking back!!

I won't formally name her, she's a shy kind of lady - but hopefully one of her lovely kids will read the blog and let her know.

So here is what I made for dinner last night and I thought of you, Ro.  
We all thought of your lovely family while we ate.
