skype is the best thing ever

I had started this post about all of these things I have been pondering in life right now, well, mainly just what my role is as a mother. But then, like usual, I rambled too much, and now I am trying to figure out how to best say what I want. So that will take some time. I just know that the Lord has put multiple things (Scripture, people, articles, etc.) in my life to keep reminding me what my job is and how I should be doing it. It's all been very encouraging, and I am grateful for the Lord's care for me in that way. Sometimes I feel like I can't do anything right and feel guilty for all that I'm not doing and could/should be doing! But God is gracious and his mercies are new every morning. :)

In other news, we had the opportunity to be a part of a missions conference this week with one of our supporting churches First Alliance Church of Erie. We didn't actually go to the US for it, but we did get to email stuff and then got to Skype with people on Saturday. It was really neat, and even Seth was willing to talk to people he didn't know on the computer! But the best part was seeing Grandma Y there as that is their church. Seth was a little confused but seemed to understand it later when I was able to better explain. We are so grateful to be a part of FAC in Erie. They are amazing prayer warriors over there! (And whoever invented Skype, THANK YOU! It's such a huge blessing to be able to video chat for free with our family and friends back home!)

Seth is writing and drawing in front of the computer while I make dinner on Saturday night during the Skype time. He ended up talking to someone and showing them his picture until I could come over and chat, too. :)

And the 2010-2011 basketball season is officially over! Kevin was in Salzburg all weekend for the final tournament, which they won, and so it is finished. They went undefeated this season and just had a great time...even with numerous injuries. We still have to have a basketball party sometime, but now Kevin will be home in the evenings. Yeah! We have had lots of people share links to basketball pictures, so I will have to get some of those and put them on here. There are some great shots by some great photographers!

(Oh, and the girls won their tournament in Salzburg, too! One of the senior girls ran up to me at church yesterday and gave me the biggest hug and was so excited to tell me about their victory. It was sweet. I will miss these seniors!)

Have no idea how they are going to send all the stuff that was collected for you guys. Your care package tub was OVERFLOWING and there were still people bringing things when I left. They better not take out the Double-Stuf Oreos I walked all the way to the back of Wegman's for - Ha!!
