Fall Break

This week is fall break. Jimmy is off work all week, and we are off from official homeschool for the week too. We came down to Jackson yesterday after our morning church service. We are staying with Jimmy's brother Russ and his wife Megan for a couple of days. We attended the church where we worshipped when we lived here last night. (We lived in Jackson for the 1st 9 years we were married. Jimmy completed medical school, residency, and fellowship while we were here.) We were delighted to visit with our old church family. They had never met Sam and had only seen Leah when she was a baby. It was great seeing all of our old and dear friends.

After supper with Russ and Megan at one of our old favorite restuarants, Mazzios, Megan and I had a rematch of Singstar. I finally beat her on one of the songs, "Material Girl". I think I had an edge, because I knew all of the words already, and Megan was probably 5 or 6 when that song was popular! Then Russ demonstrated a new game for us, Dance Dance Revolution. It was hilarious! Playing this game is much harder than it looks! It was a lot of fun, and we had a lot of laughs!

This morning we went for a family run. All 7 of us. We haven't all run together in quite a while, so it was fun. Jimmy and the children let me set the pace, so they had a pretty slow run. We did go 7 miles though.

Next on our agenda is to check out a new mall that has been built since we moved from here, and then supper with Russ, Megan, and one of Jimmy's high school friends and his family.

Enjoying our fall break!!
