It was fun to have a little reunion with our friends from Albuquerque. We met the Martins at our church in Albuquerque last year and then they moved to Dayton at the end of the summer for Chris to earn his PhD. Now the Martins attend Paul and Vashti's church in Dayton!
I have been trying for a really long time to catch Jonah's "babbling" on video. I finally got some. First he counts to three, then he goes on to tell us whatever else is on his mind. This babbling is constant in our house. I imagine that once he can really speak full sentences it'll be all over. I think he'll be one of those kids who just never stops talking.
The little kids were getting into too much mischief as we were trying to make dinner so we stuck them all in the playpen. A wonderful invention!
We had a great visit with Jon's family at his parents' farm. Jon's brother Chris and his family came out from Colorado so we were all there: nine adults (Jon's grandma came out as well) and twelve kids. Thankfully the weather was fairly mild and the kids got to spend a lot of time outside. It was a little crazy when everyone was in the house. Even Grandma commented that the place was, "swarming with children."
