Last week was a whirl of activity. From Tuesday to Thursday we were in Chicago for my oldest daughters yearly team appointment at Shriners and some dentists appointments also. This time around we stayed at a Ronald McDonald house. The kids loved the elevator, play rooms and general freedom of being able to wonder around unlike the confinement of a regular hotel. Arriving home Thursday we had friends come that evening and they stayed the weekend. We also have a Saturday night study in our home which my husband teaches. Sunday our friends left and the snow arrived!
