Here we go with the final installment of Project 365 for this month. As I mentioned in the previous posts, we're in Colorado this week. WHERE WE HAD SNOW! Lots and lots of snow. IN OCTOBER. So silly to think we'd get through this furlough without any snow :)
We arrived in Denver Tuesday, where it was raining. But the rain soon changed to snow and by Wednesday morning when we looked out the window, we saw this:
And it was still snowing! The forecast did not bode well for our plans to drive south to visit friends in Cañon City, but we decided to go for it anyway. Like the unofficial postal worker's creed: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night, stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds", we didn't want to let a little -- well, a lot -- of snow prevent us from visiting good friends.
And we're so glad we went! It's always fun to connect with friends where you can just pick up where you left off, isn't it? Our friendship goes back to our homeschool days, when their son and our son were practically inseparable. We had a lot of fun catching up and hanging out.
The next morning when the sun came over the mountain, the landscape just sparkled:
As we prepared to leave, we realized the front of the car had been plastered with a thick coat of snow and ice from the trip the day before:
Back in Denver, we headed to Ivan's brother's house where we've been relaxing and enjoying time with the extended family. Including the newest member, Jadin, shown here with proud parents John and Amanda.
Ivan and his brother went to an aviation museum this morning...
This coming week is going to be C-R-A-Z-Y and I don't anticipate much computer time as we countdown to D-day (departure day): November 8th. However, I will be back with news of the biopsy results. It's been such an encouragement to hear from those of you who are praying! Thanks so much. How wonderful to be part of such a wonderful community of prayer warriors!
