We put our last guest on the plane today. We had a very busy, but extremely fun week. Most days we had at least 3 to 18 extra people in our home at all times. I took some of Josh's family to Mt. Rainier on Thursday and it was an absolutely beautiful day to show off "Our Mountain" as we lovingly refer to it. Friday Gordy took a huge group up to Seattle to check out Pike's Place Market and to get some fresh fish for lunch that day. All in all everything went smoothly and wonderfully.
We are still adjusting to the fact that Natalie is married, I think it will take some time to really realize that she is not coming back home. She lived in this home for all her 20 years of life. I am so proud of the young lady that Natalie has turned out to be, even though some think her too young to be married, we know that she is definitely ready and mature enough for marriage. I remember asking her one day what she was looking forward to most about getting married and she replied that she looked forward to putting together and decorating her home. She is a wonderful cook, a proficient house cleaner, very talented piano player and teacher, a servant and most of all a beautiful wife that adores her husband. Gordy and I could not be more proud of her if we tried. We are also so very happy about her choice of husband, we know he adores her and will be a great and Godly husband.
To change the subject a bit I just wanted to let you know that I'm back to reality of life on Friday when I take Luke into the hospital for his Baclafen pump trial. We will need to be at the hospital at 7 a.m. and will be spending close to 8 hours there. Please be praying that I will have a peace about taking him to the hospital, I will be honest it terrifies me to think about all the germs and people we will be in contact with. Also please pray that we will have a definite answer to whether or not we should put Luke through another surgery, if it will truly help him with his extremely bad muscle tone issues it will definitely be worth it, but it is not something that I want to do as he has already had way to many surgeries for a little guy of six.
Thank you once again for your prayers,
Luke's Mommy Suzi
