Germany plays their opening game in the World Cup today. We are still a little sick so we will be watching at home. Sarah was up half the night with a fever. She still has a small fever, but I'm pretty sure she'll be fine for school. I'm tired but better. So far everyone else is fit.
I have been watching the progress my sister Shelley has been making on her beautiful garden. She has a small park! My brother Rickey is getting married to Amy on Saturday. I'm sorry I will not be there. I'm glad I went to Oregon to help Mom when she got out of the hospital. I think I did the right thing, but It also cost me missing the wedding. I also did it for Juergen. He is a new elder at our church. The church has a retreat this coming weekend. Juergen really wanted our family to attend the retreat. If I was at the wedding, Juergen could not manage our 5 kids (especially Jessica) alone. So this coming weekend Juergen will help lead worship at the retreat, and I'll be there to support him. I guess that's life. You can not have it all... I definitely have my thoughts on my family in Oregon. I'm excited for Rick and Amy. It will be a beautiful wedding. My heart is there!
