Plant a Tree

I’ve been yapping at Gary since Epiphany to dig a hole to plant our Christmas tree. He final dug the hole, although it took two weekends to finish it was so hard to do. Well, if you look at the “soil” here, you’ll know why.




You see the pine tree in the background–that was a Christmas tree from several years ago. It is growing slowly, but it is growing.



This is the week we are supposed to finish the next edition of the Ethnologue–let’s hope it happens.  At the end there is always so much to do to get the details right and make the system work with all its moving parts.

I won’t go into all the details here at the moment, but our son Andrew has been offered a teaching position at at university.  It wasn’t the job offer he was necessarily expecting or hoping for, but he is seriously considering it.  More details on that to come, but prayers for wisdom for him and Laura as they contemplate their future would be appreciated.

We recently finished the Christmas puzzles.  Usually there is a piece missing.  This time there was an extra piece!

    I didn’t know a pine tree would grow here.   In my yard I couldn’t get a hole dug that deep.  So very much rock.  Hope the kids get close to home.
