I was able to talk with Juergen for an hour. He couldn't sleep (jet lag). I guess the trip skiing was amazing! He sent me a few pictures. The camera isn't the best, but it gives you an idea of how beautiful it is there. He totally deserved that day. I'm so glad it went well!
I spent too much of our talk griping about the boys and what they have been up to. I guess I just needed to vent. In the end I remembered the times the boys have made me proud. I said we should pray for those times to happen more often. When Philip got home I talked with him about "getting into " other peoples stuff. Like digging into the other kids Christmas socks at 12:30 am. That was a downer talk. But I prayed that he would make me proud. And 20 minutes later I hear hammering. It was Philip building an arena for the tops he got from Santa. The idea was original he said. It works too. I shake my head! That boy really gets to me!
