What we did on Saturday

Today Rob had to run TWENTY MILES as part of his marathon training, and Sarah was babysitting 2 of her very favorite little girls, Anne and Lydia, at our house. The 5 kids, the puppy, and Mom took a walk on the same trail that Dad was training on. We crossed paths at his 10 mile mark and his 12 mile mark. Phantom was so excited and surprised to suddenly see him along the trail!! 20 Miles was HARD and Rob came home, ate a huge plate of spaghetti and meatballs and slept for 2 hours. Then we all (5 kids, puppy, mom, and dad) got ready to head over to our friends house for a Labor Day BBQ, and celebration of Rob's promotion. What a great time we had! A lot of people from Rob's work came to help him celebrate as well as most of our church family. We said a prayer and sang a rousing chorus of "Happy Promotion to You" for Rob. We all had a great time and are very thankful for such great friends over here in Germany! On our walk, little Anne has all 3 of my kids wrapped around her little finger, and she is especially fond of them too. When the boys would run ahead on the walk she would call them back, "Boys!! Boys!!!". Lydia is in the stroller. She was a little warm and didn't have an appetite, but wasn't fussy at all. By the end of the night when we met up with their mom at the BBQ little Lydia had a 105 fever!! Mom took her home and she was better after a good nights sleep. YOU'RE HERE, YOU'RE HERE!! I never thought I'd see you again!!! (,says Phantom)
