I spent most of my afternoon helping Mother with our annual family-update letter. It's going to get out later than we'd like, but hopefully the old saying, "Better late than never" is true in this case!
We're doing two versions--one that we print out and send to friends that sent us letters, and another that we'll send in an e-mail to other friends and acquaintances we'd like to keep in touch with.
I was working on arranging a LOT of pictures in the computer version of the letter (which gets to be a lot longer than the paper version, as we don't have to pay for postage!) When I was finally finished, our newsletter filled 23 pages!!! Sadly, Andrew says we'll have to cut some things out so that it doesn't take forever for our friends to be able to receive it...
If you would like to be one of the receivers of this picture-full family letter, and if you don't mind that it will take a while to come into your inbox (!), you can let me know at: email@example.com and I'll add you to our list. :)
Looking through all those pictures today helped me to realize once again how we truly have a very wonderful and interesting life here in North Dakota! The Lord is so good to us!!!
