"Congratulations, you passed!"

I was delighted to read those words on the piece of paper one of my teachers handed me this afternoon!!! ("Thank you Lord!!!!!!!!") I'm so glad that's done with. :) Thank you for your prayers and well wishes! They helped I'm sure!

To celebrate, I went to the store and bought----yes, ice cream and root beer for floats---our usual big-celebration treat. :) I also got paid today; Andrew finished his first grain cleaning job with his new cleaner; and Jacob stacked up bales by himself for the hay hauler to bring in later, so we actually had many things to celebrate!

(Below: I'm toting the piece of paper that says that I passed my test and, in the other hand, I have our celebration supplies, fresh from--the grocery store. )
Hip hip hooray! What a great day.

YEAH! Me likes to hear things like that. :) Hope you REALLY enjoyed that root beer float - You deserved it!

My brother is doing fabulously. Due to a little bit of nerve damage, he has no (or very little) sense of smell or taste. They did a CT scan a week later and found that his brain was, indeed, bleeding. They assigned him a week's bed rest after that. Well, my brother was off to work at the car repair shop two days later. His boss would only let him answer the phones, but my brother was SO happy to be back at work.

The young man who did the deed called every single night to check on him, and finally a few days ago, my brother was able to talk to him. Apparently the young man was expecting Michael to say things like, "I'll never forgive you, you terrible person! I will hate you for the rest of my life!" What a shock when my brother talked to the young man about God's forgiveness and that there were no hard feelings whatsoever.

That blessed me as well as blessing the young man. :)

So that has been an adventure. I'm also getting used to being a milk-maid and goat mama! I had two sets of twins born a week and a half ago!
