Friday's Fave Five - 7/19/13

Link to Friday's Fave Five host blog.

1. We found our daughter housing for this fall!!  And it's a great situation because we know the people who are renting the house.  Many things fell into place - especially that the girls only have to rent until May, not get a year lease.  It's convenient to their student teaching locations also.

2. Mike made it through six nights of work, which is a huge stretch to work 12-hour shifts.  

3. Our son had a great service at church the other night, including both singing and speaking.  We were proud of him as he laid out what he is doing in the Far East for the coming year/two years.

4. I was able to go to a weekly lunch/meeting of three older people who are being a huge support to Andrew, spiritually, emotionally, physically, and monetarily.

5. I have completed a lot of projects this summer, the kinds of things I like to do when there is no school pressure.  Also completed a missions report for church, and have ordered a ton of books for the library.  They come in about four or five a day.  The mail lady wonders what is going on.  :-)

My boyfriend works 12 hour shifts also. He switches between days and nights as well. 6 12 nights is a LOT! That man is going to need some down time this weekend that's for sure.

Love those summer things we teachers get to do when there are no classes. Where is your son serving? So great to see our kids minister.

Hope you have a great week ahead.

That is a lot of long shifts! Hopefully he can have some really good restful time before he has to go back to work.

Yay for finding housing! That is always a load of the mind of a mom with students away from home.

Sounds like exciting times for your son.

It is awesome when we see God answering prayers in a specific manner like with renting the house only until May.

Hopefully your husband won't have to work that killer schedule this week.

Getting lots of projects done = priceless. It is nice to survey the house and see order and beauty. Congrats on being so productive.

Glad the housing situation is solved and worked out so well!

Wow, 6 12-hour days is a lot. Hope he doesn't have to do that too often.

Andrew's opportunities sound exciting.

It feels so get to get projects done.

Those are long shifts to work. I hope he has some days off now.
Books? Did you say you ordered books? Yay! Do share!
Great news for Andrew and for your daughter's housing.
