How are you doing? We were concerned to hear about you smashing up your knee! How is it feeling by now? It must be a strange experience to have an injury that your family does not know about. We keep writing you letters as if nothing has happened, and all the time, your letter with its explanation is creeping closer and closer to home. When we get it, we gasp. We worry, as though it just happened. But for you, it is already healing.
Isn’t that strange?
We are so glad you were brave in the pain, and we hope you are getting around just fine again. Please be careful!
We’re excited about your dugout canoe and your derby car. Can’t wait to hear how the race goes. Your car looks very streamlined and sleek.
Jenny is listening to me read this letter out loud as I type it. She asked, “How many days till Regan comes home?” and when I said, “Four,” she sccccrreeeeeaaaammmeed. We are sitting on the couch reading Mary Ann Hoberman’s book The Llama Who Had No Pajama, in between my email communications and One Year Bible reading. Jenny really likes the rhymes, and she also likes the Moses stories. Sometimes I read them aloud from Exodus, and paraphrase. She is learning about the Egyptian plagues for the first time, and her eyes get big.
We’re so excited about home visit. We plan to spend lots of time breathing and relaxing here with you. We want hot drinks, games, stories, hugs, sledding, and microwave popcorn. “And kisses, Regan,” says Jenny. So consider yourself warned. “An I’m pickin my boogahs.” Giggle giggle. She’s leaning into the computer screen and saying, “DID YOU HEAR THAT, REGAN?”
Today we are catching up on a bunch of little jobs. The rest of the week, we are spending time with friends and trying to get our work done. Our whole week is leaning toward Friday, and we can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
