We had a nice party, our first in in this house, actually our first in Michigan! We had about 10 adults and 10 children. The children made a castle out of cardboard and we had games, food and lots of fun. We thought that this would help "heal" Paul's homesickness, but it just was fun while it lasted. It didn't put a dent in it. Don't get me wrong, we had a good time, but we miss the family parties that were had nearly once a month for not much of a reason. Paul hasn't seen his parents in over a year and it is getting to him. Now we had some discouraging news today, we are having troubles being all happy! sorry.
