We're the proud owners of....

.... A receipt that says that someday we'll have new furniture! We spent our weekend shopping all over Houston and finally ended up with (eventually, I hope) a new kitchen table set and new living room furniture.

In the meantime, here are pictures of the dining room and guest bedroom. I still need to paint a wash in the art niche of the dining room, but I can't get to that until later this week. I do think this is my favorite room that I've ever painted -- well, this or the flip flop room in McKinney.

Mom went to Lubbock again today, thinking they were going to start radiation. But apparently, the new radiation place she went to requires a different mask than the one that was made last week. So they made that today, and she has her first appt. tomorrow at 1:30. Milton seems to think she's stronger today.

Abbie & Kait start swim lessons tomorrow.

We "tried out" another new church this week. We went to West Houston C of C, which is pretty close to our house. Our friends the Venettes go there, and we were happy to see a ton of people we know there, as well -- Darren & Karen Croom (from A&M), Troy & Tiffany Blackmon (A&M and Bammel connection) and some others. Seeing Amy (Fortenberry) Lippencott was a HUGE surprise -- we had no idea she and Spencer were in Houston. It was great to see her again.

But it's going to be really hard to find another place like The Branch. If you're lucky enough to be a part of that family, you should say a prayer of thanks every day -- we miss it (and you) all so much!

Ya'll have a great week!
