Jason’s Facebook status read, “It wasn’t even 24 hours since Angie left me with the girls, and I was taking not one, but both girls into the Emerg! I am a terrific dad!”
Two weekends ago, I once again had the privilege of taking our church ladies group to “the big house” in Kitchener for our own little ladies retreat. It was great fun, as usual, but it was extra special for me because two of my very good friends from our time in training at NTMC were able to join us. One of the girls is on staff at our sister school in Missouri. She was able to come as our guest speaker and did a great job of getting us into the Word and opening up to each other. The second friend attended our church when she was in the training so I snuck her in! It was a bittersweet time as I had a fun time with her, but I’m going to miss her as her and her family head off to the Philippines this month! Her whole family actually came down for the weekend, so Jason and the girls were with the rest of her family.
Jason did well managing the whole weekend. He only had to go to ER once! The girls both got eye infections while I was gone, but Jason took it all in stride. They even had supper ready for us when we got home from the retreat!
