This past weekend Steve and Heather came to visit us and then we all went up to Boston to cheer for Heather while she ran the marathon! She has run other ones before but this was going to be a personal challenge for her. She was sponsored by the Hopkinton Covenant Church which invited us to Sunday morning worship, hosted Steve and Heather, their IL friends Ginny and Mike and NPU professor Boaz Johnson the night before the race and prayed for the three runners all day Monday. She ran to raise money for World Vision and we were so pleased to support her and her cause. We went to the 1 mile marker where we saw the front racers and then waited for Heathers group to come by. Steve and Mike tracked the runners on-line by their bib numbers and Eric navigated through the side roads of MA so we could see Heather and Ginny at a couple of different places in the race. They did an awesome job and we were so proud to be able to share this experience with them. We love you Heather!

We hosted Easter at our house this year and although it was a chilly day it was still great to be with friends and family. We had Alexander and Daniel have their egg hunt on the front green this year where we met up with our new neighbor Cayleigh. The kids were very focused on finding their eggs and the parents were very focused on making sure everyone was warm enough. It was a quick trip outside but well worth the chill.
