Subject: Tex-Mex Challenge

We are faced with having to say farewell to Faith. She is leaving to begin her full time pursuit of a nursing degree. Classes start on the 29th. Paula is escorting Faith to Texas on Friday, to get her setup for college, and spend time with Hannah and John. The Colbath Dorm will be at capacity this semester as Hannah, Faith and John share the apartment. We are going to miss the heck out of Faith, just as we also miss Hannah and John.

So I am left with nine hungry kiddos for three weeks. You know me, I always need some kind of project or goal when Paula has to leave for more than a day. So my inspiration, as always, is food. The kids and I are going to be subject to a solid week of Tex-Mex dinners. That greatly simplifies shopping as the Tex-Mex cuisine is pretty the same ingredients, assembled in various ways.

Normally I worry when I travel and leave Paula behind. We both worry that some armed bandits are going to think Paula is helpless and try to break in while I am away. Needless to say I do not worry about that when Paula is gone, as I don't sleep much anyway, even less when she is absent. So, I am awake enough to know what's going on outside, and sleep deprived enough to shoot first and bury bodies later.

Please pray for us as it is difficult to be separated from our children by several international borders.
