On my to-do list - start packing. We are laid out to close on the house by September 4th, hopefully sooner. I know I've asked for a lot of prayers from you guys lately, but if you could just keep it up a little bit longer....we'd really appreciate it! ;o)

We had some friends in town over the last weekend. Chris and Shirin came to visit us from Switzerland. Chris stayed with the Elliotts as an exchange student when Zac was in high school. He comes back to visit every few years and the last two visits he's brought his girlfriend Shirin with him. We love them both and they're just like family - Shirin fits right in, too. Abby had a lot of fun with Shirin (who was wonderful with her!) but her true love is Chris. It was HILARIOUS to see her with him. Her little eyes just sparkled and the last night they were here she was just all over him. Hilarious - although I had to tell her that boys have cooties and she needs to stay far, FAR away!! :o)

Anyone else notice the strange resemblance between Daddy and Shel Silverstein?

lol - Zac DOES look like Shel! That is too funny.
I'm so excited for you that you are closing relatively quickly on the house. Do you plan on staying in an apt for awhile or did Zac did the job in Texas? Oooh, I am so curious! :)
