Visit From Katie

Well, I have finally caught up on things around the house enough to sit down and catch my readers up on life as it has happened.

Katie was here for two weeks and we tried to theme some of our activities around Titus 2:4-5:

That they (the older women) may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discrete, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

love their husbands…

We straightened the house and made a yummy candlelight dinner for Brian. While we were working we discussed things we admired about Brian and Dad.

…love their children…

Katie did a wonderful job taking care of Lance – even jumping up to volunteer if I mentioned changing his diaper. Lance got sick one day, crying and running a fever. He wouldn’t nurse but did take a bottle. Katie and I took turns holding the hot, miserable little guy for over six hours.  Such work can be exhausting. :-)

We also checked out books at the library for Lance and his summer reading program.

…keepers at home…

Baking day made for a busy morning as we turned out bread, rolls, buns, pizza crust and muffins.

As a special treat, we made calzones and took them to Brian’s work for a lunch date.

…obedient to their own husbands…

Katie was very good about entertaining herself and Lance whenever I had a project from Brian or needed to edit his papers for school. She was also excellent about remembering to water the plants.


We helped out at a Bible club at an apartment complex near our church. Katie and I ran games and she helped out with snow cones on the last day while I supervised the bounce house. Here Brian is playing “wink” with some of the kids.

We also put together a meal and took it to a friend that just had a baby – funny thing was, except for being more filled out, Lance was smaller (in length) than the week old baby!

All in all, I enjoyed having Katie here and I hope we can do it again!
