Memorial Day.

We all enjoyed a great Memorial Day weekend.  John was excited to actually get Memorial Day off (possibly a first for him).  Sunday we spent with the rest of the Millers and company from Panama.  Elise is enjoying having a playmate for the week-Lucia.  Monday, John and I took Elise mini-golfing.  She loved it and seemed to have the concept down, though she would hit the ball a couple times and then pick it up and put it within inches of the hole.  Then she would hit it in.  She did get a hole in one though!  Today we are off to the zoo (though John had to return to work).  Elise has been asking to go to the zoo for months now, so she is thrilled.  I will post pictures of that trip too.  For now, here is a picture of Lucia and Elise dancing.


I went to visit Emma’s grave yesterday and tried to walk and pray, but it actually felt quite crowded at the cemetery.  Many people were visiting graves of loved ones and leaving flowers.  Thank you all for your continued prayers.  I am doing pretty well, just a bit over-emotional.  I have a couple more pages done in Emma’s photo album and am very happy with the way it is turning out.
