Today is a windy day in Tucson, I don’t care who you are or where you’re from! Makes us feel right at home. Ordinarily the forecasters start to get excited when the wind gets to 10 or 15 mph, which we’d call a nice breeze, but the wind has been consistently higher than that since yesterday. Not too much dirt blowing right where we are, but there is probably more away from town.
We went to Tumacacori and Tubac again yesterday, this time with our pastor and his family. It was so much fun being with a two-year-old for the day!
It was hard to tell which he enjoyed more, riding in his new wagon or pulling it himself! That’s Adam, the bearded one, and Allie Kemper, Nathan’s parents, talking to LeRoy.
LeRoy tried to get Nathan to take him for a ride, but no deal. My major accomplishment of the day was getting Nathan to say my name. This morning, his mom brought him around the corner of the church toward our bus and he came this way saying “Anne! Anne! Anne!” It made my heart smile!
Last night was GJ’s Coffeehouse at Northwest Community Friends Church and we attended to hear two local bands offer praise to the Lord in song. It’s a good outreach of our church and gives the youth a chance to learn a good work ethic by setting up, tearing down, manning the admission table and trying their barista skills in the kitchen. After the evening’s entertainment is done, they set up the sanctuary for Sunday services. We commend their leaders for a job well done!
This week, in celebration of Pi day (3-14), we are heading out on a road trip in the car to the Pie-o-neer restaurant in Pie Town, NM. Since they are on the continental divide, they close for the winter and that is the day they choose to re-open. We’ve tested their wonderful assortment of pies before so our mouths are watering already!
