My love affair with the FP

I just can’t say enough good things about First Plymouth.  The last few days, it became really apparent to me what a large role that church has played in my Lincoln life.  Friday night was the church school kick-off.  After the hotdogs, everyone went outside to eat their Dairy Store ice cream and listen to a fiddle band play.  It was so wonderful.  I told Erin that I wish I had my own personal fiddle band that would play for me every evening while I drank iced tea and gabbed with my pals.

Saturday we were back at church to play at Dimensions Preschool’s Nature Classroom.  I am so sad that Thomsen won’t be able to go to preschool here.  He had such a good time playing the wooden xylophones, walking through their garden, and stacking bricks.  Here we saw our dear friends, the Sandhorsts.  They were here for a week visit from their home in Decorah, Iowa.  Rachel and her family left us in June after spending a year in Lincoln while her husband was on sabbatical.  Rachel is the one who lead the Healthy Children, Healthy Planet class I took this spring.  She and her family are a huge inspiration for me.  I am excited to visit their Iowa acreage one of these days.  I imagine it to be very similar to my beloved Barbara Kingsolver’s.  This morning I said good-bye to Rachel and won’t see her again until Christmas. 😦  Thankfully, I have my Erin for a few more weeks.
