Well, as Bobbie's last post alluded to, I was gone for a few weeks in November. It wasn't a trip out of the country this time, but just up north to visit some friends and check with them on how their language learning was going. You may think it's cold here, but they have even colder temperatures than we do - it's the "real" Siberia!
I had a great visit with the folks there and it was a real privilege to be able to tell one couple that they had reached the level of language that they've been aiming for over the past few years. Oh, and they had cute kids to play with, too.
"So, what's been going on with the pine nut facility?" some of you are thinking. Well, maybe not, but I'm going to tell you nevertheless. When you last saw it it didn't have walls on the ends, so I'll start slow and just show you what it looked like when that much was done:
Of course, it's way beyond this now, but more on that in the next week in those posts I promised!
Thanks again for thinking of us, we love you and wish you all a Happy New Year!
