Tara sharing about her blooming relationship with a fine young man...

Life continues to be full of the joys, challenges, and hilarious moments of living with a sister who is engaged to be married.
The joys: staying up late into the night talking wedding plans and Nathan news. (Oh yes, and having a perfect reason for teasing her all the time is quite fun too!)
The challenges: coming to grips with the fact that for all practical purposes, Katelin thinks my laptop is her special friend. :-) Yup...despite the fact that she is in the throes of planning a major wedding and figuring out how to move across the world, she is also very much in love! And that means lots of Skype calls with a certain someone as well as numerous emails a day! It's a good thing I learned how to share in kindergarten...because I'm getting lots of practice doing so with my computer. :)
The hilarious moments: let's see...where do I start? I suppose I could tell you about the time that Katelin walked out of the house with her hairbrush in hand instead of her cell phone. Or maybe I should mention the time she locked herself into the house while home alone, leaving her house keys dangling in the keyhold outside? Then there was the time she put a pitcher full of iced tea into the cabinet instead of the fridge. Oh! And by the way, all three of these occurrences happened on the same day! I think you would have to agree with me that her mind was probably somewhere else. =)
A girl in love sure provides laughter for the household! (Don't worry - she was laughing too!)
As far as the Nathan side of the update, he's back in Ukraine involved in their missionary organization's annual summer outreach program: Carpathian Mountain Outreach. To learn more about what they do, and to see pictures of their experiences, go to: http://www.euroteamoutreach.org/
In closing, here's a little snippet of a recent video chat via Skype that Kate 'n Nate enjoyed (and that they were kind enough to allow the publication of). Hope it makes you smile!
K: "Have you eaten supper yet?"
N: "No, not yet. And I didn't each much breakfast or lunch today either!"
K: (exasperated) "What am I going to do with you?"
N: (with his cheesy grin and raised eyebrows...) "Cook for me??"
K: (sighing) "You need a wife!"
N: "I'm workin' on it!!"
