Still Enjoying Sleepovers

Last weekend I enjoyed some great fellowship and yes, even a sleepover with the ladies pictured above. We're all probably too old for sleepovers...so we like to think of it as a teacher conference. Whatever the excuse, every one of these friends loves the Lord and has been an unexpected blessing to me in my time here!
These two are fellow Midwesterners. They've got good sense and a great sense of humor!
A couple of my new friends are here from other countries; it's been great to make friends from all over. Every one of my friends has a thankful, uncomplaining heart that is so refreshing (and convicting!) to me.
My fellow teacher has been a blessing to me in so many ways-as you can see! Seriously though, besides keeping me laughing, she's a real trooper; very flexible and cheerful even when things get tough. She's also great at not just taking things at face value but processing them.
We ate great food, laughed a lot, played games, and stayed up way too late. Here we're playing a game that's a combo between 20 questions and Guesstures.
Err...not sure about the strange look on my face. Maybe I was trying to picture my friend as a parrot?
We all enjoyed a treat from one of my wonderful siblings-skittles!
I'm so thankful for these girls, and look forward to spending more time with them over the next few months! If we can enjoy a sleepover together, who knows what's next-a tea party?


  1. I thank God for His provision of such special friends where you least expected them. He is so good!

  2. Loved seeing the pictures! Like your scarf also :)
    Nothing better than some girl time, well...maybe there is, but girl time is fun!

  3. So happy for the fellowship and fun the Lord gave you with these ladies!
