Normal life can provide plenty of opportunities to get to know people. Yesterday we went to a birthday party for the three-year-old son of our teammates and there were some new friends from their neighborhood there. Tomorrow, Jessica is having one of our neighbors and a friend of hers over for tea and to meet David. Daniel will turn two on July 5th, so we’re planning a party for him and it looks like it could be pretty big. July 4th may also be an opportunity to have some folks over and show them how American’s use a barbecue grill. Hooray for life.
