March 17, Emily turned 18! On Wednesday, the day before her birthday, she made and decorated her cake. After that she went to her sign language lesson and violin lesson, then we brought her friend Natalie back home with us.
Randy and Joy's family and Joanna also came up for supper. We had potato soup, salad, and the cake for dessert.
It was a new, black, violin bow! She was very surprised and thankful!

On the 19th some friends of ours, Richard and Judy Grout, who are missionaries to Russia, came to stay with us for a few days while they were on deputation. One of the evenings, we invited Mary Cruz, a friend and co-worker of Elizabeth's, and our new friends, Brandon and Susan Owensby over for supper.
