I have been putting off posting for a few weeks now, mostly b/c i was waiting for a time when I had some hilariously cool thought to share. but who am I kidding- i never have anything like that to say! hehe!
so here is an update on the pate life. no big philosophical thoughts or spiritual challenges- just whats been up with us.
1. homecoming! two weeks ago I celebrated my 8th WKU homecoming. our students at the BCM were not as into this year at all, so it was kind of a let down. also it was Halloween weekend, so that cut alot of people from participating. but my dear pregnant friend amanda came in and it was a delight to hang out with her for a little while! ... also for any WKU alum that havent been to a game this year- the new stadium rocks and is super exciting to be at!
2. trunk or treat! i didnt actually go to this bc of homecoming stuff, but our church in little ol smiths grove had like 300 or more people come to runk or treat. we even had some people come and give candy out of their trunks who dont go to our church! so it wasa good outreach all the way around and a neat way to come in contact with some people we never would have otherwise. The Lord can work in the coolest ways!
3. fleas! we have been invaded by a fleas at the pate household. about three weeks ago we had an exterminator come and fog the house, and we hardcore treated zoey. and yet fleas are still attacking us! so the exterminator is back today, zoey is back at the vet getting treated, and i have never felt so americanized! i have to spend money on the stupidist things.
4. sickness! justin was sick for the last two weeks, i have been sick this week. yuck!! the pates have been whiney and down and stuffy lately. hopefully we are getting over it though.
humm thats enough updates i guess. i have such an exciting life eh?
