That's right, fall has arrived in Sherbrooke! It's pretty crisp in the mornings, and they say it will just get colder and colder. The leaves are changing and that wonderful smell of fireplaces and hot chocolate is floating in the air.
School has kept us plenty busy, especially with all the activities outside of the classroom. It's fun to practice what we learn with our neighbors and the checkout people at the grocery store. We're still very limited in our communication, but already we've come a long way. We can pick up bits and pieces of the sermon on Sunday mornings, and those familiar hymns and praise songs we know so well in English are helping to build our biblical vocabulary. French is a lot of hard work, but we're slowly making progress, and it's always a good feeling when you can not only understand someone's question, but also respond to it!
Well, Joy is 4 days past her due date, and still no little girl. Looks like she's taking her sweet time! Just for kicks, we watched Father of the Bride Part II last night...but it doesn't really happen like that (or so I'm told). Everything else is ready for her arrival, we're just waiting and walking and waiting some more, and then walking and waiting, until it's time. I have to admit, even I'm getting a little anxious to see her now. But alas, I guess we'll just have to be patient and wait...and walk some more. If nothing has happened by the end of this week, mother nature will probably get a little nudge from the doctor to help things along. Pray that she will come on her own! Either way, sometime this week we should have a little girl in our arms--kind of an interesting feeling! Hopefully it won't be another month before I get to post something!
