update

i am sorry to report that i failed my driving test. it was a big disappointment as i thought i had done a really good job, but he failed me on a couple of what i thought were minor errors. the whole thing seems a bit subjective. anyway, i won't say any more about it b/c i've decided to not be upset about it but take it from the LORD. i've booked another test for 3 august and we'll give it another go. many people here take it 2 or 3 or even 5 times so it shouldn't have been too surprising. in other news, daniel, jenn and children are here for a few days and we're having a great time showing them our life. i'm still amazed that they were able to come and i know it will be difficult to see them go. the children are playing relatively well together, the men are solving the world's theological problems and jenn and i are trying to figure out how/when/where we can get away w/out the kids and husbands for a few hours.

DO not beat yourself up about the driving test! My cousin Helen failed it several times before she finally got her license. They are SUPER picky. It is a socialist thing I am sure. :)

Sorry about the driving test but I'm glad you're not troubled - knowing the Lord allowed you to have a picky tester...loved the arnold's blog and pictures - Maggie looks great in that little green outfit....well, actually she looks great in anything!

Marcia--long live europe and their driving tests! I could tell your "horror" stories of driving tests in France! Thankfully for Tim and Ruth, SC is one of 6 states that France recognizes!! (b/c Michelin headquarters for NA are there!!) They like to fail you b/c they get more $$ out of you. (Change that to a euro sign!) Will be praying for you. So glad you're getting a visit from Arnolds. I didn't realize they were there. Maybe T & R will make it to Wales--except that Ruth starts language school on Monday. Hang in there! Praying for you, DRBixby

So sorry you didn't pass, but I'm glad the Lord is helping you to take it as from His Hand. All He does--even silly things like this--is good! So glad the Arnolds are there! Have fun!!
