Then this afternoon after naps, we popped into our new neighbor's Open House in the building across from ours. This is a crazy and awesome situation: Julie was one of my first American friends when we moved here in 1992. We went to the same school and have stayed in touch ever since. Her husband completed seminary recently and they moved back here and ended up at our church where I ran into her again. Then her hubby got a job at the church and they moved into the same complex we live in! So wonderful to have an old friend nearby!!! And she has three little boys similar ages to my two. Anyhoo, they invited their neighbors over this afternoon and we had a good time getting to know some other people from our complex too.
Right after that, my siblings all came over to swim, have dinner and celebrate Vanessa and Sean's birthdays both of which are in June. And it was great to stay cool in the pool for a bit after today's record highs of 106 degrees here!

|The Cousins' first swim together. They all loved the water!|
