This weekend was a bit different to the norm (whatever that is). Dean left at 4ish on friday afternoon to get to Swellendam for the Double Century 205k race on Saturday morning. Click here to see how he did. Meanwhile Paula was entertaining the boys at home. They had a great time visiting a friend and chasing the ducks before chilling out at home with a borrowed DVD - The Emporer's New Groove. Joel took his responsibilities as 'man of the house' very seriously!!
Dean returned home exhausted but happy at around 6pm just in time for a shower and for Paula to fetch the baby-sitter for her surprise Birthday treat. Dean had managed to keep this one very quiet! We went to see Lionel Ritchie perform in Cape Town, his first ever gig in the country and he was superb! Paula is now officially Diana Ross as she (and every other lady) dueted with Lionel on his classic hit Endless Love.
Sunday was another great time in church. The morning started disastrously with the transport for the equipment falling through followed by some missed phone calls and a bit more disappointment at being let down. However, God is gracious and most of the congregation seemed unaware of the trials the leadership were experiencing. Consequently, there was the usual sense of expectation and as ever, God didn't disappoint!
