So this week has been a fun week for us. We sent off cards, made phone calls and told our church. We are expecting our first child in the middle of August 2007. This is a very exciting time for us.
Rachel is excited because her kids won't be the only kids screaming and having a good time when we get together for family events with the Olson's! My family is excited because they get to have their first grandchild, niece/nephew. So we are excited about this fun news and this new adjustment!
The way John announced to our news to the church was. "Well I have one more announcement that I forgot to announce. We will be converting one of our rooms in the parsonage into a nursery." The gasps and claps that were to follow were priceless. :-) Then as people came up to me to tell me congratulations, some said that they didn't quite get the announcement. They couldn't understand why we were going to move the nursery to the parsonage. Also a lot of people (kids) didn't know what a nursery was so lots of kids turned to their parents asking questions! :-)
