We have some amazing mentors in Houston, David and Beth Reid. David is from Scotland and Beth is from California. They sound cool already, huh? They met when Beth went on a mission trip to Scotland... even cooler!
About a month ago, we offered to keep their 15 year old son, Chris, so Beth could go on a business trip with David to London. How fun!
Chris has been staying with us since last week. He has been such a joy and we have really enjoy him being here. Joe and I have had many laughs about what is going to be like having teenagers. Good times, good times.
Their family has all these fun terms for everything, what I call their Reidisms. For example, every highway you have to say "the" in front of it. "You go north on the forty five." (Imagine that with a Scottish accent). She just texted me and said she was going to a "tea cozy"- what is that? They also have a young man who is living with them temporarily and they call him, their "lodger."
So here is a pic of our temporary "lodger," Chris. We love you!
