Visitors from the Wintery North

In February we were able to have a few guests. Matt's professor and mentor Jim from the ICS in Toronto and his wife Arvilla came down to escape the cold for 4 days. It was so much fun having them here! We were able to get a babysiter one night and go for dinner. That was wonderful. Jim spoke in Matt's phylosophy class too which was the highlight of their visit for Matt. He couldn't stop grinning.

Then the very next week Matt's parents and his brother Peter came for a visit. Matt's mom was able to come to Miami for a work conference and the boys went scuba diving and snorkeling. Matt even took a couple of days off of work to go down to Miami with them and get in on the action. They chartered a boat and went out to several dives. While Matt's dad and Pete were under water Matt floated around on top looking at the fish below him. They were in the Keys by the way. Matt called me Thursday night pretty freaked out because when he had been snorkeling that day he looked up and saw a shadow in the water about 50-70 feet away from him. He said within 2 seconds an 8 foot reef shark went swimming underneath him! He said he hasn't been that terrified since he went skydiving before we got married! I was just glad that he was safe. Anyway they all came back to our house that Friday and stayed with us until Wednesday. We had sooooo much fun and Micah really warmed up to them fast. He kept getting Pete and Matt confused though which was very funny.
