One of our favorite things to do while we're in Hattiesburg is to go to our friends the Hartmans. They used to be our neighbors when we lived there. We used to go to their house all the time for dinner, me and Mrs. Hartman would go for walks in the morning after I dropped Beth and Josh at school, and their dog Honey came to visit us all the time at our house! We love to plan a night with them and she always cooks us dinner. Our favorite is fried catfish! She makes the best. Then, we always play a game of Oh-Shaw with the whole family, then end up with a Rook tournament. We had a great time as usual! (As a side note....this is the third time in a row the women have won the Rook tournament! We are so good! Patrick and Bro. Hartman are VERY competitive, so they can't stand this.) We're looking forward to staying with them for a couple of days in February when we'll be at a Missions Conference. This is Beth's friend Rachel Padgett. They were in K-4 together. I can't believe they're now in 5th grade! They like to write to each other and call each other from time to time. I'm so glad they've kept in touch. We had a great time while in Hattiesburg, but as usual, it went way too fast.
