    1. Ah, it’s kinda sad that you guys are not really still living at Crane Lane.

      Looks like an ambitious reading list! Damian just finished This Momentary Marriage and I’m hoping to be able to read it soon. Good call on reading Anne of Avonlea for Jo. Love those books!

      • Thanks, Gabby. We all are sad in many ways that we are not still living on Crane Lane, but we are excited about what God may have for us here and in the future.

        I agree that it’s ambitious. Especially with adding seminary classes to my load, I doubt that I’ll get through them all. Nonetheless, it’s a goal and something on which I can set my aim.
