This afternoon for lunch Dmitry and I went to the “Russia restaurant” in Arlington to meet Laura, Dan, and Zhenya. Oh, and Lucas! Mustn’t forget Lucas.
Okay, color me impressed. Not content with being the subject of not one, but two, feature stories in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, their story is going to be in either the March or April issue of Good Housekeeping!
Isn’t it odd? To me they’re just, well, the Waybourns. Our friends. Dmitry’s bestest friends. See ‘em at church. Spend the night. Have lunch occasionally. Email some. That sort of thing.
Never occurred to me they’d be written up in a major, national magazine like Good Housekeeping. (When telling me about it, Laura first urged me to guess which magazine it was, saying it’d be the one I’d least expect, based upon the title. “Planned Parenthood” was my suggestion. )
And tonight Dan is testing to qualify for third-grade brown belt in karate. He’s getting on up there! Do NOT mess with Dan. ;^) Zhenya’s testing for his green belt, and Joe finally succumbed and began taking karate, and will be trying for his orange. I ought to go watch and cheer ‘em on, but being a lazy cuss, I undoubtedly won’t. Bad Auntie Anne.
