We recently had our annual church camp. It was a great time. It’s always fun to spend some extra time with the local Christians.
Here’s the group of kids that were staring at me as I put up our tent.
Hannah and Caleb love Susan, one of our Christian sisters here. She works at our house two days a week. The kids are all very close to her.
Here are the camp attendees. Can you spot the missionaries? (Don’t look for Craig too long. He took the picture.)
Hannah has officially graduated from kindergarten to first grade. We are excited that we’ve completed our first year of home school. Hannah did a great job. It’s amazing how much she’s learned in one school year. On our last day of school, we had a little family celebration. She requested tacos for supper with homemade tortillas.
Hannah is done with kindergarten, and Caleb is the honorary graduate.
Now that school is over, the kids are finding all kinds of fun things to do to pass their time. This is the fort they made on their bed a few days ago.
We’re in furlough preparation mode now. Of course we have the normal packing to do. But we also have to prepare the house to be left with someone else for 3 1/2 months. We have to arrange for bill payments to be made and all the other fun stuff that goes with leaving your home for an extended period of time.
Here is our house that we’ll be leaving. I’m not sure if I’ve put a picture of it on the blog before. We love this place and will miss it.
Since we’ll be in some cold weather on furlough, we decided to get out the long pants we could find. Unfortunately, the kids’ long pants are more like capris now. I guess we need to do a little second hand shopping!
Elizabeth had a great time in the suitcases I was getting out this past week.
The kiddos love their Daddy!
(They love me too!) This was taken on Mother’s Day.
It’s a good thing Hannah is getting big enough to do some different things now. We even have our own family photographer. Craig and I will be celebrating our 11th anniversary in a few days. Time sure flies when you’re having fun.
If we’ll be near you on our furlough, please email us so we can see you! (see our newsletter for dates/places)
