...to posting here that is :) Not quite home to Mexico yet, but getting there soon!
I know some of you worry when you don't hear from us...I must spoil you all and post too often :) Around here, no news means I haven't had time to sit at the computer.
We are all super, duper (to borrow a phrase from my children) excited to be "almost" home! Plans and arrangements are being made now and Lord willing, we will be leaving here in 2 weeks!
Daniel has been wrapping up our time here preaching. On the 3rd, we were up in the mountains in a town called Burney, CA where he spoke at one of our supporting churches there. And this past Sunday, we were in Boise, Idaho where Daniel spoke at another church. We had a wonderful time at both places and were so very blessed and refreshed spiritually. How sweet it is to fellowship with such dear brothers and sisters in Christ!
But, as I'm sure you can imagine, packing and unpacking for 14 people each trip is quite a task...it takes up all the free time I didn't know I had! :)
We also went to a retirement home here in town where the children sang for about 45 minutes while Daniel shared the gospel with the residents between songs. Afterwards, they shared some chocolate-chocolate chip cookies with us while we visited together.
Samuel is growing and growing and growing! :) We praise the Lord he's doing so well and the children can't wait to show him their "real" home :)
Oh...and a side note...remember my baby sister Jacquee who had twins shortly after I had Samuel? Well, my next to the baby sister Jessee and her hubby just announced that they are expecting twins as well! I love nieces and nephews! I'm so happy for them!
We celebrated Daniel/Daddy's 36th birthday last week. It was the most beautiful day and we took the children to Shasta Dam where they offer a free tour of the dam and have lots of hands on activities and information for the children.
I hope you all had a blessed Mother's Day. Saturday, on our way up to Idaho, we stopped at a park to eat lunch and let the children run and stretch their legs a bit. Daniel was doing running races with them and I shot a quick video. I played it back when we got back into the van and just had to laugh. Sure it there is a lot of work in being a mommy, but there is just so much fun! The Lord is so good!
