We're Here!

Anna and I are here in Oregon! We just finished enjoying smores out on the deck and reading Chapters six and seven in Isaiah. The three little boys are so sweet, and the oldest really likes being with Anna.  :)

The plane ride was nice, but a bit tiring. We flew from New Orleans to Salt Lake City, and from there flew to Portland. By the time we got to their house it was, I think, around one or two in the morning their time.

We're staying busy and having a wonderful time!

Little Amys

A few years ago, our family was so blessed to have a stay- at- home daughter come and baby-sit for us. Amy and her sister Anna even stayed with us while our parents were away for Lydia's  surgeries.  She was such a wonderful example of a godly woman for us, and we're so thankful to her, and her family.

     Now, Anna and I have the opportunity to go be "little Amys" for some friends in Oregon! They have three little boys (the oldest is four), and one more coming soon. The mother had to have a C-section for all of her children, but she's hoping that won't be necessary this time, so please pray for her. This is a big deal for us, because we've never been away from home for so long (we'll be back in December). Hopefully Anna and I won't get to home sick. :)  We'll be leaving in just a few days, and we're so excited!

  I'm not sure if I'll be able to blog or not, but I think I'm taking my laptop, so maybe. :)

In Christ,

The Old Fashioned Picnic

playing badminton
At the beginning of this month, Daddy and I went  to Georgia for an old fashioned picnic hosted by Mia and her family.  I enjoy reading her blog Aspiring Homemaker, and we had a lovely time.

a cute little fellow!
We had to get up SUPER early to be there on time, but it was completely worth it.  The drive was enjoyable, mostly because I got to spend time with Daddy. :)

Back home, the other children had a picnic too!

Until next time (which shouldn't be as long; I apoligize for the lack of posting)!
