While at Camp Patmos, we walked down to see how they did the bird count on the island. The gentleman who banded the birds was super friendly and answered many questions from all of us. He taught us how to identify birds and how to tell if the bird was a yearling. After teaching visitors how to properly hold a bird, we released the birds that they had banded. We went back a few times and enjoyed the chance to see many different birds.
Our families still love getting together. The last week plus we spent some time with the Sellers at Camp Patmos. Everyone kept busy helping with the weekend retreats, but we still had time to catch up.
My favorite part was having time to talk with Kristi face to face!
Megan is growing up so fast! She works hard to learn her Bible verses and at math. She is learning how to bake (she is “famous” for her special peanut butter cookies).
Designing Lego buildings with Adrian is a favorite activities. She loves to experiment. Her favorite so far this year has been taking a cutting of some African violets and learning how to grow new plants. She has a lovely pot of violets that she hopes grows flowers soon.
Happy birthday Megan. I love you very much!
Happy birthday to Andrea!
Andrea has been a joy to watch grow up. She is a lovely young woman who is not afraid to work hard or get dirty. She works hard at school. She loves to help others. (She is a much better cook than I will ever be!)
I am looking forward to what God has planned for her.
