We enjoyed being able to go begging for candy with our cousins today. It was even more fun that Nora and Andrea were both piglet. Jonathan wore a Tigger outfit that all of my kids wore trick or treating at some time.
The kids said that it was the most fun begging they have had in a LONG time.
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.
When Allan, Mark and I returned to Indiana after being in Swaziland a few years, Kristi and Dave invited us over for a meal. We enjoyed our talk and our friendship grew.
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.
