Last weekend we enjoyed coffee or a meal with several different people. Several people shared how they have been on a short-term work trip overseas and how it has impacted them. While we've been busy talking the boys have been honing their pool skills.
We finally had a new family picture taken the other day, so thought I'd post it here. Kevin has already passed me up in height and is working on catching up to Garry.
We are finally seeing things come together for our trip out east. We plan to leave Manitoba around May 10th and be gone for a couple of weeks. We are excited to see quite a few people and sad that we can't see everybody. This furlough has been so different than other times we've been home.... the age of our boys, our responsibilities that continue for the Philippines, and many other "little" things have made it impossible to travel as much as we have in the past. Yet in being more "local" here we are enjoying other wonderful benefits. It is just incredible to see God unfolding His plans for this time in North America!
This week Garry is back to working in the city some days. He's hoping to finish up the engine on the Bonanza in the next few days...though he may still be waiting for one part. The bathroom he's doing for his sister is actually looking like a bathroom also.
Yesterday the boys enjoyed some time with a cousin, climbing among their hay bales among other things. While Kevin had been there before this was Kaleb's first experience among the bales. He thought it was pretty amazing how high they'd climbed-- and pretty spooky to get back down!
