Here are some photos of our time in Pennsylvania with my parents and Gram. Lots of good memories, as you can see!

Here are a few photos of our time with Curtis & Anita and their family. It was so wonderful to be able to spend a few days with them at their home in Maine!

We had a great beginning to our trip! Monday we enjoyed Dad's wonderful German pancakes before packing up and heading south. It was fun to spend the morning together. Then we picked up a slurpee on our way and started driving.

We stayed on smaller roads for quite some time because there wasn't a good way across the Red River. This was a blessing because it meant we got to stop at a lovely park in North Dakota.

We drove through the night and arrived at Patrick and Mary's late in the afternoon on Tuesday. They are lovely hosts and we enjoyed our time with them. The boys got a big bag of wonderful, appropriate gifts that they'll enjoy for the rest of the trip and when we get home! Mary had arranged a coffee with some of the ladies from church and it was neat to meet some new people and see some friends we'd made before.

Now we're at my parents' house in Pennyslvania. My dad is still trying to recover from a bug, and likely pneumonia, that he picked up somewhere. However, it's great to see my parents, my gram, and other friends in the area.

We're looking forward to spending time with friends from Puzzletown Road Bible Church as well!

Wow, another Monday! This morning I've been working on getting a bit organized for our trip next week. We are looking forward to seeing quite a few of you! A few loads of laundry and some time in the office have filled up the morning quite nicely.

Kaleb and his friends set up quite an elaborate train track the other evening.

Kevin is at Garry's parents helping trim some bushes and Kaleb is busy with paper airplanes... more and more and more of them! We will be trying to do a bit more school this week, but today it's nice to do some other things. Garry is packing up his pilot helmet to ship away to be refurbished-- it's amazing what the tropics can do to leather in a relatively short time!

Here are Kevin and some of his friends with parts of their amazing knife and gun collections.

Saturday evening we enjoyed a prayer and worship service at our church. We loved getting together with a smaller group to worship God and spend time in prayer. We were blessed and encouraged by our brothers and sisters.
