The Surprise At Church

Bethany's first Sunday at church!
The newly-expanded family all together at church.
Introducing Bethany.
Mr. R was testing out the internet connection to make sure they're ready for live stream! Yes, our friends, the R. family, are going to take care of setting up a computer to watch the live stream for our dear friends to be able to watch the wedding at the nursing home!
Fun with Abby after church (and yes, you see Dad wearing a coat--the temperatures dropped into the 30's last night).

The official countdown is now here, with only three days left until we leave–either Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning! We’re excited! We would be grateful for your prayers as we plow through much that has to be accomplished.

Our first stop is Dixon, Illinois, for a conference Thursday. It’s about 2 hours from Chicago (west).

Sarah for the rest

“How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings” (Psalms 36:7).


Wearing GiGi’s hat is so much fun!
Doing sidewalk chalk with Aunt Anna.

I thought we’d share these pictures I took several months ago, and I still think Abby’s just as cute. But, what can you say? An aunt is an aunt.


“… Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God” (Mark 10:14).
