history buff

Recently, LE's history class studied about the Trail of Tears at Co-op.  Her teacher invited her to do the demonstration that her and Paw-Paw do at pioneer days for the class.  She prepared a craft which was Native American writings on butcher paper to look like buffalo skins and taught her peers about Native American life.  She has decided that presenting history is something she wants to do as she gets older.

Kenya had to be postponed

Ben and I were advised to not travel to Kenya at this time because of the recent attacks on Christians in Garissa.  We prayed for a week and even considered travelling with our church later this year to Kenya.  We have decided it is not our time and sent the pastor money to purchase sixty Bibles in the area language.  We are still waiting, and praying for our funds to be returned from the airlines.  We purchased travelers' insurance but had to file a claim to see if our cancellation was covered by the insurance.
We are still processing everything and learning to trust without borders in His will and not what we thought the plan was.

pledge helper

Read volunteered to lead all of the kids at co-op in our morning pledge.  Big step for this sometimes shy guy.

new buddies

These are the girls' newest sewing creations.  Boo's began last week when we were in the front yard drawing with chalk.  She created Polker on the driveway, that led to creative writing this week in school.  She has begun writing a chapter book of the adventures of Polker and Bella.  He is a friendly alien, whenever he becomes angry he growls.  When he is happy, he is slimy and the slime tastes good on pancakes.
LE's creation is Nebbet.

Easter 2015

This year at our Easter celebration, we also celebrated Grandma's 80th birthday, my Dad's mom.  We had our yearly tradition of cascaranas, grown-up Easter eggs hunts, and great food.  Everyone made it in honor of Grandma's birthday, with the exception of two cousins.
