First of all, let me apologize for the large pictures. I was uploading them from my phone.
The days are running together now. Wednesday is always a long day. This Wednesday started with an hour of dropping kids off. I never imagined it would take me that long! But there is so much to do. And I am so thankful all of our friends who are helping with the kids. And the food! We have no lack. Thank you all.
At the end of Wednesday, our preschool minister took Ellie and Kate home with her. They put Ellie’s hair in pig tails:
When they got home, her husband told Ellie that they don’t run in the house. She said, “seriously?”
Thursday, one of our college student friends kept the kids at home. They baked cupcakes!
That night, Kate prayed that Sonya would get home safely and that I would be able to drink coffee. What a sweetie.
Friday is my day off so it’s the day to get things done. Like getting Brotey fitted for his tux in an upcoming wedding and shopping. He was really into it.
That night we had creative quesadilla night. We put the left over ingredients from the pizza night into quesadillas. They were pretty good.
Victoria really pushed the envelope by making pasta and creating a cheesy pasta taco. She hopes to have a cooking show someday called “Better Than Yuck.”
Then we watched movies in the basement and camped out down there.
This morning I made chocolate chip pancakes.
Everyone except Kate thought they were great. I’m just glad that I didn’t burn any.
I put peanut butter, syrup, and chocolate syrup on mine.
Then, Ellie did her own makeup.
Everyone is doing well, but we really miss Sonya. We’ve heard from her several times. They start the children’s camp tomorrow. So, please pray for strength, stamina, and health for the team. They’ve already met some of the kids and built some relationships. It is going to be a great week. Pray for God to move in the lives of many. The fields are white for the harvest.
