To the Beach!

We are going to the beach tomorrow! We can't wait. The kids have been counting down the days all week long. I have to do all the chores today though, so I better get started! Hope you all have a relaxing holiday weekend.

First Day of School!

I took pictures this morning and then after they headed off to school with Dad I noticed the card wasn't in the camera. So, these are after school pics and the glare was bright. I'll take more pictures on Monday. They wear khaki on Fridays anyway. They had a great day!

Phone calls

The phone rang last night and I looked on the read out screen to see who it was. It was one of the ones where you can't tell and I went ahead and answered it. The foreign sounding voice asked if I was Mrs. Briggs. If you are like me and you hear an accented voice asking for Mrs. Briggs would you assume it was a telemarketer? I did and I did not pay any attention to what they were saying as I was preparing in my head to tell them I was not interested and hang up. Then I heard the voice saying "and I'm going to be Joseph's teacher next year!" What? What? I said...could you tell me your name again?!! Joseph's teacher is Mrs. Leonard and she's from South Africa. I had hoped he would get her, but I had no idea she was from SA. Whew! Close call!

Pictures of the new house

Mom said one of my Aunts (you know who you are!) wanted to see pictures of our house other than the garage! Well, we are slowly coming together, but there are still plenty of bare walls. These are a few pictures that I already had downloaded. Feast your eyes!

We received our yearly update on Julie. We have sponsored her through Christian Children's Fund for the past 4 years. It is a heart warming experience for us. She's 6 years old, her favorite color is red, she likes art and she walks to school. She lives with her mother, father and sister in Brazil. We write to them from time to time and they write to us as well. She really blossomed this past year. We hope she will be our sponsor child for many years and maybe someday we will do a visit trip to Brazil and meet her and her family.

Most of this has been cleared out and the rest will be finished this weekend. I will post a picture of two cars in the garage ASAP!


Brendon sent me these on my birthday. Aren't they beautiful!

We are plugged in again!!!

We moved to our new home two weeks ago. Considering all things it was a smooth move as far as moves go. However, my computer connection was not up until this morning. I have felt so disconnected! Now, I will get back to regular posting here.
We have pretty much unpacked and will get finished this weekend.
