Northwest Washington Fair as a family today. Watching the joy in our boys eyes was absolutely priceless.
church for the children in Haiti. He gets excited to give to things like this, but we love it that he is not content with just doing a little bit. We thought it was really sweet that he really considered what it would be like to have no shoes... he got sad thinking about how the kids must have cuts on their feet. To Isaiah, it wasn't good enough to just buy them flip-flops, we had to do something about their wounds too. So he bought two big tubes of ointment & the biggest package of Bandaids that he could find. Oh God, please give us thoughtful hearts like his.
August 24: No photo yet... we had a great photographer snap some family photos for us in Fairhaven.
pastors, family members & co-workers from FamilyLife Canada to an excellent conference for people in Christian ministry called Catalyst. It was such a treat to hear from leaders like Andy Stanley, Craig Groeschel, Mark Driscoll & Judah Smith. We were challenged by so much of what we heard, but the one big take-away that sunk into our missionary hearts was this: "If we want to reach people that no one is reaching, we'll have to do things that no one is doing."
Sid the Science Kid.
local fire department. Besides the delicious cupcakes, they had all sorts of kids games, activities, demonstrations, etc., and the boys especially loved spraying the fire hose.
Lego creations that Isaiah has spent HOURS working on & playing with. Many of the Lego's are Ross' from when he was a little boy. It has been so fun to see Isaiah's imagination come out as he builds these vehicles.
