Enjoy a few shots from our time Stateside so far. Two months down, only three to go. Unfortunately, time flies when you’re loving it!
We were able to coordinate ONE evening where all 33 people in Dan’s “little” immediate family were together. We were sure to snap a quick picture to document it! (2 Grandparents, 10 siblings/spouses, 21 grandchildren + 1 more due in October)
Our boys enrolled in swimming lessons for two weeks in August and boy, have they have come in handy since then!
Lots of visiting - Extended family, church family, supporters, friends. One benefit of living in transition: our kids love people, quickly. You wouldn’t believe the number of hugs they insisted on giving Great-great Uncle Joe and Aunt Jo, having only met them an hour earlier!Sailing on Lake Erie? Check.
A chance to pick up an RVA grad at the airport and deliver her to college? Absolutely! We jumped at the chance to walk Grace through her first steps on U.S. soil. She ordered food at a drive-thru and went shopping for college basics at Wal-mart, all for the first time.
A long weekend with Oma and Buddy in Altoona gave us the opportunity to visit with Nana, as well as go out for icecream in our PJs, go bowling with buddy, and spend a whole day at DelGrosso’s amusement park.
September marked the beginning of our stay in Western Pennsylvania and the start of homeschooling for the boys. We are thankful for this time spent together as a family of five.
More pictures to come – THANK YOU to so many who have made our time here memorable and comfortable. God has used you to bless our little world-traveling crew and we are couldn’t be more thankful!
