Home Assignment {so far} in Photos

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! 

Family photos July 26th 130We 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!

DSC_0002Lots 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!

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!
