August flew by! We ended up extending our two weeks in the States by a few days so we could attend my Aunt Joy’s funeral. After our flight back to the DR, we experienced a tropical storm, Freedom inservice, Bible Institute, 2 kiddos’ birthdays, FOUR families moving to the field, a building dedication, and much more. Enjoy these 31 pictures from this past month!
This picture isn’t from August, but we celebrated my Aunt Joy’s life while we were back. Will miss hearing her laugh at family gatherings! First cousins once removed? Second cousins? Who knows – but Cal liked hanging with Olive! The boys absolutely loved driving Grandpa’s tractor “by themselves” How the kids find all the critters, I’ll never know. Noah and his slithering friend. Caleigh takes after the bros – for the most part, no fear! I was helping with a project outdoors when I heard some rustling in the woods – had a wary visitor at the edge of the clearing. Not sure the cat is quite as happy as the girl. 😉 Hugs from Uncle Lyndell at the last bonfire we could squeeze in! I think this was the first time ever the kids experienced sparklers! Early morning flight – headed back yet again! We love our new masks from Marcia! We have a “system” on all flights now – boys on one side, girls on the other! 🙂 Our sweet friends moved to the DR the same day we flew back! A week of inservice and Bible learning to start off the “new year” Another container arrived! Blessings abounding on that shipment! Well, that’s one way to get things up to the 3rd floor! The new apartment building was dedicated! Four families have already moved in as finishing touches are being put on it. Another Freedom sunrise! Karington enjoying a ride around PriceSmart! KFC for lunch! Even though we all traveled together, we had to eat at different tables. Gracie had a birthday! Tropical storm fun The latest pic of the Freedom ground team! First school day of a strange, strange year. Happy 10th birthday! That decade just flew by. New board game! (I’m partial to the original Stratego, but hey.) Cal turned 5! The boys with the birthday girl! Now THAT’s a candle! Sofia bought Caleigh a sweet little gift for her birthday!
September, here we come!
