Elijah found a new hobby today. I think he's got some rhythm!

Ok, so I just spent way too long trying to figure out how to attach witty captions to each of these pictures. But, alas, I can't get the words to line up with the appropriate pictures (I think blogger could use some help being more non-html-user.)

Anyway, in a nutshell, we went to the zoo yesterday with some friends. It was a lot of fun. There were six adults and five kids 2.5 and younger (Elijah was the oldest). So, it was slow going. One throw up, two soaked jeans, four nursings, two bottles, a few tantrums, and six hours later, we managed to see the whole park.

The coolest thing about Binder Park is that you can hand feed the giraffes! Elijah got a kick out of that, but I couldn't manage a picture of him in the act. I am puzzled by why all the zebras were brown and white, and not black and white. Oh, and I'm very interested in your caption ideas on the self portrait of Elijah and I that I took today. I laughed out loud when I saw how it turned out.

So, if you haven't already surfed away from my blog due to my wordiness, scroll down and enjoy the pics :-)

Well, as most of you probably know, God has our family in a very interesting place. We are learning so much about dependence and waiting on His timing. Our hearts grow more and more excited about the prospect of moving to the Canary Islands to do church planting. It's crazy that only 1/4 of 1% of the people know Christ. I know there are so many doors yet to be opened and walked through, so we covet all of your prayers as we go on this journey. Please pray that we would be living out 1 Corinthians 9:23, and that we could truly say, "I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it."

This has been my memory verse this week, as I was feeling discouraged that I haven't had many opportunities to share my faith lately. I spend my days with the boys, and don't get much adult interaction. As an answer to prayer, Monday I was able to walk through the gospel with a young couple at the park while Elijah played with their son. Please pray that Nick and Hillary would come to church this Sunday.

I'll try to keep this blog updated with our progress in going overseas. We are still in the paperwork stage of applying with TEAM, and we're excited to be going to Tenerife this summer to check things out.

On the home front, here are some pictures of the boys from the last couple of days. I've half-heartedly begun potty training Elijah... we'll see how that goes. Levi has been rolling around and getting his knees under himself in an effort to scoot around.
