Two Weeks Down...

As I sit here typing in my parent's computer room, I can see five deer out the window in front of me. There is even a small spotted fawn not 30 yards away. It's so relaxing being out in the country! Elijah has enjoyed taking tractor rides with Grandpa, and I even took him on a walk to the house I grew up in. Everything has changed so much in the canyon where I grew up. It makes me feel old!

Nathan has been in Tenerife now for a week and a half, and we've managed to talk on the phone almost every day. It sounds like they are keeping a very busy schedule, but he's told me of several people he's been able to share the gospel with in the last few days. Be praying for David and Juan Carlos in particular. To read updates on the team, click here and then click on Tenerife, Canary Islands.

Tomorrow the boys and I leave for Christ our Hope Bible Church's family camp. Then, on Wednesday, Levi and I are off to meet daddy. I got teary tonight tucking Elijah into bed and thinking about leaving him. I definitely don't recommend traveling so far without a child :-(

Anyway, here are some pictures from the last week.

The results of leaving a 2 year old with a laptop unattended. Yes...those are KEYS laying on the table.

the picture of you with the boys is super cute! You better take lots of pictures of Eli with you to Tenerife. That will be so hard leaving him behind:( I will be praying for you.

Lucky for you I've watched enough VeggieTales to know that the keys start out like this: Q-W-E-R-T-Y.
:-) I'll be praying for you on your great adventure with Levi!
