We're in Texas! :)

I can't believe I haven't written in over a month! We had a safe trip from Moscow to Pittsburg - the kiddos did amazingly well so thank you for praying. When my Dad picked us up at the airport he told me the sad news that my Aunt Mary Alice has passed away that morning. She had been in excellent health until 2 months ago when a very aggresive brain tumor was found. I had really hoped to see her one last time so it was a sad trip down to her funeral.

The next two weeks at my parent's house was a wonderful time of enjoying family; especially my brother Matthew's family that lives in Papua New Guinea (missionaries with New Tribes). We had not seen each other in over 4 years so it was quite a wonderful celebration. They now have TWO TEENAGERS!! ::gasp! how did my brother get so old! :):: Their children are amazing and and it was especially fun to see Rachel and Karis together - they are only 18 months apart and were like two peas in a pod. We were laughing when our combined 8 children were together the ages are 15,13,11,9,7,5,3 & 1.. you would have thought we had actually planned it!

Thank you to all who prayed for us as we traveled! It's been very special to be around loved ones.
