From the girls

One of our very favorite things about being in PNG is the puppies!  Mommy and Daddy didn’t tell us we would get to have puppies living near us!  One of the guard dogs here on the mission base had puppies before we got here and they live right beside us!  We love to go visit…

Laundry

Laundry is a little different here.  It is definitely more of a process.  We are using what they call a “twin tub” washing machine, which, coincidentally, has 2 tubs.  One tub is for washing and the other is for spinning. To wash, I run water from a hose into the tub on the left and…

Hardest Thing

The hardest thing about moving (so far) has been our kids not being on their normal sleep schedule.  That has made for tired, grumpy, whiny, kids!  Naps went well today and the kids actually stayed up past 6 pm tonight, so we are praying for a full night’s sleep!  Maybe our second week here will…

Grocery Shopping (Part 2)

Community Group Farewell

We have so loved being a part of the Spann community group over the last 2 years and are really going to miss it!  We got together this week for one last time of fellowship as a group before we leave.  This group has been so real and genuine, and has loved us so well!…

Dress Up

Our girls love to play dress up.  Lucky for them the house we are staying in this summer has an amazing dress up room.  I mean, this is a little girl’s dream room.  Racks of clothes, jewelry, hats, purses, all kinds of other accessories, and even big fun mirrors to enjoy it all in!  Here…
