A Day in My Life

A couple weeks ago Molly Burns asked me what my days were like.  I wrote her back a super long email about my days and then realized that all of you might like to hear about my days.  So I cut and pasted my email to Molly. “My days…oh, they are all the same. My…

Fat White Baby

The PNG ladies like Sylvie.  I think they like all little white babies.  Its cute to see them hold her. The other day I was in the store talking to a couple of PNG national ladies who work there.  I kind of laughed at our conversation about Sylvie.  The conversation went sort of like this:…

Sick-o

Fleece, blanket and hat isn’t our normal attire in 80 degree PNG.  In the middle of the night last Joseph started feeling really sick…achy joints, fever, super cold.  Today he added a weird rash to that list of symptoms.  Thankfully we are right here on the base with the clinic, so he was able to…

Sylvie Update

Before we left, lots of people asked us if we were worried about our kids transitioning back.  We kept telling people we were worried about the oldest two since they know more now and might be even more sad about leaving friends and family, but we certainly weren’t worried about Sylvie since she was just…

Another New Home

This is our house.  For now.  (I tried to count them up, and I think this is home #12 since Belle was born.) And that’s our sweet little boy on the stairs (for scale.) I’m not sure if you can tell from this picture or not, but as far as size goes, this house is…

Passport Photos

We recently applied for Sylvie’s passport (still waiting to get it back so we can buy plane tickets!) and had to renew Belle’s and Lucy’s. As we were doing that I was thinking how funny it is that 3 of our kids have passport photos from when they were tiny babies. I thought ya’ll might…

Lovely Fall Saturday

Today was a perfect day.  The temperature was perfect for playing outside, the sky was perfectly blue, the leaves were fabulous colors and we had a fun-filled family day at home.  It was so nice.  It was the kind of fall day I missed last year while we were in the land of perpetual summer…

The Doc is In

The girls are really into Doc McStuffins right now. (That’s a Disney cartoon for those of you who don’t have preschoolers at your house!) My parents got Lucy a Doc McStuffins medical kit for her birthday. The other day Belle and Lucy were having a great time using that kit to doctor their baby sister!…

Pumpkin Patch

Fall is here!  Its so fun to be here and get to enjoy the change of seasons! Today we went to pick out our pumpkin.  We absolutely had to get a pumpkin, since we missed out on all fall festivities last year, however, considering Sylvie is still only 9 days old we didn’t feel we…
