The Kids

A couple weeks ago Kristell started wrinkling up her nose and sniffing to get attention. We encouraged her, and now it's pretty dramatic:

While we were on vacation in Kimberley, South Africa, we made s'mores one night. Kaitlyn really enjoyed it!

Yesterday we went to a train museum. They had the cab of an old steam locomotive in the museum with all the controls still work able. It was very interesting.

Ladies' Retreat

Oops! I wanted to post these pictures last week (thanks Amrie for some of the pics), but couldn't get some of them to post. Sorry. (I'm still learning how to put things on the blog. Glenn has been the one doing most of the blogging.)

Here's our group from the retreat, left to right--
Amrie Geise, Gwen Geise, Stephanie and Kristell Gault,
Hessie van der Merwe, Michelle Waterson.
Notice the scarlet leaves which covered one whole wall of the mill building we stayed in.

We went to a place called Don-Don, an old mill.
We stayed in a part called the Old Shop

which had been renovated into this lovely guest house.

Aunt Hessie grilled for all of us one night--
the mutton chops and sausage were delicious!

We all had a very nice time talking, laughing,
praying, walking, and relaxing together.

Kristell really enjoyed the walk!

Thank you to each one who gave so we could have this
special weekend!
