Here's a few pictures to give you an idea of what's going on in our lives.

Kaitlyn is such a great traveler. We bought her this backpack just before we left America. She loved it and did such a great job of carrying it through airports in New York City, London, Johannesburg, and Bloemfontein. It wasn't too heavy--just some extra clothes, toys, etc.

We spent the first weekend we were home with the van der Merwe's in South Africa. While we were there, S.W., their oldest son, was getting ready to plant some oats. Instead of oats he planted a tractor! This was the wettest summer in many years in South Africa. Every thing is green, but a lot of bridges and roads washed out in Lesotho.

Kaitlyn and Kristell were playing house with a sheet stretched over the table. You can see Kristell is pretty spunky! She loves to climb--chairs, tables, steps, stools, anything she can find to gain altitude.

I thought it was a wastebasket. She thought it was a hat!

The church here at Matukeng planned a surprise "welcome home" service for us this Sunday. We didn't know anything was going on until we got to the church and found it all decorated.

This was the message written on the bulletin board. You can see why we are so happy here!

Kaitlyn went up with the Sunday School children, but she didn't know the song they were singing. She'll have to start practicing every Sunday afternoon with them again.

After the service was over, everyone shared a nice meal of rice, beans, and fried chicken. We were very touched by their love and care!
