New games



This weekend we rested, hiked, baked cookies, and shared a meal with friends. Amelia and her friends made a "village" out of some bushes. They each owned certain products and traded them for other goods.  There is also a trampoline here which the girls have enjoyed playing on. I'm really appreciating how much the girls play outside and are using their imaginations. Above our some pictures of the animals we've encountered.  Meredith enjoyed feeding giraffes, but Amelia was too scared. On the other hand, Amelia will hold any reptile (something I prefer not to touch!). 

Malin went to the OR today for a facial tumor. I have to head there as well for a repeat C-section. Thankfully I had a short break this morning to homeschool and e-mail.

Aren't children adaptable!!! A great life lesson for us who are a bit older.

Frost on the ground and clear skies above make for such a great Central Oregon day. Will meet with our prayer group at Madelle's later today and will certainly pray for you all.

You are off and running or should I say, serving, in such a great way.

Blessings to you all, Kathy Bend, OR

I knew those sweet little girls were too smart for their own good.
Love, Grammie
