EXCITED!

Just 6 sleeps and then we'll be on our way to visit my folks down in South Africa. We shall be there for almost a month and look so forward to the time of rest. Ami and Bradley want to go to the zoo with aunty Judy (a dear friend who attends our church down there) and they also want to go to a dairy farm. Ami wants to see how bumper cars work and go on a ferris wheel. We are so thankful to be able to just have a break from life and work here in Malawi. There is not much to do here for the kids and so to be able to go to the zoo and to a mall and have ice cream will be a real treat! Over Christmas time many folks go away, we have already seen a drop in church attendance. It'll pick up again when the holiday makers return around mid January.

Have fun! Our kids measure time in terms of "sleeps" too =).

Yipee! It's so fun to see your blog! The first time I'm looking at it..so I had to read everything! Have fun in South Africa! We're also expecting #4 in June....great minds think alike! All of our kids are almost the same...1 girl, 2 boys...wonder what the #4's will be? Are you guys going to find out? We can't legally here because it's against the law...but I have a new friend who is an american and she's a doctor....:) So..we might be able to find out. I'm due June 12th...what about you? But....I am still suffering from nausea! 15 weeks and counting...it's better the last few days though so I'm thankful, but now I have a terrible cough and chest and nasal congestion. How are you managing with your 3 and the pregnancy? It's been tough...I had to take off some time from schooling...and use friend's help, but somehow I'm almost back on schedule! Which curriculum are you using? My email is nwilliams@gracechurch.org. I'd love to chat a bit about homeschooling....Take care my friend!

Hi! Do you have a cell phone while you are here? We'd love to plan a time to get together with you in the next week or so.
