i love it! it’s my new favorite thing! 

amanda and tim were online this afternoon and heather, mom and i were able to snag them and chat! oh what fun it was! i hadn’t got worried about them until they called the first night and talked to mom and dad, but hearing them today is so exciting! they were in such good spirits! : ) we laughed and they sounded soo good! i’m sure they are exhausted having traveled for so long. amanda said the 8 hour flight was tough! i bet! i’ve never sat for that long without stopping to at least walk around. i am praying now for their flight home with kiddo(s) having to sit for that long! i hope they can sleep the majority of that flight!! 

anyway! it was so fun to hear from them and i can’t wait to hear from them again! i feel very blessed to have a new computer with a camera too! the kiddos can skype back and forth; chat and see each other and all of this is FREE! so fun!! but i personally don’t care how much it costs to talk to them! i will pay whatever. : ) you can’t put a price on talking to them fo-sho! 

i wish i had fiber-optics though. i think my connection is the one that is “weak” out of all of us when we conference called this afternoon. or it could just be that we were connecting almost half way around the world! how cool is that?!

how fun is this!!! it’s from anna

This award comes with a questionnaire:

1. Do you have the same friends since childhood? yes, i do. in some form or another. they have not all maintained the same level of friendship but over all, yes i am and a few more. 

2. What do you value most about your friends? like-mindedness, honesty, trust, understanding, a heart after God’s, and respect for my beliefs and passions

3. Are your friends your sounding boards? yes very much so (isn’t that kinda what makes them your friends after all)

4. What is your favorite activity to share with your friends?

mc; chattin over a latte

heather; chattin on the phone, or outside in the lawn lounging, a lesson in life 

amanda; a good shopping trip and a visit to my house for the afternoon a good ol’ reality check

– fun times!


I’m also supposed to share this award with 3 other friends… 

my mc

my sister heather

my sister amanda

(i just simply had to change it to three instead of four. if i picked someone else, then i had to pick eight because no one friend is more of a friend than another. i value you all!!!)


my heart and mind…

…aren’t here today! they are in a whole nother country with my brother in law and sister!

i can’t stop thinking about them!

wondering what they are doing…

if they got the internet card to work…

if the cellphone started working right…

if they are warm (i’m freezing)…

if they found some good food (i’m starving!)… 

basically anything and everything i do makes me think of them! this may seem like just an ordinary day but it is not ordinary at all!

 i’m so excited for them! what an experience to get to go to another country and come home with a bonus or two!!!!! this is their time and i’m so excited for them! i just simply can’t wait for them to come home! 

…until then, every time my phone rings i will secretly (or i may even say it) wish it were them calling! and i will obsessively make sure my volume is up on my computer just incase they skype!
