Giving, pt. 2!!

My dear friends! It’s been over a month since I went to the second orphanage, which took place about 2 months after I had thought it’d happen. But the important part is that it happened! And this time it wasn’t a family trip, but rather I went with the middle school kiddos from my school!…

April and some May!

In one week, The Big One and The Biggest One will make their way to Texas, and The Little One and myself will stay here until school finishes, and then fly out on the 19th of June! I will have a separate post about leaving Liberia. It’s definitely hard!  Until then, Here are several videos…

Paris in the Springtime

This is a post filled with only pictures from a touring company in Paris called Localers. We chose a tour called the Parisian Lifestyle Photo Shoot. We chose it because our flight was changed to fly directly out of Paris instead of Brussels, and this shoot was the last one available-ish. After lots of emailing…

In less than two weeks…

…we’ll be in Paris!! And this place is all I can think about: http://dupainetdesidees.com/en/ I plan to go there every morning…even if it takes an hour on the subway…even if I have to go alone.  *drool* However, since you can’t go there, I’ll leave you with a few pictures of the little nuggets to boost…

Giving, Part 1

Some of you may remember my request for donations this past Christmas. I asked for goods or cash to purchase items that I could carry back with us to Liberia to bless some children at a local orphanage. I received several bags of donated items, plus gift cards and a student chapel offering from Holy…

Real, actual singing!

just sharing a little cuteness! She definitely sings songs that I can’t pick out at all, but she picked up the words for this one the other night and it’s just about the cutest thing yet!! Enjoy!

Kendeja again

Yesterday we had a scheduled power outage from noon – 6 so we could get a new generator something something that would kick it back on instead of having to manually turn it on, which our business manager would have to do before, even in the middle of the night. 😦 So, since it would…

Random Update!

Ok- here’s an update from our last two weeks!  We had The Big One’s birthday party (again) here on the 16th, and it was a murder mystery party. I think the kids had fun, and I know she loved being Muffy the Millionaire in the mystery! The PE teacher came with her daughter (from The…

Sorry…longest post ever! 

Ok, I’m just gonna put everything here, all rolled into one enormous update! These pics will mostly be from my phone, with another post with ‘real camera’ photos…soon.  First off: The Biggest One was asked to write a guest entry for the TTUHSC alumni blog, which you can find here. I think that’s pretty amazing!! If you…

16 months old!

Oh just a few wee changes…hair…ginormica size…the usual for our large babies! She was snuggling with me on the couch and I tried to sneak some pictures, but the little ham saw the camera immediately! Her ‘cheese’ face!    Ignore my face…her eyes are lovely! Two piggies! More ‘cheese’ face! Also, last weekend we attended…

November in Liberia

November is a crazy month, school schedule-wise, especially when you add in the time away for my dad’s funeral. The school has to observe both Liberian and American holidays, and November is full of ’em! First, there’s two days off (5th & 6th) for Liberian Thanksgiving, which one of our drivers told me that everyone…
