This week we drove from Columbia, SC where we spent a lovely week with friends and enjoying a Sunday at our home church to Glen Ellyn, IL, a suburb of Chicago. We have four supporting churches in Illinois so we've settled into an apartment of our own for the month. During the week we will try to have as "normal" of a life as possible, keeping up with our home schooling. On the weekends we will travel to speak at our churches and visit with friends.
We arrived in Illinois to beautiful snow and we have all enjoyed getting out and playing in it everyday!
Today Eli's brother and his wife and son came to spend the day and it was a great day for catching up, relaxing together, and enjoying our adorable 3 month old nephew!
It was a beautiful afternoon so we all bundled up and tried geo cashing for the first time. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's kind of like a treasure hunt. People hide things all over the country and leave "maps" online so you can follow the directions and find things that other people left/hid. It was a first for our family and the boys loved it!
This was the first "treasure" we found. Josh found it first!
Treasure #2 and guess who spotted it first again? Josh!
Of course we just had to get a fun family picture out in the snow! Oh what a day!
