|On one of our major road trips|
The first photo shows that traveling has become a big part of our lives as this is Isaac's first year at Rift Valley Academy, a school for missionary kids in Kenya. Every 6 weeks we drive to the capital city to either pick Isaac up for his month long break at home, or for his mid term break which is 6 weeks into his 3 month term. We're so thankful that we now live somewhere close enough to see Isaac this often!!! It is worth all the miles we trek in our car!
|Hauling water for laundry|
I said until today, because Eli figured out a way to install a pump to pump water from the rain barrel up to our main tank so we should be good for water now. Yay!
|Studious 5th & 7th grader|
This is what I spend most of my week doing: home schooling these two amazing boys. We have tried to get on Isaac's school schedule so that we can take off of school when Isaac's home and work hard when he's working hard at school too.
|Carson joins in for some of the subjects|
|Eli working hard in his office|
Although Eli's favorite thing to do is teach, since he is running the ministries alone (without teammates), he also has a lot of admin - budget, emails, phone calls, ordering books, grading papers, etc.) He usually spends the mornings in his office and then goes out to the refugee camps or has meetings in the afternoon.

|Evan's new project|
One of Evan's 13 "Tasks of Manhood" that we gave him on his birthday in March was to completely take a part and put back together a motorcycle. Eli found an old, cheap moped and Evan and his friends have been loving taking it apart and learning mechanics as they go. When Evan gets stuck, Eli jumps in to help.
|Carson loves being outside visiting with neighbors|

|Everyone loves Carson!|
|At "De-de's" house|
De-de means Grandma in Maadi language. This is De-de Grace and she is our village grandmother.
