We are back in California! We had an incredible time in Colorado with Bailey’s family and we were so sad to say goodbye. Now we are here in California with more family and exciting things going. The biggest thing being that the kids have started GOING to school! Santa Maria has a public school that allows the kids to be in a classroom with other kids two days a week and homeschooled the other three days. It seemed to be the perfect way for the kids to have a healthy, American social outlet while not overwhelming them completely. So far they have loved every minute of being in a “real” school for the first time. They have made some friends, and seem to be really thriving. This is a huge answer to prayer!
We’ve also enjoyed being near the beach, Brian’s family, and our sending churches again. We have had some sweet times with all of them in the short month that we’ve been back here and look forward to more over the next few months!
