We were so blessed to be able to have time with our families before departing for Africa. We spend some precious time with the our family, Jenny’s side, in North Carolina after leaving Quebec. We enjoyed so much being together and it was incredibly difficult to leave. God allowed us to coordinate a reunion with […]
We had the privilege of going to a kids club with our family at one of the churches here in the area. Thought you might enjoy some pictures of the kids enjoying kids club here in Senegal! The kids broke up into three groups. Two of the groups were taught in Wolof, a language of […]
To vaccinate or not to vaccinate, that is the question! We are almost on our way, but there are so many little and big decisions to be made along the way.
It seems like just yesterday that we brought James and Jada home, and now they are 5 years old. Where did the time go? James and Jada are such a blessing to our family...
A few weeks ago we were so excited when we checked our mail and saw that we had a package waiting for us at the Boni Soir (Canada Post outlet near us). We got coats on the family after the kids got home from school and picked up our package. Below you can see some […]
Thank you so much for your prayers for our family and all the adjustments we have been making. Today the kids had a good first day at school and made it onto the right bus to get back home! They actually have a French speaking (bi-lingual) home room teachers so that should help them with […]
Emmanuel celebrated his 8th birthday here in Quebec at a beautiful park. We had such a great time and were able to invite our new neighbors who are also here to study French with us. They have two boys who are 7 and 6 years old. They have all really enjoyed having each other to […]
This last weekend we had the priviledge of celebrating the wedding of Misty ( Jenny’s Sister), and Andy. Our daughter spent the first several minutes of the wedding ceremony crying because she was going to miss her “mia moo”, Aunt Misty. It is going to be hard to be away from the family, but it was so […]
Below are some pictures of the process of watching some “cute” caterpillars becoming moths. This is the first time that we have been through the whole process with the kids. We went camping in late may and Jenny took the opportunity to collect some caterpillars off our our tent and bring them home for this […]

I enjoy posting at least one picture per blog post, so I put this picture of Jenny and James. I suppose that I should have taken a picture of her looking a little more frazzled or something to go along with the theme of her needing a chance to Break Away. Jenny is away for […]
It is hard to believe that our little Elena is 6 already. We were blessed to be joined by a number of her biological family members. It was so good to have them with us and to celebrate Elena. We have posted some pictures of her birthday on our Photos page. Feel free to check them out and enjoy […]
The kids are really enjoying being involved with the Awana program here in Wisconsin. It is incredible how quickly they are able to memorize scripture verses. On weeks when there is no special event Jenny and I go out on a date while the kids are at Awana Clubs. It is a great opportunity to […]
