Daddy's Girls!!


Mitch and his girls.........well, one girl is taking the picture! I thought this was a cute picture.

Found a new friend!


Our friends found a turtle walking by their gate drinking some run off water. Here are some pictures and video of this curious fellow. Eli said his name should be George!! video

Baking and Cleaning





In December, I unpacked the Bosch mixer and started putting it to good use. I use it several times a week making bread, dinner rolls, hamburger buns, hot dog buns and scones. I know what you are thinking......no way!! I used to occasionally bake from scratch and now it is a necessity. Honestly, it has been fun. One of my friends here makes Martha Stewart look like an amateur. She is an awesome baker and cook. She gave me some tips and some of her high altitude recipies and they are great. The other pictures are of veggies and fruits bought on the local market. They are drying out from all the "cleaning prep" that needs to be done. However, it is worth it! The fruits and veggies are delicious. Fresh mangos, papayas, plums, oranges, strawberries and sweet melon. the lettuce is out of our very own garden. Yummy!!

Guess Who?


For our family in Idaho....look really closely to this picture. Who do you think the man is in this picture? We will give you a hint......he is from Germany........it is Dirk!! Surprise Daniel Son!! It is such a small, small world. He was visiting Ethiopia for business and came to our small church branch one Sunday. So after all these years, we have to see him again in Ethiopia. It really is a small world. Daniel, I need you here.........Dirk and Mitch are speaking German and I need a translator!!

Running, it may be in the genes!

Glori loves to run........either being chased by her brother or chasing her brother. For family that may be watching this......does she look like someone...oh about 30 years ago! Hee, Hee, Hee

Look, no training wheels!

In the last month, Eli started to ride his bike again. After a few wipe outs and scraped knees, he is riding his bike without training wheels. Hooray! He loves his bike and rides it every chance he gets. Now, he rides like a pro. video
