It seems like I looked up, and just like that, 11 days had passed! Sorry about that! It was a whirlwind of our last week of school, a month-end (which means added financial work for me), and then a quick trip to Livingstone with Blu! Here is a little of what's been going on around here!
We got a visit from Ricky, Niki, Coby, & Kelsey! They stayed a couple of nights on their way to Lake Kariba for a missions' conference their South Carolina church was leading! We had a great visit - eating Chinese food in The Ark and hanging out at the fire pit during the LONG Friday power outage!
Look! I have miniature roses! One bush is pink and the other is white! Love!
There's been a LOT of gymnastics going on at our house as Blu used his new welding skills to build a bar for the kids! I can't hardly watch - I'm so scared they're going to fall on their heads!
An evening walk to check out progress on Happy Hollow!
The slab has been poured - the first line goes down on Monday!
Every Saturday, the New Day kids help wash their own clothes.
Caedmon & Cambree put together a tea time snack for me as I cleaned the house on Saturday morning! Fresh carrots, peach tea, and peanut butter! :)
April is the month of field trips here at New Day! Last year, we took a huge field trip to Lusaka (flying in an airplane, riding horses, etc...etc...), so this year we decided to keep it a little smaller. We are taking 4 different field trips, and the Big Girls were the first to go this weekend! They went with Mama Lala, Papa Wes, and Mama Liz to Livingstone! They enjoyed swimming, a boat cruise, shopping, and a special date night with Papa Wes!
On the way! (The girls were so excited they woke up at 4am!)
6 girls + this guy :)

Lunch = pizza!

Swimming time - it was an unusually cool weekend, but they still braved the pool!
Date night pics!
The girls had a great time, and now it's the Big Boys' turn! They will head to Lake Kariba (Siavonga) to spend 2 nights on a houseboat on a fishing trip! Meanwhile, the rest of us are looking forward to our upcoming week off of school - my closet is calling out to me.."Clean me! Organize me!" :)
