A little update for your Wednesday!

The pictures on my desktop are finally driving me crazy - that means it's time to blog so I can move them! Busy here as usual as we finish up school, but sitting here drinking a Spark and listening to KSBJ online and enjoying this gorgeous Spring-type weather we've been having!

Cambree's business is going well...but slow! Her first order was for 15 Bible covers, so she is getting those done! Here is Joseph's, complete with a bookmark!

Cambree and Laston (who is SUCH a mess!!! He is the New Day entertainment lately, for sure!)

These two...

We are 4 months out from furlough...and we pretty much talk about American food constantly these days.. So I made some homemade Chick-Fil-A! It was amazing! (Who knew the secret is a milk/pickle marinade?!)

Our newest, Chipego. This boy is so handsome and VERY smart!

A new dog at Happy Hollow - meet Danu (Day-new)

Love these cutie pies!

This week started the last week of school for this term! We get out Friday and don't go back until May 8th! Here is a look at last week of school happenings!

My kids working on their Math lesson, while I catch up on some reading for my Guided Reading class!

6th grade Language Arts (minus Cambree!)

Teacher Hildah is an amazing head teacher!

The kids! (Pre-K wears yellow, Kinder and up in red!)

Teacher Melvin's crew!

Teacher Mike and his class

Mama Dee leading Monday's teacher devotion!

The New Day Teachers!

Teacher Zali

I have next term's bulletin board all ready to go!

The 3rd Grade Science class finished making their habitats complete with predators/prey

God sent the class a REAL LIVE tortoise to create a habitat for - they named him Raphael!


Cambree made me & Mom some invitations last week for a fancy tea party! This girl loves to host!

I have to say, I LOVE my tea set from Beijing!

And that's a wrap on this school term! Our April break will consist of (God willing) a family camping trip, our annual field trip, and the Prosthetics Team before school starts again on May 8th!

Wagoner, OK Team and more!

It has been a busy week with our Spring Break team from Wagoner, OK here with us! Here is a look at what's been going on!

Uncle Blu & David at Kids Club

Blu was like the Pied Piper last week with this crew following him around!

Now that's having your hands full!

Blu sends me these random pictures while I'm teaching school...

Some of our little ones in a tree!

I promise we're not about to fall asleep in church... ;) Luyando was there to keep us awake!

A closeup of sweet Emma!

And her twin Justin!

This girl is a mess!

She's getting so big!

Love Malilwe's beautiful smile!

Our new bus has arrived!!! It will be PERFECT once the air conditioner is installed!

Only 2 weeks of school left! Cynthia & Muchoni working on a file folder game!

Cason is a budding future electrician like his Paw.. :)

We have had some pretty weather, so Mama Dee took her 3rd grade Science class outside to learn about ecosystems and organisms!

And of course, we had to have green eggs & ham for St. Patrick's Day!

One of the biggest things our team has done is lead a Staff Retreat! Pastor Mark led and Courtlyn led music, while the rest of the team took care of all the teams! It was a great retreat!

Courtlyn leading worship

A cup stacking game!

Mama Lala and Mama Tembo

A massive game of Concentration with New Day faces!

Our usual team cook, Esther, couldn't cook for the team, so we all pitched in to cook! The team was blessed with Blu's famous cinnamon rolls!

All of this fun wears Laston out!

Last year, Michael came and spent hours reading Dora books to Lulu - this year, Lulu helped Nurse Carol make a special welcome for Michael! :)

Lulu was happy to see him!

And...this is what happens when I leave Blu & Cambree home alone at the computer... :)
