Each a Year Older | Weekending

We've been so busy gallivanting...and birthday photos haven't been shared! Peter turned nine this year, Ezra seven. They're old enough to make their own sandwiches and do laundry, although they'd have rather mom do it.

Pete wanted strawberry shortcake and then saw a picture of these donut sandwiches with strawberries and whipped cream inside and changed his vote. They actually look better than they taste. And Buzz requested an Oreo cake. Things got a little out of hand. #humongous #somuchpowderedsugarandbutter
We have been away from home a lot, but when we're not I've been giving my boys math pages and writing prompts and reading assignments to do. They just love me for it. #summerslide #makesthemwanttotravel

Weekend Sharing:
Oinofyta Refugee Camp near Athens, Greece
I'm traveling here with an all-girls team on an exploratory trip to see how New Reality International can best be involved in the #refugeecrisis. Adventist Help is already doing so much good stuff.

Flat Island, near Kailua, Oahu
We kayaked to this little island and were able to count more than ten eggs hiding in the holes of volcanic rock. Ezra said that this was his most favorite thing that we did in Hawaii!
