Here's Timo out on the lagoon greeting some folks enjoying the canoe ride. He is also real excited about these grey shorts...because they have pockets! He can put all kinds of things in there. Keys and money (both of which he likes to steal from Daddy) and his rope (so he can be ready to rope a cow). He's a fun little man!

My mom and dad are on the plane, due to arrive back in Fort Worth tonight. It was a sweet month of great conversations and lots of hearty laughter. They blessed our family in countless ways everyday and our kids made memories that they will be talking about for the rest of their lives. Tori and Timothy made sure every minute was spent to the maximum and thankfully Paw and Precious had the energy to match their requests. Jonathan and Lael also did their sweet part to make their personalities known...Our last few days at the beach were a lot of fun. Wednesday seemed to sneak up on us all. It was an especially difficult goodbye for Tori and Timothy...and me too! After being together around the clock for almost a month, it is a big thing to try and understand for these little minds, as to why they have to leave and why we live so far away. We have taken alot of pictures and want to add them to the blog soon. Check back in a day or two!

Friday morning Dad went for an early morning bike ride with Tori and Timothy before school. We are squeezing as much as we can into these last few days with Paw and Precious. We will be leaving for the beach tomorrow and will be there until Tuesday when we will go to Cotonou. They fly out on Wednesday. This has been a wonderful month!
Thursday afternoon we were invited to Ega's house for a meal. Almost every one who has ever visited our family has shared this experience. Our friendship with Ega obviously runs very deep. (We are in the process of adopting Lael, his 4th child) Here he is with my parents and his 3 children. They are all very precious too us.
