Randy and I are finally connected to the internet! We hope to begin blogging regularly again soon. We have been so generously blessed since our return to America! Yes we are daily overwhemled with choices and decisions to be made but this is life in America. Just as it took much time to orient ourselves to the Benin culture, it will take a lot of time to re-orient ourselves to this culture!
Our kids are doing wonderful. They have been surrounded by cousins and friends since we arrived and they absolutely LOVE our rent house.

Yesterday we celebrated Lael's 2 year old birthday! What a sweet surprise gift from God she continues to be in our life! It is such a joy to finally be able to share her with our family and friends.

Hi dear friends, sorry I haven't called, but I wanted to give you a chance to settle in with friends. I know what you mean about being overwhelmed by decisions at first. I'm so glad you had a house to move to right away; we didn't and that was stressful. Will you be coming our way anytime soon? We hope to go to Six Flags in a couple of weeks, and it's really not that far anytime.
