Video: What About Sam?

Another video update! We’ve had lots of questions in the last few years about what life in Kenya will look like for Sam. Here’s a short overview of what he’s up to, which makes me think we should do a video with him very soon. So check back for that before long!

Also, I received Sam’s new curriculum just a few days ago and am absolutely thrilled to get started this week! After lots of searching and asking and praying, we decided to try Simply Classical from Memoria Press. It is a Classical Christian program, which means we’ll be focusing on literature and memorization along with many fine and gross motor activities (little movements for pre-writing and big movements for running & jumping). Lots of Dr Suess and Margaret Wise Brown, short Bible verses and prayers, letter tracing, songs, and nature walks. It was written by a woman with a Masters degree in special education who also has two grown children with special needs.  I’ll let you know in a few weeks how it’s working!

Under the Weather

Oh friends, I’m so sorry for the quietness you’ve found here recently. I’ve hit an illness that seems to be lingering. A few weeks ago, I caught a cold with pretty typical symptoms for me. with But I think my immunity was down during that, inviting other illnesses to sneak in. The little sicknesses that are brand new for my body in this environment. Until a few days ago, I was still able to be out and about, playing with the kids and getting ready for the upcoming school year. This week, however, has been harder. I’ve spent the last three days in bed, yesterday and today with a stomach bug. I wasn’t planning on sharing this since I know so many friends want to hear the cool, new parts of life in Africa, but I would just really love your prayers for healing. This may not be a cool part of life, but it’s a part of it, nonetheless. And don’t worry, my doctor hubby and kiddos are taking very good care of me. I’ll be back at it soon!

Thank you so much for your prayers! I truly do appreciate every single one.
