Here are some more pictures from things we've been up to.
Since Ana isn't in school yet we've been spending lots of quality time together. We went to McDonald's to hang!!
This is just Ana being cute!
Durant was super excited about his train track he made!!
We've been getting to know our city better!! Here are the boys sitting with a former mayor!
A morning before school. Durant was so excited when it was finally cool enough to wear a sweatshirt in the morning!!! He asked me to take a picture and send it to Grandma (she bought the sweatshirt)!
Grandma Connie came for a visit!! The kids were so surprised. We decided not to tell them. We had fun eating old fashion malts at the Steak and Shake.
So Matt the non blogger, non facebooker, non tweeter, and recently just discovered what Google Reader is has decided to start a blog all by himself!!! So I thought I'd share it with you all.... turns out he has some pretty good stuff to share, who know?
Oh right just all the regular attenders at Valleybrook church, Coffee Shop workers, friends, family and pretty much any stranger that will listen!
Well since Matt has the camera in Ethiopia with him, I thought I'd use this time to catch up on some stuff that just didn't make the blog during the move....
Since we've been in Louisville lots has happened. Jackson turned 7! He got to choose anywhere to eat and he picked Culver's! I know, I know with 1.2 million people here and countless choices of eating establishments he picks that one......
The kids started brand new schools!! And they also starting riding the bus to school for the first time ever!! Here is a picture of Matt talking with the bus driver and learning that oops.... this was the wrong bus!!! Okay, here is the right bus now!!! We're still learning this big city life!! The boys are really liking school a lot and they think riding the bus is really fun! There go my boys.... yes it was very hard putting them onto a bus all by themselves! I'm so glad they have each other. Matt and I also celebrated 11 years of marriage!!! Yahoo!! 11 years living with my best friend and it just keeps getting better and better. He is an amazing man of God and I am so blessed to be able to be his wife!
We also celebrated living in Louisville for one month!! It went by super fast and at the same time feels like we've been here forever. I think we're starting to get into a nice routine and figure some things out.
Thanks for following along with us on these crazy journeys that God takes us on! Eyes That See if officially getting started in Ethiopia as you read this!!!!
On Labor Day we went to a Family Palooza put on by Southeast Church. We attended this church last week and enjoyed it. We are going to go back again this weekend to see if we all still like it. Finding a church is not an easy thing!!
The Family Palooza was a lot of fun and all free!!! The kids had a lot of fun.
Durant and Ana riding the train!
High fives and hugs for Larry Boy!
Jackson and his friend Kalkidan had to do some jousting!
Bouncy Houses are the best!!
Cooling off with some treats! It was a hot day!
Durant and Ana getting close with the animals.
Here are the boys standing in front of the actual horse used in the Disney movie The Secretariat.
We had a chance to check out the Kentucky State Fair! It was a lot of fun and the weather was really nice. There were a ton of animals to see. We had to try all the fair foods.... corn dogs, roasted almonds, cheese fries, and funnel cake!
Wow! I'm very behind in my blogging these days!! Still getting caught up with things. Here are some fun pictures from our camping trip this summer. This was the first time that Matt and I ever camped together - 11 years!! And lets be honest.... probably our last time camping!! We are so not campers, but we did have a great time. The kids loved it too!!
