We're Back

I have not posted in a long time. Partly because we don't have internet at our house and partly because there is not a lot to say. However I do want to let you know we are doing well.

We have been in the States for almost 3 weeks and are getting a little more use to life here. Although we know that this once again is a transition time before we go back to Uganda.
Joshua and Samuel have been enjoying playing soccer on an organized team. It is the same team they played on before so that has been a huge blessing for them. Janaya has enjoyed being around some of her friends again. Carter was excited to play with his toy guns again :), and Malachi doesn't remember much of our life here but he is gradually learning all about "Western"life. And Eliana is walking and turned 1 last week, which is hard for us to all believe.
As for Cody and I we are doing pretty good. We are now in New Castle and will be here for a while before traveling for the summer to visit family and friends. We are trying to focus on spending time together as a family. I have been busy with doing school with the kids but have enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Cody has been helping me with school and involving himself in different Bible Study groups, and activities around the Valley. 

After we are finished with school we are planning on traveling around the U.S. to see family and friends so we hope to see many of you.

Oh and just a side note. Our internet site is down. We are trying to change our provider and are having problems so we apologize for that! Hopefully we can get it up soon!

Going to Hotchkiss from the Airport. Eliana got used to the car seat pretty quickly.

Just hours after being in the States.


  1. What a neat family photo {although you and Cody look very thin, something we know all to well}. I sure miss you. Our texts, emails and phone calls. Take care my friend.
