First Broken Bone

by Carolyn

 Hi, my name is Carolyn. I am nine years old. This is my first blog post. I am the only person in my family to break a bone.  I was playing at a friend's house, my friend rolled a barrel, and I tried to stop it from rolling by jumping onto it. NOT smart! I fractured both bones in my right arm.
Thankfully my arm healed well like the doctor thought it would.
Next time I will tell you about my trip to the jungle!

Granola Class

Dan and the kiddos are in the jungle and someone took the memory card out of my camera. Today would have been a great day for pictures since I had a "granola making class" with three Ecuadorian friends. We finished the granola and moved on to chocolate chip cookies. They were so thrilled and obviously not in a hurry to leave, so we also made pizza! Hopefully the gals will be able to handle reading, measuring, and mixing on their own at home.

We had a great 2 months in the US. One big event was the wedding of Dan's niece.  
Dan officiated his niece's wedding.

 Andy (right) and his cousin were ushers and helped out with several other set-up jobs.

  Here I am with my nephew and niece (not the one who got married!).

 Carolyn wore a dress (!) and looked very cute and comfy.

We visited in Iowa and Washington and will share more pictures later. And hopefully someone gets some good pictures of the their jungle trip!
