Happy 2014

The first two weeks of this new year have been busy. For us, just getting a fairly good family photo can be an all-day job. We managed to get this one not only with the self-timer, but on the first try.

We are back into the swing of homeschool and BSF. Along with that, so far this year we've had one teen night, a piano lesson, two dentist appointments, a birthday dinner party for a friend, and a fellow missionary family for lunch. I don't even keep track of the hours Dan has spent trying to get my visa transferred from my old passport to my new one. We've been at it since May..of last year.

Yesterday, we went to the park for P.E. It's the second time we've been there, and maybe we'll remember to take bread for the ducks on our third visit.
(The dribbling duck had just gotten a bite of Carolyn's cupcake!)
  Andy had trouble getting "real" exercise because of his long arms and legs. :)
And me...well, I'm just enjoying having my very own minion to put to work!

Your pics are adorable - well done, getting all four smiling at once!

I call my boys my minions when I need their help ;D

Julie -- Let me know if you need 3 minion hats. I'll be in Graham in February and can mail them to you!

That's very kind, but they just got fun/funny hats for Christmas. You're going to be in Graham? Too bad we were just down to Ashford last month - won't be heading that way for awhile. But if you travel north, let me know :D
