Well, our time with Ben and Aaron, our favorite New Zealanders, is over. We had a blast while they were here. Hiking, extreme trampolining, hot air ballooning (just Ben and Adalia), swimming, the beach, ice skating, tie dying, a bonfire…it was pretty much non-stop fun.
As I mentioned before, Ben and Adalia met last summer on their missions trip to Honduras. They have spent the last year corresponding by mail, email, facebook, skype and phone. They have clearly formed quite an attachment with each other. It was so nice to meet Ben and see that he is indeed just as nice in person as Adalia described.
And now life shall return to the mundane…you know, just average life with eleven kids at home, homeschooling, a photography business, a teen at the community college, a tube-fed toddler with a rare heart defect facing repeat heart surgery, five kids in elementary school, two with special needs…Hopefully I’ll be around here blogging a bit more now. I’ve missed you all.
