This is what I have to do when I vacuum. Silas either has to be on my hip or watching from the couch. Sophie too...

These pictures are from my sister Katy's missions trip to Ethiopia last year. She's going back this summer for ONE WHOLE MONTH with Mocha Club! I'm so excited for her as she goes back to spend a month in Ambo working with teachers at a school. She'll use her giftedness as a teacher to equip and encourage the teachers there and the children they teach. I may even be a little jealous that I'm not going too. Just being real. :)
She didn't ask me to post about this but I wanted to. In fact, she may get a little mad. I can take it.
I know she would appreciate your prayers for her and the entire team as they prepare to go...mentally, physically and spiritually. Spending that amount of time there is not without expense...it will cost over $4000. God will provide every penny for her as He has called her to go and do His work. If you'd like to be a part of something BIG for GOD, consider donating to her trip.
The economy stinks and most of us are feeling the pinch, but we're still richer than most of the world. (I'm preaching to the choir here and myself as well.) Let me know if you'd like to give...I can't think of a more worthy place for your money to be spent and I can't think of a more worthy place for my sweet sister to go.That's her in the middle..my sweet sister.

His new favorite thing to do is climb.
Then we headed north to see some friends in the NOVA area. Hoped to meet with President Obama, but he was busy. Maybe next time...
We headed home today in the cold, rain. We stopped in Petersburg, Virginia and saw the house that my MIL grew up in and the home Marshall lived in when he was 3. Fun day, fun weekend.
