Firsts in the USA

Well our time in the States has been busy. We have visited many friends and supporters and been really blessed by spending time with each one. Many friends have been waiting a long time to meet Amy & Joshua. It was fun to see how our friends families have also grown - this provided many new play mates for Amy & Josh. Our visit also included a number of 'firsts' for the kids:

Before leaving for Home Assignment the kids had been really wanting to see snow and their wish was granted

Since our children are not used to living in a country with seasons they did well. The snow was closely followed by spring flowers like daffodils.

Having left for Home Assignment before the end school term Sarah did some home school with Amy and Josh

Amy and Josh (and Sarah) got to go flying with Daddy at the controls

We visited some friends with nearly 50 acres and went 4 wheeling (Quad biking in UK english!)

We were also able to take them out into Amish country where the Amish were busy ploughing their fields and where horses and buggy's ride beside cars.

We are now beginning our month of Home assignment in the UK which will no doubt be just as eventful.
