The weeks are flying by here so here is the latest happenings... 
We were able to go out and visit a church dedication out in the country. Here are some pictures of what we saw on our trip.
On the way back we stopped to eat and after eating we were told there was a small zoo outback, here is what we saw...and I should mention, these pictures are not zoomed. I could have reached in and touched all of these animals.
A toucan
A monkey
and what looks like a cross between a raccoon and an anteater, its called a South American Coati.
Even though we've been busy I decided one day to drop all I was doing and have a picnic with the kids and  they loved it!
I was actually convicted I needed to spend a little more quality time with my kids, it hurts to hear our three year old say to his little sister, "not now Jade, I've got work to do". 
These last few weeks have been rather stressful at times. Both kids have had colds, no big deal until Jade started gagging and throwing up. She did this just about every other day (sometimes it was everyday) for the last three weeks. I've found it to be emotionally draining. She is better now and I've learned to clean up throw-up with great speed:-)
We were excited this last week to receive some packages from friends, it really brighten our week! Jamen couldn't get enough of the box...
neither could Brewster!
