Fun times outside!

 Naomi is admiring her new sandals outside on our back porch!

 And even doing a little walking!

 Jonathan got a ride on Mr. Bill's motorcycle, so fun!

 Jonathan trying out his big boy bike... he is pretty good, except for the starting and stopping part. :) The bike is just a little too tall for him.

A cruise ship docked in Wewak, a very huge ship! We have never seen so many tourists walking around town!

Fun at Home!

 We enjoy having friends over for dinner once in a while! I love making yummy food for everyone and everyone seems to love eating it! Mike and Ruth from the mission organization Friends in Action, just down the road, came over for Canadian Thanksgiving! And here we are enjoying apple pie!

 All is quiet before dinner as the children watch a little tv. Naomi seems to like it too!

 Jonathan is always prepared with a sword hiding in the back of his shirt. :)

 A friend gave Jonathan a "new" train seat... a very large one!!

 Snack time!

 Naomi has discovered the yummy taste of peanut butter, on her apple!

 In just one week we had two different coworker families give us LOTS and LOTS of used books!! FUN!

 Having fun with word building... Jonathan is saying, "Pyramid!" It is fun to teach Jonathan how to read!

 Naomi is trying out her first pair of shoes for walking... pretty sandals, which she loves!

 More fun with word building! Did you know that a maple fish produces maple syrup? According to Jonathan that is... I told him we needed one of those fish here!

 Naomi has her own play remote control which she uses to try to turn on the tv. :)

 She loves to watch the show, "Praise Baby" just before dinner while I finish up the cooking. It is music videos to praise songs with lots of babies, animals, trains, shapes and nature in it.

Jonathan got a new sweatshirt from a friend, a fun hand me down! The next day we went to Goroka for break, which is in the 'cold' mountains, so he got a lot of use out of this sweatshirt!

Happy Birthday to Naomi! - One Year Old!

 She was excited to pick apart the cake and even ate some too!

 Her favorite gift seems to be the bag that her stuffed dog came in. :)

It was a fun celebration! One year seemed to go by so fast!

Work projects...

 I got a new island counter top for my birthday!!


 Pouring cement for a new front porch for Thomas and Petra's house.

 What to do when the lock on the storage room door breaks and you are unable to get in.. send in your 4 year old!

 And when your four year old can't use the screwdriver to unlock the door, you go in too. :)

Yep, they did get it unlocked and Jacob put a new lock on the door. :) Only in a third world country the lock breaks before you lose the key.

 Jacob finished building this new door for Supply (where missionaries get their food and other supplies)... an experiment... a wooden door rots quickly so Jacob tried a new look, it is made out of tin, just like the siding on the buildings.

 We are checking out this new door just before heading to Goroka for our break, Jonathan is ready to go on the plane! :)
