¿Qué tal? - How are things?

Buenos días! Good morning! Dwayne, Dylan & I are learning Spanish. We just started and it is going well, although it's a little embarrassing that our 4-year-old is learning faster than us! He is just so eager!

We want to go on a mission trip to a small town in México in the Fall. There is an orphanage there that the kids and I would help at and there is maintenance for Dwayne to work on. We want to pack our luggage and then find out what the luggage limit is for us on the plane and fill our suitcases with things that the orphanage needs. What a great feeling! I really want to help and I also want our children (and us) to see how others live and how little others have. It will make us more appreciative of what we have and that new electronic gadget (or whatever) may not seem quite so important anymore. It sure would be nice to plan an annual trip.

The only thing I see holding us back is if we get pregnant again - which would certainly not be a bad thing either!! We'll have to see what God has in store for us.

What a wonderful thing for your family to do! There is nothing better than the feeling of helping others.
Bring us back a child!
