Our trip to New Zealand was wonderful! God blessed us with safe travel, beautiful weather, amazing sites & very yummy food! Everyone stayed healthy & the children enjoyed their time with my parents, though it rained quit a bit. I'm sorry for being so absent for so long but internet access in NZ was limited (and expensive!).

My heart just wasn't into blogging & I had to get our home organized so I could travel (Eric stayed here with the children) to Ohio this past weekend for the funeral service. Please continue to pray for comfort for my Uncle and cousins, as well as all of our family.
I'm working on several posts of pictures, so stay tuned. For now, let me share these pictures and videos from the children's piano recital at the end of October.
