3 Amigas

The sheer volume of laughter that rose up out of the basement when these 3 had a sleepover the other night was pretty....significant. And for no apparent reason other than that they were together. Elise + Casey + Christy = loud hilarity.

Visiting Karlie

This is one of Evelyn's sweet little friends, Karlie. They are soccer buddies. Karlie was recently admitted to Children's for a procedure. Due to unexpected setbacks she's been hospitalized since the beginning of January. She is such a trooper and has appropriately earned the nickname "one tough cookie." We've been down to visit several times this month. Evelyn would go daily if I let her. Her favorite thing to do is hang out on Karlie's bed.

We brought her sister Kia with us Friday and Evelyn had decided to bring her cello to play for Karlie.

We brought Kia back home for a sleepover with Janelle, but Evelyn was greatly disappointed that Karlie couldn't come home with us. Come home soon, sweetpea! We're praying for you.

The Brewers

Pastor, Care Group Leader, fellow Terps fan, good friend - we just call him Brew.
The whole Brewer family turned up to help the Admin Team with setup for the Youth Banquet last weekend.
Taking a break to play Duck, Duck, Goose - or as Alethea calls it Cheeseburger, Hotdog, Ketchup.
These two ought to have earned the status of Honorary Admin Team members by now. Great job with the crepe paper in the lobby, Girlies!

This "bobby" lives over the ocean

Meet one of our favorite people, Tola Munro; one of Wales' finest policemen. Tola popped in for a visit from Caerphilly, Wales last weekend while he was in the U.S. Last April, the whole Munro family stayed with us for 2 fun weeks during their vacation and we quickly fell in love with all of them. So much so that there is often talk of visiting Wales one day. It was great to see you, Tola and to Llywela, Elliott, Carys, Esther, and Abigail, we miss you terribly!
from their visit at Easter last year:

NYC through Janelle's eyes

Janelle had my new digital camera in her hands far more than I did in New York. Here are just a few of the almost 1,000 pcitures she took in 3 days. This first one she took of herself in the back of the car as we drove out of Manhattan. She has quite an eye for photography. Nelly, is there anything you can't do? Oh right - wear pink.
