A much needed treat after getting shots:)
We've had lots of snow again this winter. Mark and I are really ready for some better weather, but the snow doesn't seem to bother Ethan. One day recently he grabbed our snow shovel and had a grand time on our hill!
Recently the international awareness group on campus that Mark and I help with sponsored a water sale to help raise funds for disaster relief in Haiti.
Above and below are a couple of pictures of BFA's first ever wrestling match. This match was an exhibition, but next year wrestling will be an official BFA sport and our school will compete again DODDS (US Dept. of Defense) schools here in Germany.
Ah the joys of cross cultural living. When we arrived at the play place we were tickled to find "Ephan" on the name tag of our party area. There is no "th" sound in the German language, so people are always having a hard time with Ethan's name:) Memories...
On Valentine's Day, the high school student council hosted a Sadie Hawkins dance. Living in a multicultural community, you never know what hidden talents your coworkers may have. Here are a few people from the BFA community teaching the students traditional Scottish dances. The three pictured here have either served in Scotland, are of Scottish decent or BOTH.
Meredith is enjoying the start up of soccer season and was selected as captain of the junior varsity team. She also just "landed" a solo part in a song the choir is singing for the spring concert. It's none other than "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey...one of my favorite songs from my teenage years. Wow, I feel old!
Evan is on the high school track team (middle schoolers are allowed to participate) and is working on sprints and the high jump. He and his band are still working hard in preparation for a paid gig this spring.
Ethan is still loving life as a 3rd grader and is beginning to develop a love for art and drawing.
Mark and I are ever grateful for your prayers for our ministry and especially for our own children. We are all looking forward to a trip home this summer. We truly hope to see you all during our trip.
Praying God's richest blessings on you and yours,
Susan, Mark, Meredith, Evan and Ethan
