Mexico, Cruisers and More

We are getting all settled in. You can see in the picture above that Tait was a big help in that process. After three weeks our stuff is hung, put away and decorated. We are really loving our house. Its perfect for us. Very spacious with front and back yards. We planted a garden in the front and we have little bunnies that come into our back yard every day. The kids love them, of course! I jokingly say that we live in the country. I know we don't, but compared to the hustle and bustle of Seattle it feels like the country here. Our neighbors are really friendly and two of them are coming to church with us on Sunday!

Speaking of kids...
Sophie is doing great. Our family went with All People's Church on a mission trip to Tijuana, Mexico. Sophie loves telling people about Jesus. This picture is a picture of her with some of the kids she shared with who accepted Jesus! It was a blast spending five days with our new church on the trip. Jady & I both got a chance to minister to people and build relationships. Sophie and Tait got to spend their mornings in the kids service making new friends and learning more about who God is.
Tait is having a blast here also. There is a lot of dirt for him to play with, and that of course is wonderful to him. He is progressing by leaps and bounds with his speech. He is now saying "this" "that" and "more please". Thank you so much for praying! He starts speech therapy again this week, and we expect him to continue to improve.

Land Cruiser!!! For the past six years we have been a one car family. San Diego is too spread out for public transportation or Jady's scooter. So, we gave the scooter to a friend in Seattle and decided to believe God for another car. We had a very small amount of money for a car, but we were hopeful. God always provides, right??? Well He did! We were able to purchase a 1989 Toyota Landcruiser. (sorry I don't have a picture) Jady is beyond excited. It has been owned by the same family since they purchased it new. Kept in a garage & is in great shape. It is the perfect car and he LOVE LOVE LOVES it. This morning he threw his surfboard in the back and headed to the beach just before work. Ahh, California.

Thats it for this post! Have a great weekend!

  2. I love how happy all of you are in your new home and how much you love the people in both Seattle and the new friends you are busy meeting and already building relationships with in San Diego. I always look forward to what you write Elizabeth. Precious mommy-girl.
