A Whole Year

I can’t believe we’ve been in America for a year.  Sometimes it seems like it’s been less time than that; sometimes it seems longer.  Grace is nearly finished with her year at school.  First grade has been wonderful for her.  She’s also gotten to experience some things that she never has at school before like American holidays and field day.

I have a working list of things we need to do before heading back to The Netherlands.  I have a separate list of things to buy to take with us.  We need to replace much of Grace’s clothes.  The problem is that we will need warmer clothes, and they’re not available.  Yesterday, when I was shopping, I found something on my list though – winter pajamas.  I was so excited and even more excited to see that they were only $2.  So, until we leave to go back, we keep on working and marking things off our list.

Thank you to all of you who are praying with us that we get back on time.  We now lack $840 in monthly support.  We can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
