Update needed!

Wow! I realize that an update is way overdue! This summer class has kept me busy...as have other adventures.

A couple of weekends ago we went down to Houston to visit my parents and go to Spamalot.

It was a lot like the movie of Monty Python and the Holy Grail - basically irreverent about everything, with some very funny parts, some silly parts, and some obscene parts.
We had a great time with my parents and grandmother. Then we got to see Jesse and Melody's newborn baby, Ryleigh Ann. She is so sweet and they are so happy.

Then Sarah had more school, lots of reading, some work. Joshua worked long hours to make up for missing last Friday in order for us to go to...
MEXICO!
We went on a scouting trip with some other friends from our church to see if this town outside of Monterrey Mexico would be an opportunity for future mission trips. We left Thursday night and came back Sunday afternoon. It was a great trip! We got to speak Spanish again and hang out with Mexicans - who I love! This is Guillermo, the son of one of the pastors. He loved these little cats and carried them around everywhere - much to the cat's fear and trepidation.
Here are the ladies who went on the trip. The two girls with cowboy hats are daughters of a family we met down there. They are the "adopted" Mexican family of the man who took us down there. He has been taking trips down to this town for several years now and is excited that we might be interested in adopting the area.

So, as you can see, we've been busy. =) I'll try to post more thoughtful, reflective posts soon.
Until then, here is a slideshow to enjoy.
