2013 In Review

This year was beautiful.  Restoration.  Healing.  Fun.  Growing closer to God.  Wallowing in creation time and again. Just wonderful, lovely, super fun chaos.

The girls came to visit Auntie Laura and Uncle Isaac over Spring Break.  The Houston Lifestock Show and Rodeo was a huge hit!

Isaac rode in his first MS 150 from Houston to Austin and did fantastic!

 My students raised over $13,000 for a clean water well for a community in Nepal.

 We soaked up as much of London as is possible in a 10 hour lay over on our way to Zambia.

We fell more deeply in love with our God and each other as we spent 3 weeks helping families stay together, shared ideas with teachers, and loved on friends in Zambia.  We also just were lazy in God's amazing creation in Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Namibia for a few days.  Um, yeah.  There are no words for all He's made.  It's just too much!

In August, the girls came back for another visit:

Isaac traded in his 20 year old car for a new-to-us car:

In September, Dad turned 65:
We went to an Aggie game:

 We celebrated with Living Water:

And we hosted a baby shower for these dear friends:

In November, the dynamic duo of K & L reunited for life!

And we made it to Arizona to visit with ACE about our work in Zambia with a side trip to the Grand Canyon.

Thank You, Lord, for revealing Yourself in amazing ways this year.  You've refined us and brought us to Your throne so often!
