A Day in the life of us.......

A typical school day starts at 6 a.m. with the kids getting up, eating breakfast, and getting school uniforms on. Kurt usually drives them to school since the school is right next to the office.

Last week was "Spirit Week." The school raised money and took clothing donations to help the many street children here in Davao.

Ben in Kindergarten class with his teacher, Mrs. Robinson. He is already reading some words!!!!

Kirsten at lunch with friends and a teacher. It was 'crazy hair day' of Spirit week. Kirsten has yellow, red, and blue in her hair!!!!

While the kids are at school from 7:30 - 2:30, Kurt is usually at the office working. He works from 7:30 - 5:30 or so.

Kurt at the office!

I spend some days at the office and some days at home running errands. I also take the majority of pictures which is why you don't usually see my face!!!!!:)

At 2:30 I pick up Kirsten and Ben and bring them home. Mikayla goes to her Daddy's office and works on homework until they come home for dinner around 5:30. 7th grade is tough with homework. She usually does more after dinner and also practices clarinet and piano, then goes to bed.

Playing with two young coconuts that had fallen in our yard!

We love getting packages. This is a toy that was sent to Ben for his birthday!

Kirsten hugging Daddy!

And of course, we take time to play with Bear and Taters.
