The Five of Us, Spring 2014

Another Miracle!!!

Woohooo! God is SOOO good! Today my missing bag was returned! Yay! I had forgotten my leather jacket was in there (for the return trip). Whew!

This morning Pea had a fever. A dose of Motrin knocked it out and she's been better ever since, but it sure scared this mama. You don't want your baby to be sick in Africa!

Mmmm. Dinner time! Another YAY! :)

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at xawilsons@hotmail.com. Much obliged, I'm sure.
