Goodbye Woods Coffee. Goodbye outside runs and walks to the park. Goodbye grocery stores that have everything. Goodbye non-crazy driving conditions. Goodbye flushing toilet paper down the toilet. Goodbye delicious sushi. Goodbye purified tap water. Goodbye carpeted floors…I think I will miss you the most!


So as you can tell, we have to say our goodbyes once again, and very soon. We leave this Sunday, after being home in the states for almost 5 weeks now.  Our goodbyes are bittersweet, as they usually are. We have loved being home in Lynden, seeing family and friends and enjoying all the wonderful conveniences that there is a lack of in Honduras! And I get a gulp in my throat about leaving both our families again, and taking Asher away from all the people that he is just starting to get used to and love again. But having a life in Honduras means we have loved ones there that we must get back to.  We have a job to do and God has called Chad, Trina, and Asher to do it. So alas, off we go once again!

Time Spent

We spent a week camping with my family in Sun Lakes for my parents 40th anniversary. We had a great time relaxing and watching Asher play with his cousins. From there, we spent the weekend in Seattle for Chad’s 20th high school reunion. We enjoyed taking Asher to Gas Works park where he could just run around and be free! And Chad had a great time seeing some old friends. After that it was just time spent with family and friends and some much needed dates with my hubby!

Tacos, Tacos, and more Tacos!

The Taco Feed was a huge success and we couldn’t be more happy with how the night went. It was amazing to have almost 200 people come out and show their love and support to us. We are so thankful to my brother, Travis and his wife, Allison for coordinating the whole event, and to ALL who helped make that night possible. I wish I could personally write down all their names, but I will just say that our hearts are humbled and we are very grateful.

Out with Style

And to wrap up our time in Lynden, we are going out with style by attending the Northwest Washington Fair all week. Day one was a success with corn on the cob, corn dogs, kettle korn (do you see the theme?) and the Demolition Derby, which Asher loved. We hope to see some of you there, who we haven’t got to see yet. So if you see us, stop and say hi!
