Late November we took a short trip down to the Poconos and stayed one night @ Kalahari. It’s a resort with a waterpark – and is really close to Great Wolf Lodge (which is another one that we have stayed @ in the past). They are about 4 ½ miles away from each other. It was a lot of fun to get some swimming and water time (Summer-like activities) – despite the time of year. Gracie and Dominick tried out the surfing and did surprisingly well! I was impressed with both their courage and skill! The picture of the three older kids is at one of the pastry shops at Kalahari.
The picture of Sophie is @ our church on Christmas eve. She had a great time on Christmas – even though she has been a little sick now for a few weeks. It is a lot of fun seeing her get all excited unwrapping presents and with all the festivities!
In October Kevin and I made a trip to southern California to meet with our business partners. It was hard to leave our families for the week – but was a very worthwhile & productive trip! We have been out there in the past – but it had been about 8 years, and we had never made the annual conference. The hospitality and respect they show us – not just while we were out there – but every single day in our interactions with them is, quite honestly, very humbling and a testament to the caliber of people we are very fortunate to call partners. And to think that we discovered them with just a random Internet search all those years ago….! Thank you Ken, Mary-Lynn and the whole crew out there! Our next visit will be much sooner than 8 years!
