Flexibility is the name of the game

Hey guys! I’m hoping to do a few quick posts to get you up to speed on our life – like the fact that we’ve had a third kid that I’ve failed to document on this blog. But for now I’ll share a day that was a pretty good snapshot of our life right now. 

Sundays are often very busy for us as we travel to different churches to share about our ministry. This Sunday was no different and we were also dealing with sickness and cranky kiddos. Juggling ministry work with  three small people and naptimes, sickness,  etc can be tricky and exhausting sometimes and we are learning that it takes LOTS of flexibility. 

After a last minute change of plans to leave the sick kids with the grandparents, we made it to the church, shared our presentation and enjoyed a potluck lunch with the congregation. By the time we picked up the kiddos it was long past naptime and of course all three of them fell asleep in the car. 

And here’s where the flexibility comes in.

 Rather than whine about the undoubtedly ruined naptime when we got home, Marcos (who is much better at this whole spontaneity thing than me) decided to make the best of it. We let them all sleep in their car seats and just kept driving – an extra 30 minutes out to a place called Pops on historic Route 66 Oklahoma. Not only did the kids get a nap in, we all enjoyed a family dinner and some old-fashioned soda pop and the kids had a great time choosing from the 700+ kinds of soda they have. And this is exactly why I married this guy. 😉

And that’s pretty much life for us right now. Traveling, speaking, adjusting to life with three kiddos and squeezing in family time along the way. Flexibility, folks. 

Until next time! 

Our life in pictures 

I’ve been struggling with writing a post since we’ve been in Idaho because it feels like really “nothing” is happening but at the same time our life is totally different than it was a few weeks ago so I figured I should post an update. So there is no coherent theme to this blog post, just scrolling back through the camera roll on my phone and using those pics to hopefully give you a glimpse of what our life is like right now. And fair warning: there are a lot of pictures in this post! You’re welcome, grandparents. 🙂 Continue reading

Where we’ve been and where we’re going: an update

Wanted to post a quick update as to what we’ve been up to. First and foremost, THANK YOU to those who have prayed for us as we began this journey! There have already been numerous circumstances that Marcos and I have looked at each other and said, “people are praying for us”. It is just evident in the way the Lord is taking care of every detail along our path. Thank you for being faithful in your prayers! Continue reading
