Happy Wednesday!

I think this morning of the kids who were not looking forward to summer break.
Kids who really needed the breakfast and lunch at the school, the socializing with friends, the care of their teacher maybe the support services of the counselor. These kids are really on my mind.
Our community does some important things to help ease the burden for these kids. Several locations offer free lunches for children under 18. And we can pray that people come in their path that can help ease some of the hardships of summer.
I also feel thankful that for many summer break is a needed break and includes more time at home, more time with family, more free time...

This blog would be fake to only highlight the "good times" There are many, but they are not all good. These last three days have been challenging and frustrating and I have worked very hard to smile and to push through.

Blessed be... the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 -----------I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Matthew 28:20

Merit is off to camp at Eastern! Football camp! He will have a blast I think. I am praying he works hard, stays safe and is an encourager to those around him!

Willem is up for tricky jobs and challenges on the home front! He even tried to help tame our wild foster kitties. These are the trickiest kitties we have had so far! But they always go in their litter box AND once in our arms are sweet (when we catch them!!)

Willem has organizational skills that I lack. Sometimes he will help me with a room or cupboard. It is wonderful. Willem likes playing Fortnite when he has downtime.

Hazel had a blast at her friend Alli's yesterday! And then once at the baseball game, she had Sophia to giggle with! ---There is some horse dreaming over here too...

Oren LOVES having these big kids home. His imagination is my favorite.

We would love to have your young kids in their late teens to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. I am sure they will have a life changing experience.
