Happy Birthday, Risktaker!
I'm so proud of what you have become today. After many years of faithfully working with grade schoolers and pastoring the church in a small village, you came to a point where you have to leave your comfort zone to obey what you believe God is calling you to do. It would have been easier for you to remain and enjoy your promotions at school but you desire to obey and grow, even if it demands you to sacrifice your ego of being called a "starter" after what you have already achieved in life. I am so proud that you are able to take a seemingly very risky decision. You're unafraid of where that road you are traveling in now will take you and your family and completely trusting God to bring you to the place where He wants you all to be. God bless your heart! May He continue to give you stamina to finish what you have started right now. May He continue to provide you and your family a safety refuge from the unnecessary cares of life and may He sustain all of you with His grace and joy.
Muchas muchas Amor,
Dines (for Paul and Belle flower too)

This morning, we walked to a kid's apparel store near our house, and as expected she had her bad temper. The store has a small play area, so I put her there. She was playing and smiling for a minute and after that she remembered how she hates shopping, so off she cried and screamed again. Oh, well, I can only hope things will change with her feelings about shopping in the near future or else I'll be forever a lone-shopper in our family.

We finally got our little Belle an inflatable swimming pool last Friday. She loves it to pieces. But before she could enjoy it, her "poised" mommy had to blow that thingy from her own lungs. How come? Our air pump refused to serve me. Blowing it was like climbing Mt. Everest forever. My cheeks inflated long before that thing would look like that. I was blowing air into it for about 2 very long hours. Not to mention the sound I made while doing it... it's disgusting and Izzy insisted her idea saying, "Mommy tooted!" I explained to her that it wasn't what she thought it was. Oh, boy. But seeing my little girl so happy swimming and playing in the water pays all of the hard work I put into it.
Picnic under the tree by the river.
The Guest Center at Fort Snelling.
The Minnesota River in the middle of the park.
On our way back to where we parked our car, the rain poured hard on us. Izzy was crying because she didn't want to get wet. It was fun for me though... biking in the rain is my idea of fun.

The Restaurant where we had lunch on my husband's first day in Tandag. We go to this one every time we eat out, especially with my whole family.
Tandag City Park- I like to bring my nieces here for our afternoon play and ice cream.
More photos of our place...
