let's go fly a kite...

Wilson got a kite for Easter, and was eager to try it out today. We live in the perfect state for kite-flying as it is ALWAYS windy here...or so it seems!I love how Walker is aimlessly running around!
Best $1.oo I ever spent!
helping big brother get that thing airborne again!

here's a little video, you can hear the wind. I think Wil did quite well for it being his first time!(well maybe he tried at the Beach, did he Mom?)

And I can't help but respond to a comment Destini left, about us still celebrating (Easter) rather than mourning our time apart. Thank you for the encouragement, a lot of that decision is based on a quote by Elisabeth Elliot that I adopted LONG before I knew Brad...and I remember sending that quote to him while he was in training. You see, Elisabeth and Jim Elliot had a long courtship that was recorded through their journals and letters to one another...
and during a "waiting time" one wrote to the other,
"Wherever you are, be ALL there."
And yes, that is how I choose to live. And by the power of the Holy Spirit in me, I am able to!
Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait in hope."
Lamentations 3:22-24


  1. AMEN! Great words to live by! You are a great example to many. May you continue to be blessed for your faithfulness and diligence!

  2. What great kite flying pictures! It's windy enough here to fly a kite today, but it's also about 30 degrees and snowing/raining. Yuck.

    Send me an email, and I will email you Ben & Tracy's email address back. I thought I had your email address, but I can't find it.


  3. Keep the faith, sister. Your post was so encouraging.
    Much love to you and your kite flying sweethearts!

  4. What great inspiration..."Wherever you are, be ALL there."
