Cam is adjusting to his new job and finding some of the quirks in the school system here normal now. He wasn't so sure about it at first and was frustrated by the lack of structure. The kids love their school and teachers. Avery joined Rainbow girls which is like girl scouts at our local church here and is loving it. Ian is in a soccer club and plays once a week. Elise and I have checked out a few "mums and tots" groups. Elise loves to get out and enjoys "new" toys. They have toast and tea at the mom's groups and sing songs which are new to us but we are learning. I have met a few other moms and we have gone to a church close by and continue to meet new people whom we have found very friendly. We are headed to London this weekend for a reception at the US Embassy for the exchange teachers. I can't wait to post our adventures there.

An Update On Our Life Here...
Hellos and Goodbyes. We spent a incredible week with Cam's parents. The kids were so excited to share the little of Ireland that we have come to know including our exciting walks to school. The weather constantly keeps you guessing about what attire would be best. One afternoon we left with light jackets on and came home drenched head to toe! It was such a huge blessing for me to share these moments with my in-laws. Cam and I were hugely encouraged by his parents to keep on through the wonders of exploring a new culture even though at times we feel so tired and homesick. So, when last Friday came to say good-bye it was one of the roughest good-byes! It is hard to let someone go who brings such encouragment and security but I know God is growing us in huge ways through our letting gos.
