The month of May in pictures of Wesley

For some reason my blog hasn't been allowing me to post for almost two months, so thanks for your patience.  It's been a major two months, with lots of travel and fun stuff.  I'm writing our May support letter now, so if you're on our mailing list, watch out for that in about two weeks.  In the meantime, here's a recap focusing on what Wesley's been doing:

I made Innocent some pajamas for school, because he's been "sleeping cold" and he's never had pajamas before.  He insisted Wesley needed some pajama pants also.  They're pretty cute brothers!

 Wesley and I met up with Edwin Angote in Kenya and together we all went up to Amazing Grace in northern Uganda.  I haven't been able to get up to Amazing Grace since 2010, so it was great to see those kids, and if you look closely you can see the farmer's tan Wesley got in the hot sun that close to the equator.
 Wesley became best friends with Sarah Blakeman on that trip.  We really enjoyed the hospitality of the Lahash Servant Team - Clark, Cathy and Sarah Blakeman and Rick and Haley Baker.
 After returning from Uganda, we were home for about a week, and Wesley demonstrated his new love of dirt.  Such a boy!

Fred had a seminar in Mwanza, Tanzania, so Wesley and I went along to have some family time in nice hotels and restaurants.  Wesley enjoyed playing in the empty dressers.
 Our friends Amani and Shannon took us to a great swimming pool in Mwanza, and another family let Wesley use their floaty toy.  He looooved it!
 Then Wesley and I went on to Shinyanga for the Pastoral Leadership Seminar that I had mentioned on this blog before.  Thanks to a handful of supporters we were able to raise enough to get 13 pastors together for three days and it was great.  Wesley did not much enjoy the long days of meetings, but he suffered through!

 Fred was unexpectedly called back to Mwanza just after our pastors seminar ended, so Wesley and I met him back in Mwanza, where we went to great hotel for dinner one night.  Wesley made friends with another little boy, but Fred had to keep an eye out.  Wesley apparently likes pushing other kids.

Finally we got back home on June 6th and just parked for a while.  We've been relaxing and recovering from all that travel.  As you can see, Wesley enjoys a little (almost) naked lounging in his favorite chair.

So that was most of the past month for us!  Hopefully we'll be able to get back onto a more consistent posting schedule soon, but thanks for sticking with us.
