I promise to have more regular pictures and updates of Raelyn. We’re getting our routine more streamlined these days, and I hope to devote more time to this site as a result. We miss you all!


Interesting posts to come… March 15, 2010

…but for now, there’s not much to report.  Keely is still pregnant and still beautiful.  My numerous injuries are mostly healed.

I’m in the last few rehearsals of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat right now, so maybe we’ll have some good pictures of my “amazing, colored coat.”   I can’t seem to escape this show — this will now be the 4th time over a 12 year period.  Crazy.  God must really want me to have these songs memorized before I get to heaven…

Many apologies for being absent here. Will remedy the situation soon with a picture of the ever-expanding baby belly 🙂



Posting at home!!! October 11, 2009

Well, we’re finally connected, no thanks to our ADSL provider. I decided to take matters into our own hands and try out a 3G internet service provided by one of the cell companies. So far we’re having decent results, though it’s obviously optimized for downstream (sometimes 2 Mb/s vs. 30 kb/s for upstream), which makes it difficult to do any video chatting. We’ll take what we can get at this point!

Once again, sorry for the lack of posting recently — I had my first bout of sickness this week (I’ve now thrown up here before Keely, which is saying something given her, um, condition). I missed a day and a half of work and that put the rest of week in turbo mode.

One happy thing to share is that we got to hear the baby’s heartbeat today!!! One of the women in our church group is a former OB nurse and has a portable Doppler fetal monitor; we tried a few weeks ago with no success, but today we heard it loud and clear! It was a pretty special moment, as I’m sure all those who’ve been in our shoes can attest.


Still no internet October 3, 2009

We’re working on it, but our internet is still out at home.  Thus we’re forced to post on short trips to school on the weekends.

Today I played in a staff vs. Varsity Girls’ Volleyball game.  Of course the staff won….It was really quite fun to play real volleyball again.  After that we went to a Bar-B-Que lunch to meet-and-greet the school board.  I have a picture of that, but it’s not with me.  I’ll post it on Monday, if I remember.

Outage September 3, 2009

Sorry for the lack of posts — our internet connection has been down at home. We’re working to get it restored, but these things take time (especially in Africa!).

When we’re back online, you’ll see the fruits of my labor after a trip to the hardware store — it may or may not involve hanging my hammock on our balcony….
