Welcome to our blog!

It's been several weeks now since we left our home in Savannah, on our 11,000 mile journey* to live here in the city of Davao in the Philippines. We'd like to give you a glimpse of that journey before we begin to share a window into our lives here in our new home. We hope you'll enjoy your visit to our blog, and that you'll check back often for news and photos!
(*4,000 miles by car to Seattle, then almost 7,000 miles by plane from Seattle to Davao!)

May the 26th
With the capable help of Joe, Andrew and Clay, we moved the remainder of our household goods out of our home.

Friday, May 29th
The bittersweet day we left Savannah. We had stayed several days at the home of Joe and Mary, enjoying their incredibly gracious hospitality and flexibility while we finished cleaning our home to prepare it for the renters. They blessed us enormously.

May 30th-June 1st
We stayed with our dear friends, Hank and Jane, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. They took us out on the lake several times in their boat, and we all got to do some tubing! It was fantastic spending time with you guys!

The Grand Canyon. What an amazing opportunity to visit this place of beauty.

A dream come true for Lego-crazy Michael! A loving relative sent us all to Legoland for the day. We all had a great time!
