We made it to Singapore. It's beautiful. I am having trouble posting so I am going to keep this post short in hopes that I can get it to load.

Today was a lot of fun. We went to the aquarium. The kids were able to pet sting rays, fish, snakes and a big lizard. It was pretty cool. We watched a monkey show and saw one of monkeys that will live by us. I am still a little confused of how monkeys fit into the whole aquarium thing but we will go with it??

We were also able to catch a dolphin show which was really neat. The dolphins were pink. Yes, I am being serious look it up. They were amazing. Brooklyn's highlight was finding a sea shell during the show. She was way more impressed with the shell than the dolphins. The sand is really interesting here. It is light brown almost the color of saw dust. It surprised me a bit. It is lovely. Well, I will do my best to post photos tomorrow. Talk to you all soon. Love, Kathi

Sumatra or Bust

We are so excited to begin this adventure. I can't believe the time has come for us to leave. It has been a tough week saying good bye to all our friends and family. We are going to miss you all very much. We love you and will post as soon as we make it to Singapore.

Eleven More Days

I can't believe in eleven days we will be leaving for Sumatra. We are so excited to be going on this amazing adventure. The bags are almost packed. The "To Do" list is slowly getting smaller. I have to admit we are a bit nervous too. The bombings in Jakarta did not help. It will be interesting to see what effect it has on the security at the airport. We will be making a short stop in Jakarta on our way to Sumatra.

I was reminded of the verse found in Romans 8:28 "And we know that for those who love God, that is, for those who are called according to his purpose, all things are working together for good." It brought me a lot of comfort knowing that our lives could not be in better hands.
