English Church Service 2015

English Church Service 2015

On June 28th we had our annual English church service at the Christusgemeinde.  I requested that we pray that 10 Let's Start Talking readers attend the service.  God did not answer that prayer. He did provide 10 guests though!  That is very successful.  There have been years where no guests or readers attend. We are going through The Story right now and I preached on the younger part of David's life.  I talked about how David had a heart after God's and how we should too. It was Matt and Michael's (our first team) last day with us and Denise and Marrisa (our second team) first day. We...

Baby #2: Baby Belly Pics

Baby #2: Baby Belly Pics

Well, there must be something in the water in America because again we got pregnant while on furlough. At the beginning of the pregnancy I struggled with some nausea, but that didn't last long. This pregnancy is different than last time. I feel like I just eat and eat and eat a ton. Maybe I can't remember too well since last time, but I think this baby is more active or pushes harder than Max did. Sometimes I feel like the baby is going to push it's way right out of my belly. I have noticed that with this pregnancy I have had more pain especially here at the end of the pregnancy. I notice...

Baby #2: Ultrasound Pics

Baby #2: Ultrasound Pics

Just like last time, we didn't want to know if this baby was going to be a boy or girl. We have a picture of just an arm because this kiddo was not willing to show it's face. But this last time was perfect - we got 2 good pics! We have been having fun with Max, always asking him if he wants a brother or sister, boy or girl, or Alex or Olivia. It has been funny to see what he would always say, but he would always pick the feminine option no matter how much we tried to trick him. But at the beginning of the pregnancy, he would always say cookie. While at the doctor, Daddy would explain the different...

Max’s First Visit to a Zoo!

Max’s First Visit to a Zoo!

We took Max for his first zoo visit to the OKC Zoo for his birthday.  We walked 4 miles over 4 hours, seriously, I kept track with my Timex. Max liked walking in the Bamboo, riding the train and playing on the playground. We walked around a corner and saw a tiger standing 2 feet away from us.  Thank God there was a chain-link fence separating us. The most interesting part was witnessing a silverback gorilla chasing/swatting a gorilla mother and her baby.  It was right in front of us and I think our eyes about popped out because it caught us off guard and they were really loud.  A zoo employ...

Max Visiting The Knapp Family

Max Visiting The Knapp Family

Last week Max got to meet his Grandpa and Grandma Knapp in person, not Skype.  We arrived at their house after being up for nearly 24 hours.  Max a nap on the long flight but it didn't last long. Max also had a good time pestering his uncle Nathaniel.  But Nathaniel won Max's heart over with enough ice cream to feed a village! Make sure to click on a photo to view the gallery!
