Uncle David and Aunt Sandra

 While we were between homes (homeless) we stayed with a couple that became very dear to us! Uncle David and Aunt Sandra are so special and we are very thankful that they opened up their home to us.
 The kids really enjoyed getting to "live" there. Uncle David and Aunt Sandra have two dogs, lots of fruit trees and vines, a garden, and some cows.
 The kids loved exploring and experiencing new things. Uncle David has some baby calves that he is bottle feeding. The kids were able to learn how to mix up the milk and then give the calves their bottles. They LOVED it! Isaac was even up early to go with Uncle David to that early morning feeding.
 Here is Joanna showing off a grape that she picked. Of coarse it is not even ready for picking but she thought she had done something good. :) They have lots of blackberries and Aunt Sandra made a yummy blackberry cobbler and blackberry jam!!
 Aunt Sandra's mother lives with them and we fell in love with her too! She is so sweet. Elijah said, "She reminds me of Nanny".
 They have a nice back porch and a great yard for the kids to run and play! Here are pictures of Elijah and Sarah on the back porch. Elijah liked seeing how high he could swing.
 Sarah pretending she is asleep. I am amazed that we felt at home with someone that isn't really family. They were so good to us and made us feel like we were part of their family.
Now that we are in our new home we don't get to see them as much, but how sweet it is when we do see them! These are memories I pray that in years to come our family can talk about and remember all that God has done for us!

*These were pictures I took while we were at their home. I meant to get a picture of them and never did. That is on my to do list! :)
