A Few More Pictures

I'm getting a little behind in my posting...I think all of these pictures are from Wednesday.  We spent the day walking around the center and went to the aquarium.  It's not huge and fancy, but the girls LOVED it.


 They had a little area set up with for the kids...probably one of their favorite things about the aquarium.




 Missionaries kids are so good at going with the flow...

(The picture is a little blurry, but I LOVED his little smile.)

This is the longest we have been away from home and I must admit I am so anxious to get back.  Not only do I miss my own bed, routine (or something like it), regular home cooked meals (can you believe I'm already sick of Pizza Hut, Burger King, KFC and Subway....well, maybe not totally sick of them...), and I long to hear people speaking in Russian.  Even though Polish is similar in sound, it is still very strange to my ears.  When someone talks to me I am at a loss as to what to say and end up replying in mixed English/Russian.  AND we still have until next Friday!  It has been a nice vacation though, nights have been a little rough because of the bars surrounding us, and I have enjoyed visiting with the Glass family, the missionary family here in Poland.  It has been a year since we have seen another missionary family.  (We are kinda home bodies, so we don't travel unless we have to...besides, there is so much work to do that we never feel we can leave...a plus of a forced vacation.)  I have also enjoyed having more time to spend with my husband.  But even with all of that...I'm ready to be home.  This vacation has given me time to plan some things I'd like to accomplish -with the language, home, ministry...  I always go back renewed, energized and ready to work.

  1. I did not realize that yours was a forced vacation too. I feel for you. I was glad ours only last 4 days. So you are trying to get visas too. I will be praying for you as well.

  4. "Missionaries kids are so good at going with the flow"

    This is so very true! I often take it for granted until the masses wonder how our children will handle flying or travel. Actually, my children having grown up with this thrive on "going with the flow".

    I understand too that homesick feeling.

    First, all you want to do is leave and then all you want to do is go back. That's a huge part of the missionary heart.

  5. Jessi, Thankfully we have our visas now so we can relax the rest of the vacation. :) Yes...that is my little Sammy with our neighbor Baba Nora.

    Kim, Thank you. He has won my heart. :)

    @tenlittleinions...I can't wait to have 10 walking through, if the Lord blesses me. :) Here it is a sight to walk through with 3!
