Winter Weather, Allegedly

Being our 6th Winter in South Asia,

We were used to some super-cold nights and mornings,

Overcast skies, Jackets, Slippers, and Dreading Leaving the Bed in the Mornings.

Maybe we're just warmer-blooded in our old age, or maybe Global Warming is real.

Because we've had beautiful weather this "winter," 


Playing on rides at the new mall in town,




Exploring the foothills near our house,


And even having a few planned and unplanned encounters with the native populations.


Some mornings have been a little foggy, 


But most of our drives have been idyllic ventures. 


Yeah, Global Warming!!!

2017: A New, Slower Year

As can be seen in our lack of communication, and lack of Blog Updates, things were a little crazy the last 10 months of 2016.

But the New Year is here, a time for new starts!


The kids were asleep, but the adults all played games and drank coffee into the wee hours of New Years Eve.

Even James stayed up, which is a new start in itself!

(He went to sleep at around 15 minutes after midnight.)


And the year got started off right, wearing our nice new clothes to church on the 1st of January,


Then getting an unexpected package from our friends in Mississippi:


Sunflower Seeds, M&Ms, and new toys for the kids! 


Here is to a great year for all of you.
