Wow!! What a first week it has been. The weather has been absolutely marvelous. I feel like it's God's little gift to me since I was so apprehensive about coming to a place much colder than what I am used to. The sun is so warm and comforting. We actually got in our swimsuits today. :-)
Today is Father's Day and we spent it at the beach. All three of us saw our first whale together. What a sight! It was pretty far off in the distance but you could see it blow water and then it's huge tail would surface and come back down. Now, we just have to make sure Michaelina sees a puffin. That is the one animal that has been at the top of her list to see since before we actually moved here.
Monday I start work as the lead teacher in the 3-4yr old Sonshine Christian Daycare. I will have anywhere from 12-16 students plus 2 helpers. Josh is a helper in the 4-5 year old classroom. We work the same hours which is nice. Michaelina has been enjoying camp. The mission does a summer camp for ages 6-10. Every week there is a different theme. I believe last week was pirate themed. Michaelina hasn't missed a beat. She is right there in the middle of everything going on. Especially since we are the house parents for the college kids that are working the camps. They all love her and she loves them.
Please continue to pray for us. It's hard to be away from our families and friends. I would have loved to see my Dad today, but I did get to talk to him and wish him a Happy Father's Day.
We love and miss you all!!!
