February (what day, I'm not sure)- Edwin and I decide to pursue the IMB and look at doing mission work. This is just when we decided to start the application process. We weren't entirely sure that the timing was right, but God made that abundantly clear in His time.
March 21- Ella entered our worlds, making DeLaynie a big sister. I was a little unhappy about having a C-section, especially after pushing for 2 hours, but she is healthy and happy. What more can you ask for?
July 24- I start this earth-shattering blog. Edwin gave me a digital SLR camera (oooooo, ahhhh) for my birthday, so I thought that I could use this blog to show off my budding skills as a photographer. I'm not so sure about skills, but I certainly use this blog as a way of posting pictures of my beautiful subjects (a.k.a- daughters).
My main intention was to use it as a way to chronicle the missionary process. By this time, we were completely confident that we were meant to go overseas, though we were still unsure exactly how it was all going to play out.
November 7- After attending the conference for potential short-term missionaries, Edwin and I discovered an intense desire to head to Nicaragua to serve the people there. We've never been there, but the people of Nicaragua are already planted into our hearts.
