~Go Fly a Kite....Okay, that's what we'll do!~

August is the month to fly kites here in Bogota...it's VERY WINDY! Phillip bought our kids a nice kite, but we haven't had to many chances to fly it, and our kids have been DYING to do it. It seems that every Sunday on the way to church we see HUNDREDS of kites being flown in the parks that we pass, but on Monday our family day it's always RAINY OR NOT WINDY! This past Monday, we woke up to it pouring the rain AGAIN! So, Phillip and I prayed HARD that God would help the rain to quit, and we told God that on Sunday we had honored Him and had gone to church 3 times on HIS DAY and didn't fly the kite, and now on Monday we wanted our kids to see that God cared for them, and their desires! God helped it to quit raining and the sun came out and we went to an open field, flew the kite, and we had a blast! I LOVE IT THAT OUR GOD CARES ABOUT US!~Up, Up, and AWAY!~~Watch out for "MR. AIRPLANE", who is flying quite low!~~Kimberly, Sarah, and Noah each took a turn to hold the kite...and when Noah was holding it I said to Phillip, "You don't think he could let go...?" And right then he did let go and the kite blew away...but THANK THE LORD the string caught on the fence near by, so we rescued it.~ ~While Kimberly and Daddy were flying the kite...Sarah and Noah were playing in the tall grasses, picking berries and flowers for their food...~~And they made themselves a little "home"! When it came time to go, they were very sad to leave their home!~~Before we left, Kimberly wanted to race Mommy! I'm glad to say, that I can still beat her, even though she is a fast runner. You see, I have ALWAYS LOVED TO RACE AND TO HIDE FROM PEOPLE! I still have FUN hiding from my kids quite often. When I was young, I used to have lots of races with my 2 older brothers, Lincoln and Andrew. One time when Andrew and I were returning home from going to the store together, we got out of his truck I said, "Do you want to race?" And he said, "SURE!" So, we took off running with Andrew carrying a gallon of milk, and of course, since he's nearly 9 years older than me, HE WON! BUT I BEING A LITTLE GIRL SAID, "ANDREW, IT'S NOT FAIR, YOU HAD THE GALLON OF MILK!" =D Our friend, Bro. Jowers told us to switch to using "FireFox" instead of Internet Explorer, and our computer is like new again! PRAISE GOD!
Lord willing, tomorrow, our dear friend, Bro. Edwards from our church in AZ (Where Phillip pastored for 5 years) is coming to visit us here in Bogota for 3 weeks or so. We're excited to have "Grandpa" Edwards come! He is 83 almost 84, SO PLEASE PRAY THAT HE HAS A SAFE TRIP AND A SAFE TIME HERE, WITH NO PROBLEMS! =)
Both of my Grandmothers are doing some better, but still need prayer, and so do my parents. THANKS!

The kite-flying looks like fun! There's really not enough steady wind here in Salamanca to do much with kites...now where we lived in Texas: The Rio Grande Valley - THAT'S a great place to fly kites, but better hold on!

Heather,
Love reading your posts. Sometimes I am just too lazy to comment. It is so good to keep up with your lives. Blogs keep us from being strangers to each other when we are far apart. Love, Aunt Linda

I've been without internet for a little while so I've needed to get caught up. The kite flying looked like so much fun! I loved Noah's room too! Glad to have caught up with you again!
