One of the biggest things that was a blessing for us was the children's conference that the kids were involved in. There was a team of about 17 adults, from Bakersfield, CA, who raised their own support to come, buy crafts, curriculum and activities. They taught our kids while we were in meetings and different sessions, and just loved on them and cared for them. I know I was able to go to all the sessions because they were there.
Here is a picture of the new friends our family made while at the conference.

Life is staying in full swing since we've been home, not to mention all the laundry to catch up on. I've been trying to focus more on home-school time with Miriam and Zach. Dance has started back up for Miriam, Aaron is in the middle of the basketball season, in fact they have 5 games in the next 2 weeks. Two in Vienna and one in Bratislava, so there will be some traveling in the near future for the team. One of the nice changes in the European Union countries is there is no border control anymore. You can drive straight through border crossings and not have to wait in long lines to have your passport checked. Just an interesting tidbit.
I know I have so much that I want to tell you about the conference and the sessions and just our time in general, but I hope this gives you an idea of how refreshing it was for us and the kids. Our first night there the kids were bouncing on their beds around 10:00 at night telling us how great of a vacation this was, and how much they loved their fun classes. What an answer to prayer!
Please let us know how your New Year has begun and how we can be praying for you.
