Hi Diane,
Sounds like you guys are getting ready to pass the torch...What a great example you have been to our family.  Thank you 
Thank you also for setting up pen pals for my kids.  They are so excited to have friends in South Africa.  The past 2 months have been quite a blur, so I'm sorry we haven't been on top of our emails and correspondence.  Cole is studying communities in school and is going to share some of the info that he has learned about the South African culture and communities with his school class.

He is getting baptized this Saturday and is very excited! He is such a good boy, we are so proud of him in every way.  He is quite the defensive champ in flag football.  His coaches call him the "flag pulling machine" ;)  His first game is tomorrow.  He has 3, 2-hour practices per week. He is also playing on a comp team in soccer and is doing very well.  Has practice 2 times a week and a game once a week.  So he is super busy, but football is over the end of October. 
Soph is getting so tall! She grew 4 inches in the past year.  She is so smart and doing great in school.  Knows all of her letter/sounds and is starting to read. I am looking into an additional program for her this year, (since she is too young for kindergarten).  
Her birthday is Saturday and we are having a tea party at Gardner Village with the little girlies and their baby dolls.  She is SO excited, (well, so am I)  ;)  She is such a sweet girl, but still sassy!  She is in dance and gymnastics and is doing very well.  She is one beautiful girl! 
Lola is such a sweet fun baby girl.  Well, toddler!  She has a really fun personality and has the cutest giggle you have ever heard!  She loves Daddy soo much and wants him to put her to bed every night.  I think she is almost ready to be potty trained, she always tells me when she goes potty and takes off her own diaper (all of the time).  Arg! 
2 more months til our little baby girl! Can't wait for her to come!  Can't wait til you are both home, we miss you and love you!  The kids pray for you every night, (its pretty cute).
                                                           Love you both,

Thanks for your update on the grandkids!  We miss them so.  Can't wait to see how much they have grown.  I'm so glad we will be there to welcome the new little one.  We tried to call your parents after Michel's passing but got no answer.  Then Seth died and I did not have the heart to try again.  Love & Blessings
