our family of three

So, let me start off by saying that I am horrible at this. I have started a million blogs and have never kept up with them. I’m not promising myself to write everyday, or even once a week, but I am going to try. I want to be able to look back on this one day and remember what life was like. So, here’s to making the most of each day and to sharing it with all of you.

This is our little family: Kennie, my husband… Me, Lizzy…& our sweet daughter Ezra Honour. We live in Nairobi, Kenya where we teach at an international private school through an organization called NICS. Last school year I taught elementary and middle school art and computers, but this year I will be staying at home with Ezra. My hope is that I will be able to use this time to serve my family as well as loving on the community around me- sharing Jesus in everything I do.

We have been stateside this summer so we could be close to family during/after the birth of Ezra. Yesterday, Kennie went back to Nairobi to prepare for the upcoming school year. We already miss him terribly, but will be following him there in just a few weeks.

I’m pretty much an emotional wreck… any other new moms feel this way sometimes? Who am I kidding… this is just normal Lizzy, ha. Leaving family behind in the states is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It’s especially hard now that Ezra is in the picture. So, you can pray for me that I would look for my satisfaction in Jesus because that’s the only place I will find it anyway.
