Time to Sing!, originally uploaded by russandval.

Team life has changed a lot in the past year. We've seen the birth of three babies and one more is due to show up in the next month. Once Travis and Alicia's new one is born, we'll have five kids under the age of two. We've decided to start getting the little ones together to play on a semi-regular basis.

Today we took advantage of our new building. English classes were going on downstairs, the men were having their leadership meeting in the office and we met in the kid's classroom. (That still left rooms empty!) It's so nice to have so much USABLE space!

We read books, sang songs, had dance time and did our best to keep the kids from killing each other. Jackson was a little overwhelmed but I figure he needs to get the hang of being around other kids before we go on furlough. (Can I just say that I'm looking forward to visiting churches with nurseries?)

Speaking of, our tickets are now set. We'll be leaving Salvador on September 8 and returning November 11. The countdown has begun!

Great idea to socialize the kids! Nurseries may be far into the future, but as your church continues to grow, Bible class may not be. Either way, it is good for the kids to be with other kids. :)

What a sweet picture of moms and tots!

Jackson has a space reserved for him in Cradle Roll when you're at home in Winnipeg.
