Life in Singapore

Well, we are two weeks into the school year and things are going really well. We have a wonderful group of teachers and the students are adjusting in to new routines. Sam has volleyball and soccer practice to lead during the week and plays basketball and soccer with some adult guys. I am not leading any sport or after school activity this semester, but have taken up a new hobby of sleeping a lot! :)

I decided a week or so ago that the house did not have enough green in it, so I have started my very own Singaporean garden! Since we don't have a yard, pots around the house are the next best thing. So far I am growing: basil, mint, thyme, and chili peppers. If I can get these to live, maybe I will expand my garden more.

I have also added a few pictures of things that look common in Singapore, but may be unusual to people in other countries. The view from our bedroom window, laundry hanging out the window and a crowded subway (MRT) are things we see weekly.

Hope all is going well with you. We will get another picture of my growing belly uploaded soon! :)

16 Weeks

Well, we are four months into the pregnancy! : - )

For about the last week Noelle has been able to feel the baby move a little. She describes it like little bubbles popping in her stomach. I am not able to feel this and I am getting a little jealous.

But all in all we are just really excited about bringing this new one into our family. Our next appointment is in the first week of September. Please keep us in your prayers.

Sam for us

New Mathematical Concept

1+1=3 :)

It's true! The day before we left for the United States in June, we found out that Noelle was pregnant. We are currently 15 weeks and 5 days into this new adventure and we're reading lots of new-to-us books : - )

School starts on Tuesday the 17th of August and we are excited about the new school year and the new addition to our family. Please join us in praying for this new blessing.

This is a picture of Noelle on National Day (Singapore's National Day) August 9th...Ok, so apparently, the picture we took on national day is only on an application within the phone and cannot be transferred out...but we will keep you updated with other pictures coming soon.

Ok, until the other pictures arrive, here is the 15 1/2 week ultrasound picture
