We have been super busy since we arrived in the Dominican. Randy started work the Monday after we got here and we have been busy trying to set up our home, and getting our hands wet in several different ministries. So, when the option of a day beach trip came up, we were really excited (we bought a truck this week so it was possible to go). The day at the beach was a much need time of R and R. It was so good to get away and relax after the craziness of the last few weeks. We went with some friends who are missionaries in the Santiago area, it was a great day. The waves where we went were pretty small so the kids were able to swim the water no problem. Gibson is our little fish in the water, he was floating in with his water wings right next to me most of the day. He is doing great at learning to swim. The girls made a friend named Brooke, who is an 18 year old missionary in Santiago. It was such a blessing to have Brooke there with us playing with the kids, because it made it so Randy and I were actually able to relax.
