Pretty crazy that we are down to our last 7 weeks in Kuwait! And in between the moving preparations, we both have individual work travel planned, so the time will go by very quickly. This week Nathan and I took a little time off work to begin the sorting and purging process. We got through most of our house, sold some stuff at a yard sale this weekend, and donated the rest. Next step will be organizing what is going home with us for the summer and what will go to Jordan. There will be a bit to do in the coming weeks, but all in all, I think we are off to a good start, thanks to my wonderful partner :).
We are also taking the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the things we love about Kuwait. It is getting hotter, but it has been very dusty the last few weeks, which makes the temperatures cooler, or at least it seems. Today we went to a new souq, then we went to a park downtown to let the boys ride scooters and play, and we had a picnic.

Nathan got home the other day after being gone for the last month. We are all really happy he is home, and there is a lot of 'daddy, daddy' being said in our house these days :). We have enjoyed spending time together and doing fun things as a family, since we are down to our last 2 months before we depart.
Yesterday evening we went back to the Dino Park with our good friends. In the evening all the rides are open, and it was pretty much an amusement park for kids, you almost don't even notice all the dinosaurs. It was a really fun evening for everyone, and the highlight for Nathan and I was seeing how much fun the boys had on all the rides. They have never been on fast rides before, and we didn't really know what to expect. Let's just say, they loved them! Here's to our first time roller coaster riders...
I took a lot of videos, and the program I use to convert the format will combine lots of videos together. So, here's a reverse order longer video of the fun had by all. Enjoy!

We had a special weekend celebrating both Easter and Passover with friends. On Friday, our church had a wonderful Easter worship service and afterwards a we had a pot-luck lunch and fellowship with our friends.
I am humbled and so grateful for Jesus's sacrifice and gift of eternal life. And especially grateful for Nathan and these two sweet little boys.
After the Seder, the kids searched for the Afikomen that was hidden earlier that evening. After about 15 minutes of searching, it was found and a reward was given
I am so thankful for our friends that have truly become our family away from home. Happy Easter and Passover to all of our family and friends around the world!

Today there was an Easter Party at the Embassy. The boys have been excited all week to go on an egg hunt and see the Easter bunny. The party was at the Ambassador's house. They had a bouncy castle, face painting, an egg hunt, magic show, and game show. It was a full day and lots of fun.
Tes came with us and had a fun time with the boys
There were lots of kids and lots of eggs to find.
Benjamin was the cutest puppy dog I've ever seen!
Caleb loves our friends' twins.
