My Trip to Peru

Hey just wanted to update everyone on what I have been up to. I went to Peru with the Southern Cross Humanitarian group in June. We went to Peru to help out with an orphanage called "El Bichito" or little bug. We helped to build the second level of the orphanage and I was able to give all the kids dental exams. It was a really great experience. So I have some pictures to share.

These are two of the girls at the orphanage. They don't get their picture taken very often so they loved us to photograph them and then show them. We did that a billion times.

This little girl is named Diana and she was one of the youngest at the orphanage. She kept laughing at us and calling us something in spanish and none of us knew what she was saying so we would just laugh with her. Our interpreter told us later that she had been calling us all Pinochio because we had big noses. It was pretty funny!

We had a doctor and a nurse there giving physicals to all the kids.

Then of course this is me giving dental exams. We didn't have any supplies. I brought my own gloves and we were using a chair from the kitchen for them to sit on. I was kneeling on the ground and looking in their mouths with a flashlight.
We were the first group to visit them so they were pretty shy but by the end of the fourth day they were hugging us and holding our hands and playing games with us. It was so awesome. I am totally going to try to do something like this every year.

Baby Davies

Well, most probably know this already, but Kenz and I are going to join many of you in the world of parenthood. Kenz is about 15 weeks (due around February 10th), and hopefully next appointment we'll be able to see what we're having if we're lucky!

Here's a quick picture:

There's more information and pictures on our blog, too. Check it out.

Remember Us?

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! We had fun visiting with Emily and her family at the fireworks. Can you guess which is Emily's and which is mine? (HA!)
Maddie and Allie are are about four months apart.
Detmer and Ashlyn are also about four months apart!
This is the best we could get all of them to pose for a picture. Yeah, they weren't having it!

Emily's brother-in-law got married when Jenni had her party, which is why Emily and I couldn't make it. We look forward to getting together with everyone in August! Emily is excited to come and she promises she is going to post on here soon:)

It's fun to read all the updates. I can never comment on here, and in fact I'm surprised I got this post to work. I tried once before and my pictures were turning out as text??? I guess I should speak too soon, I haven't actually hit "publish post" yet! Anyway, I also enjoy reading all the family blogs and keeping updated on everyone. I really think everyone should start one!

I need to update my picture on the side to include my new baby. Okay, not so new anymore. She is seven months now! I'll have to do that soon.
I'll be watching for details on the August get together!
