Sunday after church Mark, the baby and I went up to the airstrip to meet a truck bringing fuel. Some of the fuel comes all the way from the US before reaching Duala, Yaoundé and then us.
What does Mark do when he’s not flying? People are always curious to know the answer to that question. Here is another part of the job!
We were out hiking and Mark flew by!!! So fun!

Haddie fell asleep eating lunch.
Catching the last of the frogs
Our neighbors cat was desperately trying to get in our house! Hahahaha!
The kids were tossing the frisbee and it ended up in the neighbors planter. Look what they found when they went to retrieve it!
Never seen one like him before.
I know I post all the time about our little beasts. But we enjoy them so! We added two new ducks to our flock! They are great so far. Everyone is getting along well. They are named, Cocoa and Coffee. I believe they are about four months old. We have two males and two females now.
About once a year we get mushrooms under a tree just outside our front door. This year I cooked them up and we ate them with eggs. Yumm!
The kids all got new sunglasses! They are so cool.
Hadassah is especially cool!
