It's true... there is another Barnhoorn baby on the way. Some of you were astute enough to catch the hint. Good detective work! The baby is due in December, around the 12th, which puts it smack dab in the middle of exams and papers and moving!! Good timing! It means that we likely won't be heading back to Ontario until January to give us some time to pack. We are quite excited about the new baby. Stephen is, as well. He often asks if he can give the baby a kiss.
We are now in Ontario helping the Drost side of the family get ready for Theresa and Joe's wedding on Saturday. We're hoping for nice weather because they are planning to have the ceremony outside. It means a lot of work around the house trying to get it looking pretty for all the guests. We will be spending several weeks in this area talking to people and trying to get our support level up. Neither of us have been looking forward to doing this, but it's actually starting to grow on me. I get to talk to people about my passion.
Around the middle of July we'll go to the Port Perry area to visit the other side of the family and talk to more people. We'll also go to the wedding of a friend and then at the end of August we have another wedding, this time a wedding on the Barnhoorn side.
That's how we're doing. Sorry about the lack of updates, but we've been traveling and dial-up internet is not something we're used to. It's really slow. Anyway, hope to see most of you in person at some point during the summer!

Happy Birthday and such things

I just want to say a belated happy birthday to my wonderful husband. He is busy playing his present, Age of Empires III. I think he likes his gift. We spent his birthday at "school" and haven't done much to celebrate it. They did put a candle on a cake and sing happy birthday for him that night at dinner!

We are in the middle of COPE, a Wycliffe Orientation Course being held at CanIL. We drop Stephen off at the Family Room by 7:30 am! That means we are up and at 'em by 6:30am. That is much earlier than our usual 7:30am. The days are long but are filled with sessions, testimonies, food, and fellowship. It has been very informative, for the most part, yet very tiring because of the long days, we usually get home around 8pm!

We were driving home tonight and we commented that Stephen's language abilities have drastically improved this past week. He is saying new words and putting more words together to form fragments/sentences! In no time he'll be speaking real English and not just Stephenish/toddlerease!!
