4TH OF JULY

Playing with sparklers. If you put your camera on Manual, you can set it so the shutter will stay open. I set it for 2 seconds. The kids had a blast making designs.
This is Sonel. He's blurry from all the movement, but it was still cool.
Hope made small circles, then big ones.
Hope making figure 8's.
Sonel making circles.


I can't believe we will be taking Sonel back in 3 days. I thought I could post his photo book, with all of the captions, but it will just direct you to an album of his photos. Most of the pictures in the album are ones on his blog anyway.
I have a few pics of our "cold" camping trip. The kids we being crazy in the camper.

We are having an open house for Sonel this Sunday. I'm going to take a picture of Sonel with everyone that comes. I will make an album for Sonel, (really quick) and also copies for everyone to hang on there fridge, so they can remember to pray for him.
I will probably post one more time before we leave. Please pray for Sonel's transition back to Haiti culture. He is so Amercianized now. He can't remember any Creole. Everyone says it will come back to him. It will still be hard for him. He is so smart. He is a whiz on the computer and he always asks to play games on my iPod. I only put games on it for the kids to play.
He's a kid, he will be resilient and bounce back. I just want him to keep smiling.

Your post brought tears to my eyes. I had so hoped Sonel would be able to stay. May God give him and you the strength and grace to face this transition and His peace that passes understanding!

I trust God with Sonel's life. It's just hard sometimes to not wonder what will happen. I need to not let my mind wonder...and just KNOW that God is in control. I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for praying for Sonel.
