The camp speaker was Ian Duguid who preached on the book of Ezekiel....one I've never studied
The church playing one clap...we also played mafia with the enitre church!
We mostly just enjoyed hanging out with the body of Christ
The kids had fun in the mud!
And he learned how to sit with daddy

"So whether you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" I Cor 10:31
I've been thinking about this verse alot lately because I have just realized how much of my day consists with eating and drinking. Noah gets fed every 3 hours, and naps for about an hour and a half inbetween. And I feed Noah 6 times a day. So I get 5 increments of an hour and a half where I need to use the time very wisely....otherwise I realize its time to feed Noah all over again! :) 3-4 of those increments of time are usually spent preparing/eating/ and cleaning up after breakfast lunch or dinner, or shopping for food. I love preparing meals for my family...and nursing Noah...don't get me wrong! But I just realized that a majority of our day revolves around food and drink....so how do we give glory to God in what seems so simple as putting food on the table, or feeding a newborn?? I've realized that I've viewed this time spent not as time that COULD give glory to God....but just as a part of life. But Paul says we CAN give glory to God while we eat and drink....and WHATEVER I do! It's not time waisted for the kingdom, but rather a time where I can praise Him for providing for us, and give Him glory by lifting my thoughts from the necessity of eating, to His tender mercies towards us in blessing us with the enjoyment of food! Like Noah I should long for the pure milk of the word....its a daily (well, almost hourly!) reminder.

It seems like every day he is learning something new. The last two days he's figured out how to grasp the little starfish on his swing to make the chair "sing" and make the lights flash. I was getting ready for church and all of sudden I heard his chair start to sing...and I thought Clint had pulled on the fish to make it go...but it was Noah!
So yesterday I was filling out an application to get a card to save money at my local pharmacy DisChem. On the form you have to fill out it asks you to circle what your current employment status is. As a mom I always dread these cause it never gives an option for "mom" :) But this form gave 4 options. #1 Employed. #2 Student. #3 Pensioner. #4 Home Executive.

Video of how Noah wakes up at 7am every morning laughing at his mobile. He sometimes coos and laughs at it for like 20 min! I tried to sneak up on him to catch him...I usually just stay in bed and enjoy the laughter through the monitor before getting up to nurse him :) Make sure you turn your speakers on!

You can't visit South Africa without going to Wimpy to get a burger!
We had a great time of fellowship with them...and they got to meet little Noah! Maybe he will be a mate for their daughter Olivia (who is one year!) If he likes older girls :)
We also showed them the house we are building...this is in the model home inside the kitchen. They are laying the foundations of our house this week! So exciting.
