Don't I look happy?
This is us feeding the monkeys Bananas. It was so cool, this was the best part of the park. We brought the bananas and they came right up to us and ate them.
This monkey took the banana right out of Jonah's hand. It was so cute, the monkey moved Jonah's hand closer to him, then took the banana from his palm.
We ended the day at the Pineapple Park. Where we took a golf cart tour that told us all about Pineapples plants. Then we snacked on lots of Pineapple flavored treats.

Ethan was playing at church and a wooden platform fell on him when he tried climbing up it. It landed right on his finger tip popping the nail up and bursting out the side of his finger. He barely cried!
At the ER, where they now recognize us, Ethan actually slept while the doctor stitched him up. Please pray for a quick recovery and please pray for Farah and me, we need it; keeping up with these three monkeys!
Last month Farah and I were invited to help chaperone a youth outing to the Forrest Adventure Park. The park is filled with zip lines and all sorts of skyward obstacles. Farah and I were in charge of watching two boys; Kanata and Noah. We had a tough time keeping up with them but had a blast. Farah had the camera all day and we didn't get any pics of her; sorry! We'll just have to go again some day and get some pics of Farah flying through the air. The view from the zip lines was breathtaking.
This is a picture of one of the boys we were in charge of; Kanata. He's enjoying his time zipping across a valley that's over 100 feet below. No sweat!!!
Me coming in for a nice smooth landing. There was only one time I can remember falling during the day. Farah on the other hand may have landed it once....come to think of it....no, she never did land one. Her bum was a bit sore aftering soaring through the air and hitting the landings a bit hard!

Matt invited us out to the flight line to be a part of what they call a "fini" flight. A "fini" flight is the last flight a pilot does before he PCS's (moves). The tradition is to meet him at the hangar and hose him down with water as well as spray him down with some champagne. This is the boys with Matt pulling in right behind them. They're trying their best to bottle up their excitment, ha ha ha. Actually it was really loud and Jonah didn't like the noise level.
Here's the whole family with Matt. Matt is holding the empty bottle he was sprayed down with. Normally the pilots family comes down to the flight line, but Matt's wife and three kids are all ready in the states, so Matt asked if we could attend instead. We were honored.
Here's Matt, Jonah, and myself. We will miss Matt and look forward to hearing of the goodness of the Lord in his life. Please pray for his whole family as they transition to life in the states.

Here is the cake the boys and I made.
Caleb with his spiderman gift and money.
He had an awesome day and was blessed. We can not believe he is 7. He has grown so much since we arrived in Okinawa. We pray he will continue to grow and know how much he is loved by the Lord and his family.
Caleb's first grade class did a special Mother's day Chapel. All the kids painted a picture of their mothers and read a poem they wrote their Moms. Caleb is reading his poem. He is standing next to his Teacher Miss. Benson. Here is Calebs:
Mom you are kind
Mommy you are funny
Makes me fell special
You are loving to me
They all did a great job and I was blessed. (Yes, it does appear I have a unibrow but Caleb told me he messed up on my eyebrows. They were not suppost to look like. I still love it, because I know how hard he worked on it.)

One of Jonah's birthday gifts was a Spiderman costume. Today Jonah was Spiderman and Caleb was Batman and they fought the bad guys (me Catwoman and Ethan Zor, we made that up). We had fun running around. Thought you would enjoy this photo's.
