Our week at Voice of the Martyrs

Getting into the groove of getting up at 6:30am each morning left us a little on the tired side. VERY proud of the kids though, especially Hannah, as she is not a morning person and in the past getting her out of bed to be anywhere early and on time has definitely been a trial.

Michelle wasn’t working so also came along. It was a WONDERFUL walk and... read more

Today it hit 32F so although still cold, warm enough for a bike ride. With a letter to mail, we all (including Hovis) headed out to cycle to the front entrance which is probably a mile from where we are camping. The sun was shining and it just felt good to be out... read more
