Mr. (or Mrs.) Stick Insect :)

As I came out to the truck today this big fella was on the wing mirror. (Yes, he was upside down.) Not wanting to drive off and have him fall I found a long tool, let him walk on to it and then laid him on the plant area. He (or she) went off quickly, soon to be seen climbing the nearest tree.

How to get... read more

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. Most days we worked 8 hour days from 8 am to 5 pm with an hour’s lunch break. Due to us being camped a few minutes away... read more
