The Day I Turned 29



This was last Friday, the day I became 1 year older. A special day! In the morning, we went to the Lae Golf Course to go for a walk and had a fantastic time. You have to understand that we don't have any parks in Lae. So the golf course was the closest thing--with open space, green grass and lots of trees--and shade---an absolute must as the very hot days of the dry season are upon us. Jonathan and Karlyn loved being there. I think sometimes they feel "cooped up" in our compound. We played hide and seek amongst the trees and played a silly game with some "muli" (orange-like fruit) that we found on the grass. We actually amused ourselves there for 2 hours! It was tough dodging the flying golf balls though! Just kidding, there were no golfers...
Then at night, Ian took me out for dinner at the Melanesian Hotel. Delicious!
Praise God for another birthday! May I follow Him this year...

I think I said 30 in your card, but of course I meant 29. Just getting you used to the idea...

Karlyn is walking! Jacoba will be excited to see that! Allie likes her flipflops, and Jonathan's t-shirt.
