On Saturday morning, we woke up, had breakfast, and continued our journey to Sherbrooke, Quebec. Micah had a fever and wasn't feeling well. Daniel had ran out and got him some Tylenol, but his fever kept coming back. We arrived in Sherbrooke about 6 pm. OUR FINAL DESTINATION! We stayed with the Dallaire family. We met them at the small church we attended while learning French last year. They are sooooo sweet! They have 2 daughters: Lydia, who is almost 3 and Ann-Marie, who is in kindergarten. Micah had a BLAST needless to say, playing his brains out. We too enjoyed our "adult time". It was so nice to just be able to sit back and talk! This family loves the Lord and are missionaries in their neighborhood and city. They are truly trusting the Lord for opportunities to reach out to those around them and tell them about Christ. We were so blessed to have had this time together with them....to recharge our batteries. Jennifer was an amazing hostess. We were sad to go, but we expect to see them one day in GUINEA!! :) And who knows...one day we might all be RELATED! HA!
What a trip! First we stopped in Ohio to see Stef.'s aunt and uncle. We spent 2 nights there. The Lord opened up the opportunity to speak at a chapel service at Bethlehem Christian Academy where "Aunt June" works. It was amazing! The kids loved seeing pictures of Guinean kids and hearing about what daily life looks like over there. We thank God for the opportunity to see June and Bill one last time before heading to the field!
THEN...it was off to Sherbrooke, Quebec. But first we made a QUICK stop at Niagara Falls! It was really, really quick because we didn't want to pay $6 to park and walk all the way down to the viewing area. Plus, it was sprinkling rain....and Elijah was tired. So, we jumped out quick and had someone snap a picture. It's not the best...but it serves its purpose. You can see the falls behind us! Isn't God's creation amazing! After this, we stopped outside of Toronto for the night.

Micah is growing up fast and making us laugh every day! He usually is serious and inquisitive, but he does have his silly moments. He loves preschool! He attends Bright Meadow Christian 3 days a week, 3 hours a day. Let's just say he takes great naps on those 3 days!
No...this face wasn't made on purpose. Elijah is teething! He's been complaining for about a month. So, he started when he was only 3 MONTHS!! That's seems way early to me. Poor guy...he's giving himself hickies on his arms from trying to scratch his gums. He's having a hard time napping during the day too because of his gums. Oh well...that's a baby for ya! He sure is cute though...isn't he?!
