This school has been incredible already. Brandon & I LOVE LOVE LOVE DTS so much & we are so thankful for God’s faithfulness already with this school. 17 students (& 4 BLS students alongside them) are just beginning their 3rd week of the school.
They came from near and far. We have 3 international students, from Switzerland, Germany, & Finland. But we also have 6 from here in California. They have all chosen a track to focus their creative time in: photography, visual arts, performing arts, music, or surfing. Things are just getting started in those tracks, with the first art show this Thursday night at Farmer’s Market. I am working with the photography students, so they will be showcasing their photos on Thursday night. Brandon is working with the music students, and I am not sure what they have planned. I am also helping guide the performing arts students, and they are currently putting together a flash mob, 2 dramas, and then later on, another dance.
Outreach teams have been formed, 3 teams, led by our 3 wonderful DTS staffers. 2 will travel to Kenya, & 1 to South America. Then all 3 teams will journey to Nicaragua & finish their outreach time there. Brandon & I are hoping to join them all at some point… likely we will be able to make it to Kenya and then Nicaragua… but we’ll have to see how little miss Capri’s entrance to our arms all works out.
Thank you so much for all your prayers as we were preparing for this DTS… they have been felt!
This pregnancy has flown by for us. Capri is due in less than 2 months, but we have a hunch she’ll arrive a little before. I think God has protected us from worry & anxiety of becoming parents of 2 children by distracting us with everything else going on in life. I rarely have a moment to take it all in. Shiloh is getting more and more excited about ‘baby sissy’. She has no idea how much her world is about to change! Hahaha, but she is excited about the fact that when ‘Mommy goes to the doctor to take baby sissy out’ she ‘gets to go play with her friends at their house’. 🙂 She’s been enthralled with the few things labeled “Baby Sissy” in her room (ie, the crib, changing pad, tiny baby clothes, car seat, etc).
I have been more tired than before, but still feeling a whole lot better this pregnancy than with Shiloh’s. I am eager to stop expanding. But I know my belly has a whole lot more growing to do. Capri is supposedly about 3lbs now, and so she will at least double in size before she’s born. Crazy. We can’t wait to see her and what she looks like!
Thats about all for now, I’ll leave you with some photos…
