2 more daughters

Well it's true- we are a family of 7 now. We are so sad that it will only be for 3 weeks. We are hosting 2 girls from China. We have loved spending time with the girls(Alaina & Ruby). Marley and Ellie have really gotten attached to them. Macie still has the shy factor going. We have really enjoyed getting to know them. The language barrier has made for some funny moments. Alaina is 14 and much more mature than Ruby. She knows English quite well. She has finally let down her guard and is very comfortable with us, but she has taken a liking to Marley and loves showing her some of her cool electronics. Ruby (AKA- Aaron) is 13 and just a sweet young lady. She is not confident with her ability with communicating in English, Alaina does most of the translation. We have taken them out to the berry fields, watched fire works, gone shopping, gone shopping, gone shopping, played on the beach, spent the day on the farm riding the rapids lol, BBQ's with many hot dogs, played at the pool, and so much more and we are only a week and a half into it. We can't wait to get to know the girls even more, but mostly to show God's love for them.
