Botanical Gardens - Singapore

Today the "patient" got sick of sitting around the hotel. So we decided to take a short walk down the street to the Botanical Gardens.
Here are a few pictures of some of the different plant life in the gardens... And no mom, I have no idea what most of the plant/flowers are! I pretty much only know the orchids. :)

Really??? The poop pollutes the water??  Do they really not know what nature does???

Schlomer's EVERYWHERE!!!

For the last couple of days we had a mini, and I mean mini, Schlomer reunion. Amber and JoElyn flew from China and met us in Singapore for a couple days of fun! They also helped me out with the kids and became their tutors for their time here. I mean, you know, they had to earn their keep... jk ;). They were also great to have around to stay with the kids while I was running back an forth to the hospital with Chris.
Now they are on their way to Indonesia and we are stuck in Singapore while we wait for new visas. :)
Here are a few pictures from the last two days...

The Shoulder Is Repaired!

Yesterday papa Chris had surgery on his shoulder to repair his rotator cuff and a bone spur. Patient is doing well. He should be able to come home, to the hotel, today. We will probably leave Singapore next week if out passports are back in our possession by Thursday.
Have a great day!

Three Years

Three years ago we arrived in Papua. How fast these three years have gone by and how very blessed we have been!

You never know what plans God has for you in your life. So leave yourself open to all the possibilities.

Here's to whatever time we have left in Papua! xoxo

If anyone is wondering why our Internet connection is so slow, it's not because we have the "Gravel" plan! I am sure it has something to do with the second picture! Or not.... :)
