Almost a month!

So I am just realizing that it has almost been a month since our last blog...I am definitely falling a little behind!  Life has continued to surprise us with its fast pace, but we have been enjoying it immensely.  Mid-September friends and family started arriving for my sister Stacy, and her (now) husband Nick's wedding.  Below is a picture of all the "Book" cousins that have kids so far.  Of course mine is still in utero, but we decided she still counts! 

My dad is quite excited about all of the boys he has since all of his daughters are now officially married.  For the first time ever the guys actually outnumber the girls in our family.  Below all of the guys (minus my brother-in-law Brian who was still in Florida at this point) are going out early in the morning to pick up bales of hay.  The weather has finally transitioned to cool, comfortable fall temps, but at this point it was still in the 100s!

Here is a pic of beautiful Stacy, the last of the Book brides, on her wedding day.  Katie, Stacy and I all have September anniversaries which are each three years apart accordingly.  Stacy and Nick's wedding was lovely, we all had a great time.

After all of the excitement time has seemed to come to a screeching halt, well maybe not halt but at least is moving at a very slow pace, as we await the arrival of our dauther and continue to raise support for Spain.  Right now we are only a week away from our due date, October 11.  However, first babies are often late, so there is no telling when this little one is going to make her grand entrance.

One of the greatest blessings for us has been that Kevin has been contracted to work for our mission, LAM, as a recruiter while we are raising support.  This provides us with a small income to help with the added baby expenses.  He has been contracted through the end of March, so April has become our new goal leave date for Spain.  It has also been amazing to watch little by little our financial support grow.  God continues to encourage us almost daily with your generosity, thank you so much!

We still have a good chunk of support to raise, however, so if you are interested in supporting us and haven't done so yet, now would be a great time!  Also, if you know of a church or small group who would be interested in hearing about our mission in Spain we would love to come visit you, so just drop us an e-mail:  Thanks for everything!
