Basketball and extended family

God continues to provide the extra grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins that our hearts so desperately miss while we are far away from our "real" extended family.

For the next few weeks, we get to enjoy another auntie who comes to the Solomons from time to time.

She is a brilliant translator and consultant, but she used to teach Physical Education, and while she is here, she is sharing her knowledge and skills with the SITAG kids.

So every morning, our kids get a mini basketball clinic.

Their adopted auntie could be spending her time on "important" things like preparing for her upcoming checking session on 1 & 2 Corinthians.  But she is choosing to take a few minutes each day and invest in eight children instead.  Wow, what a great example for all of us!

This does look like a blast! You can never have too many aunties like this one!

A lump in my throat as I thank this auntie for doing what I cannot from so many miles away. Please thank all the people who love on my nieces and nephew!
