Silver Dollar City

Last weekend we went to Silver Dollar City, an amusement park, about 1 1/2 hours from here. We went with my folks, Luc, Amy, and Isac. We had a great time. Since my Dad and Luc don't like to go on roller coaster rides they were willing to watch Sofia so Micah and I could go on all the rides too. This was Isac's first time on a roller coaster ride and he really enjoyed it. It's actually a pretty small place and only has a few roller coasters. I'd love it if we could make it over to Six Flags in St. Louis before it closes for the winter at the end of October. It would be a little tough with Sofia though. We'll see....

More photos

This last month has just flown by. School has been going very well (they haven't kicked us out yet!) :) My favorite class at the moment is Animism. It's so interesting to hear such a different worldview and the guy who teaches it has so many personal stories to tell from all his years working in the tribe. But it really brings home what a challenge it will be to live in a tribe and try to understand the way they think. But understanding the way they think is so necessary for teaching the gospel so that the message you preach is the same message they understand. Otherwise they'll misunderstand the message and mix your beliefs in with theirs. Anyways, all that to say that we're being challenged by this class to think about a lot of the issues that will arise while working in a tribe.

Sofia is now 3 1/2 months old. She's up to 16 1/2 pounds and is just starting to fit into some of her 9 month clothing! I have to admit she's my little doll - I love to dress her up in all her little outfits!

Here's some photos!
