Some days are just simply beautiful. Here are some photos from our recent picnic with 30 families affected by disabilities. These families have been a part of family retreats, autism day camps and/or Saturday morning English classes. The volunteers got as much joy from the event as the families.

If you ever have the chance to ask Molly what she misses most about America, you will hear "swimming!" Even though we've lived in China for more than two years now, it wasn't until this month that we went swimming for the first time.
Sweet friends from our international fellowship invited us to join them at one of the local colleges for an afternoon of swimming, and it was great fun. Two days later, as the kids and I were at the playground with a neighbor, we learned he was signed up for swimming lessons -- a 12-day program that began the very next day. Molly jumped at the chance to join him, and I was thankful for how his mom drove us there each day and helped me navigate the unfamiliar gym.
