Flip flopping for a good cause!

I am finally sitting here and signed in as an official resident of VA. At least I guess I am. Not sure when one actually becomes a resident. Any ideas?
Beautiful country. Lovely house. Still no camera. :-( For the readers who are not Facebookers, a certain child of mine accidentally ended the life of our camera. Sad day as I had so many pictures to upload and tales to tell! I hope to work out something before I have two month's worth of pics. Yikes! Since I cannot really tell of our adventures without photos, I thought I'd mention the boys' latest compassion project. Maybe you'd like to be a part. . .

Pardon the post title regarding our new acitivty! I was hoping it wouldn't bring back too many nauseating memories of former presidential campaigns. :-) The idea came to me during a missionary service with this family. Since something as small as a pair of flip flops can bring delight to a shoeless person, we decided to send the boys walking for money. For every five minutes they take strides, they will be given $1 to help buy flip flops which will in turn be sent to the Stetlers for their ministry in Mexico. If you'd like to sponsor these bundles of energy, I will email you our address as I am not fond of plastering it on the Internet. The boys will be delighted with your encouragement! Blessings.

Hmmm, I think you're officially a resident when you get the driver's liscense, but I'm not positive. Cause since the whole homeland security thing, you have to "establish residency" to get the driver's license. So, maybe it's when you officially have an address (like close on a house or sign a rental agreement). Hmmmm, Hmmm.

On the camera death, the memory card is probably still fine (depending on the method of execution), so you could get the pictures off the memory card once you have a new camera. Of course if the new camera takes a different card type, you might need an adapter, but Walmart has them.

I'm not a big fan of flip-flops myself but have a ton of shoes I've been thinking of getting rid of... would you be up to receiving a shipment of those? Otherwise I can send $ for flip-flops, just don't like the lack of support.

haha! I'm a Big fan of good shoes... and a lot of them. Hmm :) Love you!! Check out my new post about my trip!
