Keeping cool

The weather is much cooler today, but please keep up those specific prayers, because it really looks rainy out.

I thought I would share some photos of how we've been keeping cool lately:

Licking the air conditioner?

Will bought a huge fan, and we turn it into an "air conditioner" by putting a pot of ice in front of it. Then our little sillies take turns licking the ice, sitting on it, and splashing cold water around.

The Hunsucker Fan Club

There's another member of this club, but we're not going to share photos of him sitting there in his underwear.

UPDATE: I just talked to Will. His phone actually works in certain parts of their campsite! He's a counselor for this session of camp. The weather has been cooler, but it was starting to get hot, since the sun was coming out. Anna and Abby were doing well, except maybe that "Anna was a little perturbed by the bugs last night." They all stayed up late last night preparing for today, and Will said to pray that they'll get enough sleep this week.

Awww! No picture of Will!! How innovative of you all! Way to go! I'm sure this is great fun for the kids while you all are just trying to keep cool! We are praying for cool weather, but no rain! We're praying for our poor "non-camper" girls, too! This ought to be quite an adventure for them!!! (: Love to all!

I am thankful you at least have the fan. We'll keep praying. Much love....

Thanks for the updates, Phyllis! We really are "praying w/o ceasing", so it helps us to know how to pray more specifically! Hugs and kisses!

It seems like just yesterday you were showing us all those pics of Jaan with the ice on the window and tons of snow outside!! Time flies.... That last pic of the "fan club" was just way too cute!!

Will be praying for everyone at camp and your family!

Oh the pics are awesone!!! The air conditioner looks familiar though (other than no ice, in fact our freezer section of the fridge is SO small that there is not place for ice). But Christian has been pretty curious about this mashine that blows his hair around and he even thought it might play his favorite CD :)

Blessings to all of you
