It’s official Charlie is half a year old! We have a six month old. Thursday was her half birthday. I really can’t comprehend how this happened. These 6 months have been smiley, exhausting, teaching, grace-filled, and an absolute memory making … Continue reading
Thankfulness is a trait that Will and I have endeavored to set as a pillar of our marriage. Considering we’ve only been married for about 4 1/2 years, I’d say that we are still early on in our marriage. That … Continue reading
Today I want to tell you the story of how I found out about the Little Pom Pom and how I told Will. December 15th, 2015 was the day that our reality changed. We were not trying, we were trying … Continue reading
February 7th is one of our favorite days of the year. It’s our “Valentine’s Day.” Five years ago it was Super Bowl weekend and a farm boy from Kentucky (Will) had come all the way to Kansas to take a … Continue reading
Day 3 was spent learning the stories of the people around us. Busy but full of opportunities to shoe people that they matter. Continue reading
Warning: I am posting from my phone. I am sorry if the pictures do not come through or if the formatting is messy.
We left Miami yesterday at lunch time bound for Haiti. We landed at what is officially the smallest airport I have ever been in, paid $10 to enter the country, and spent the next hour on a bus taking in the country side and enjoying our last hour of air conditioning.
Our room is right next to a pig stye and several chickens and roosters. About the time the generator kicks off shutting off the fan in our bedroom is when the rooster starts crowing…. But! A few minutes later, Adrian, the most helpful mandatory you’ll ever meet, delivered the coffee to our porch. 🙂

Today was our first day of teaching. We taught in 30 minute segments. We are teaching English and sign language. It’s not my specialty, but I am enjoying it. My favorite was recess! The kids all mob you and say “Blanc! Blanc!” translation: “White! White!” They all just want to touch you. Literally I have never been so mobbed. But it was awesome. They just want you to play with them or let them stand and hold your hand.
This afternoon it rained so we didn’t do anything. Tomorrow we get to tour the town after school.
For now I will leave you with this nugget – I have been in Haiti two days and already being married to an engineer had proven it’s worth two times. Our very ingenuitively hung mosquito net and when we were locked out of our room. Who knows what he’ll MacGyver for me tomorrow!
I remember writing last year for our anniversary, that not a lot that had changed on the outside part of our lives… the part that everyone gets to see. Year 3 was different. In fact, the majority of the landmark … Continue reading
The Pomeroy’s have some exciting news! We are going on a mission trip to Haiti with a team from our home church, Southland Christian Church in September! “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of … Continue reading
This was supposed to be posted on Saturday, but I ran out of time… we all know how that goes.
Roughly 5 years ago he walked into my life as nice guy from Kentucky who always wore a red baseball hat (confession: at the time I didn’t know baseball – I just knew it was a red hat; I didn’t realize it was for THE Reds), obviously loved Jesus and loved people, and thought I was cute. He saw in me a girl worth risking it all for – and he proceeded to do so. I got to know him and realize what a rare, genuine, and remarkable man he is. Fast-forward through all the cheesy, lovey-dovey stuff; today Will and I have been married for 3 years!
There will be an update on year three and a whole bunch of pictures from our weekend anniversary trip to Colorado that don’t do the grandeur of the mountains justice. But for now, I will leave you with links to some of our other posts about Marriage and Relationship Lessons Learned:
We are about to hop on a plane to celebrate 3 years of marriage with a weekend of adventure in Colorado!!!! Our actual anniversary isn’t till Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start reminiscing right now. =) As we … Continue reading
