Is That For Us?

In just 6 days, Mack's parents, one of his sisters, niece and her husband and their baby will be here in Ghana. We have been preparing for their arrival. It started in full gear last week. We had to head to Accra. The three older kids needed to renew their passports. Mack said we are going to Accra and coming back the same day. Ugh! We left the house at 4:00 AM. We had an appointment at the Embassy at 10:00 AM. It takes about 4 hours to get to the capital of Accra, from where we live. We made it on time with no delays. We got back to the house about 5:00 PM. It was a long day, spent mostly in the car. 

I have been baking banana bread, coffee cake, cookies, brownies and hamburger/hot dog buns. They are in the freezer waiting for the day appointed. My kids keep coming in the kitchen. It that for us. No, it for Grandma & Grandpa. They are dying to eat the goodies. We had to paint the guest room that the kids use for school. It was really gross. Well Mack also made the kids paint the living room and dinning room. I have managed so far to only paint a screen door. Last time, I painted all the bedrooms and every door in the house. It's looking real nice and clean. 

We have many things scheduled while they are here. VBS is scheduled for July 1-5. They have to fly out on the 4th, so those at church will finish up the last couple of days of VBS. Be sure to come back next week to see what we are up to. Until then.  


  1. Hi Mrs. Siekbert! I hope you all are doing well in Ghana! We miss you very much, and look forward to when you come back to the States on furlough. Tell Naomi I said HI! :)
