Another great week for Ældste Holbrook in the Helsingør area.

As I have said many, many times Ældste Holbrook is loving the mission and he is so enjoying the area he is in right now. He has many great people to teach and he gets to see the family too. What more can you ask for right?

He went on splits this week with Ældste Lindstrom and he had a great time.

 Having fun at Mormor and Morfar.

 There is nothing as a good day in the yard.

 Frederiksborg Castle and Ældste Sullivan. 

What a BEAUTY ;o)

 The Gardens of the Queen.

A map to tell you what to see in the Garden ;o)

 I just LOVE this Castle. It is so beautiful!!


Having fun !!!

More of the Gardens. Just so pretty.

 The Guest house ;o)

The Danish national bird is the swan. This is a great photo!

 This is Denmark in the early Summer. SO GREEN and PRETTY!

 Not sure what is going on here ;o)

Here they bought very expensive homemade chocolate and I am not sure it was worth it. But Denmark is known for it's great treats.

Another great week for Ældste Holbrook in beautiful Denmark. Looking forward to next summer when we get to go visit and see ALL these places with him :o).

Mother's Day, the BEST gift EVER!!

Yes it was Mother's Day today and I am blessed to be the Mother of three wonderful, fun and very creative "kids", if you can still call them that ;o)

I love my girls and spending time with them today playing cards and just enjoying each others company was great. They are both so dear to me and brings me so much joy.

The BIGGEST event for our little family was the chance we had to talk to Ældste Holbrook on Face-time. We only get to talk and see him twice a year. On Christmas and on Mother's Day so it is VERY special. We ALL look so forward to it of course and it was as always AWESOME!!

 Two GREAT men. What a joy to see them together :o)

 Ældste Holbrook is so HANDSOME and had a wonderful spirit!!

 This is what Ældste Holbrook saw. THE family :o)

What a blessing it was to see our son on FaceTime from my parents home in Denmark. It is a blessing and a joy to share this special time with both of them and him. We are so blessed to have the technology to do this. So grateful that he is serving in Denmark and growing and becoming an even more wonderful young man . THANK YOU for being ours :o)

First week with Ældste Sullivan. A new friend and new adventures.

So this was the first week Ældste Holbrook and Ældste Sullivan had together. This means a new friend and new adventures. 

 Morfar, Ældste Sulivan and Ældste Holbrook.

 Taking a walk in Morfar's BEAUTIFUL garden. It is already amazing this year. So pretty!!

Three great men at church in Allerød Ward. 

Beautiful mustard field in Denmark. It is so like home and I really do miss this time of year in Denmark. It is so GREEN and wonderful.

Ældste Sullivan patiently waiting for Ældste Holbrook to finish his emails. Ældste Holbrook is a FAST typist 120 words per minute or more but he has many people to write.
 Ældste Holbrook and Fie have a good time!

Ældste Holbrook is learning and growing in Denmark. He is loving the people and he is loving the area he is in. What a HUGE blessing for him to serve the Lord there.
