Life has been busy, but fun, lately. We are currently hosting the Nalls family as they wait to move north to Tete in central Mozambique. The daddy, Chris, actually left yesterday driving to Tete (it's about a 3 day drive from here) and Katie and baby Abigail are staying here until next week and will fly up and join Chris. We are loving them being here. Abigail who is 1 is so much fun. And her mama is pretty fun too!
Our house has also become a day-care center of sorts. Our new colleagues, the Brains, live outside our city but drive in everyday to study Portuguese. Right now their babysitter is keeping their baby at our house each day. This way the babysitter doesn't have to travel out to their house each morning (local public transportation can be quite unpredictable) and they can be close by while they are in class each morning.
Our other colleagues, the Jackson family, returned from their 7 month stateside assignment yesterday. It was really great to see them.
Charlie and Will left early this a.m. on a 3 day school field trip to South Africa. Charlie drove one of the vehicles and will be a chaperone while the kids are challenged at an adventure camp. They were told to bring their oldest, rattiest clothes and shoes to wear. Coleson had to miss the trip because of a little mini-surgery he had this week on an ingrown toenail. (Ok, I hate the word toenail. It's just a gross word.)
Well it looks like this is going to post. Wahoo. I had a serious post ready the other day. You'll just get that another day.
