What have we been doing?? Who knows! We had a steady stream of lovely visitors for a while. Rhett climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (which deserves it's own post) and other than that our days have been very normal. This is a busy time of the year in Kijabe because many people leave during the long school break so Rhett has been up to his eye-balls with work, being on call (a lot) and teaching responsibilities for various things. So what does "normal" look like? Here are some photos from the last few months . . .
I celebrated yet another birthday! I pray this year is the best one yet!
Gus woke up for the last time in his crib . . .
And took his first nap in a big boy bed . . .
We play with sticks in the dirt . . .
And we climb trees - oh, boy do we climb trees . . .
I wonder where they learn how to climb . . . oh yeah - they have good teachers!
Ford eats as much passion fruit as he can handle . . .
We play "muddy river" and get a little dirty . . .
So we build a little bridge . . .
We turn roller skates into pets and take them everywhere . . .
We turn rakes into horses and race around the yard . . .
We bite on sticks for some unknown reason . . .
We bite on sticks because our big brother did . . .
We love our dog, Kuli . . .
We drink chai with our outside worker, Jesse . . .
We spot the most amazing birds in our yard . . .
Gus has this reaction to his first day of potty training . . .
But is getting the hang of it!
Claire read Green Eggs and Ham so she got to eat some green eggs of her own . . .
The boys drink more chai and eat more passion . . .
Claire prefers hers black (with sugar) like her Mama . . .
And when you are learning how to use the potty and you don't have a dryer it can get a little complicated . . .
So that is us - every day. Some big stuff and a lot of little stuff that makes up our life. It's wonderful.
