Johnny had no idea why "going to court" was such a big deal, since he had already decided that he wanted to stay with us, so as far as he was concerned, it was already a done deal. Instead, his biggest accomplishment was completing his first 100 piece puzzle all by himself. I know, I know, we need to find some non-princess puzzles.
|Just in case this all seems a bit too idyllic, know that there was also a lot of this going on this month.|
|Spending time with one of our favorite-ever families, who go back as far as 2002 and our first term in Tanzania.|
|Spending time with the "Moja Mission" team who have an incredible ministry to Tanzanian teenagers, and also all happen to be studying in our program.|
|My latest post over at A Life Overseas is about the balancing act of educating kids overseas. If MK education is a part of your life, or you know someone who would benefit from this discussion, please head them over to this post!|
As of August 1st, our whole family is now ten hours away from home, at a Swahili language school. We are here for three weeks, all of us working intensely to improve our Swahili skills. Since we're gone from 8 till 5 every day, and have homework on top of that, my posts will be sparse this month. That is, unless you want lessons on conjugating Swahili verbs....since that's pretty much all that's on my mind right now. But don't worry....I'll be back!
