Well the kids are off to camp. They were supposed to leave at seven in the morning. Oh how I wish we could be there with them. Instead we are going to the open market to look for balloons for them, some fresh fruit, and maybe a few souvenirs.
I forgot to mention that John's crown came out yesterday. It happened while chewing gum and when he brought it to me I thought that he was kidding. Nope. So he laid across the hood of the car while I played Dentist Christine and placed it back in the right way. All the kids were around us and they couldn't stop commenting on how crazy the whole situation was. Thankfully it is back in and John is now chewing on the other side.
Another thing I want to share-- sure to give you a good laugh because it did me, was when John asked for eggs. He went into one of the stores and didn't know the name for eggs. When the store owners looked at him strangely because they had no clue what he was asking for-- he did this. He started clucking like a chicken, then pretends to pull something out of his bottom and then pretends to hold a round object in his hand which he then calls a "Meeach" which mean ball. Needles to say they understood my funny husband. Who says you need to know the language in order to communicate? I think John got his point across quite well-- don't you?
P.S. So many of you have left comments and private emails about wanting to help and possibly starting something to send care packages to the kids left in the orphanage. I think that is a great idea. I have the address. I also would love for families to be touched with these children's stories that may lead them to adoption-- so please feel free to share the post "Impacting Each Other Lives" with anyone who you think would read. Thanks! You are so right! God can move mountains!
Happy 13th Birthday, Adelise!
