Another full day
We don't really have any new news on the adoption process. We are continuing to get ready to go to Port-au-Prince on Tuesday. We will be leaving early in the morning and staying indefinitely.
Today was a good day. I will try to explain some of the pictures from today. One of the interpreters that works here is an excellent artist. We are having him paint a picture of Kerwin for us. I took a picture that shows the progress but I didn't post it because we want it to be a surprise for our family when we get home. So, you only get to see the artist at work. We also delivered food today and there are some pictures from downtown and the market. After delivering food, Kerwin and I got to go for a ride around town with Mike Grant on his four wheeler. Mike and his wife Teresa came in with us and are staying here as missionaries. We enjoyed the ride.
Last night we watched the US soccer team lose to Argentina in the America Cup. Kerwin helped me make brownies and then he served them to everyone. He had a blast: it was very sweet.
Kerwin is saying lots of cute things now with his sign language. Last night he said, "Mommy, water please." Kerwin wakes up slowly in the morning. One morning, Mike told him it was time to get up and he said, "No, it's time to sleep." This morning he told me to "turn off the lights," and rolled back over. His first attempt at a sentence was "Dinner eat time." He has changed so much since we got here even though it just seems like just yesterday.
The next group arrived today. They brought in a surprise present from sister. Thanks, Rachel. I will be cooking again this weekend. Hopefully my last.
