The US advances, but just barely
Here are some pictures from around the mission today and from Kerwin at VBS (coloring and playing volley ball). He did very well at VBS today. In fact, we had a really good day over all. He is learning to mind and he is a lot happier when he is not testing us on everything. He is improving his coloring skills: actually looking at the paper when he's coloring, not going crazy with the crayon, trying to color one object with one color, and he is making some progress on staying inside the lines but he still has a ways to go on that. He has been sitting with and watching the other kids coloring and has learned from them. He also made a basket with Mike's help. The story was about baby Moses in the basket.
He had quite a few babysitters today and had fun with them. Some of the younger teenage boys who are here were taking him for rides, swinging, and playing games with him. He also played more "hide and seek and run" with Mike.
Tonight we watched the US play Canada in the semifinals of the Gold Cup. It was intense. The US led the whole game. They were winning 2-0 at the half. Canada scored a goal midway through the second half; still not in bad shape. Then an American gets a red card and they have to play down a man. In the last minute of the stoppage time, a Canadian scores a goal but the official waves it off and calls offsides. On the replay, you can see that it shouldn't have been offsides and the goals should have counted sending the game to overtime. Never the less, we are on to the finals on Sunday. Enough with the sports reporting.
Thanks again for all the comments and emails. We are hoping to hear good news soon.
