We arrived back at the hotel Monday evening. Rachel (my sister) arrived Tuesday afternoon. We are so happy to have her. She brought lots of gifts and supplies. The biggest hits so far are the Nerf ball gun, the homemade cookies, the web cam and the new Harry Potter book (for me of course). The web cam is really nice. I got to talk to my mom this morning. She got to see Kerwin and we got to see Max (our dog) and Petey (my parent's dog). It was lots of fun. The other nice thing is that we can talk live. In order to talk on the phone, it generally costs a lot of money per call. This way it's free once you buy the camera.
Today we had fun at school with all our new supplies. Kerwin especially enjoyed the new class we added: Art. Rachel did watercolors with him and he loved it. He made two pictures. The first one was an abstract piece. The second one, I penciled in a baseball field and he painted inside the lines. He enjoyed playing with his new Playdough. We also had fun shooting each other with the Nerf gun. We swam this afternoon but it was unusually cloudy and cool so we did not stay in the water for long. Kerwin got to put on some new clothes and shoes this afternoon. He looks really sharp. The new hightops stay on his feet (most of the time) but he has some trouble walking in them. But he likes them and perhaps if he keeps wearing them he'll get used to them.
Barbara returned to Haiti this morning so we are looking forward to hearing some news on our new birth certificate over the next few days. Otherwise no new info. Mike will be leaving Saturday to head home. Our parents are excited about meeting him at the airport. Hopefully we won't be far behind.
