As I'm typing, Mike's plane should be taking off for Ethiopia. In approximately fifteen and a half hours, he should land in Addis Ababa's Bole Airport (where it will be late evening). Get some sleep, babe! Big days ahead!
In the meantime, the boys and I have been having some fun. Please forgive the quality of these pictures. I only have my cell phone as Mike took our camera with him.
We had a fair amount of rain this morning, making things pretty wet all
day. When I picked Ethan up from school this afternoon, we were finding
snails all along the edge of the grass. We now have a snail hanging out in
a margarine container in our kitchen.
This evening I had scheduled the pick-up of a item I found in a local ad.
I had wanted to arrange an earlier pick-up time to facilitate an earlier
bedtime, but the woman couldn't meet me before 7 o'clock. That gave us
plenty of time after supper to drive to her area of the city and search for
a "new" park. We found one complete with very wet slides, wet sand, and
wet climbing apparatus. The messier, the merrier!
The park also featured a walking trail through the woods which just begged to be
explored. Of course, we obliged.
