I heard this conversation on the way home from dropping the girls off on the LAST day of school!
Mark---Mrs. Stumbo said she would miss me---I am so sad---b/c I won't see her again---(tears flowing at this point---breaking mom's heart!)
Matthew---Stop Crying I can't understand you!!
Mark(more clearly-barely)---I'm sad because I won't see Mrs. Stumbo again---she is going to miss me.
Matthew---I don't speak Whinese so I don't know why you won't see her again...
You realize they do listen when they repeat your words--even at the most inappropriate times---when Mark's heart is sad and Matthew obviously---has no sympathy!!

We went out to Elema with John to help with loading bricks and enjoy the country. Normally John and Sergei go out alone, but today I had the boys and Sergei had his wife, his twin daughters and his mother in law.
The kitchen pictures are before cleaning! Christina, Sergei's wife, went out this Sunday to clean out the kitchen.
Note: The stove--wood burning--is not what I will be cooking for 18+ people three times a day on. I will be using a gas stove---look out world!! I know my mom cooked for us 5 on a gas stove, but 18+ three times a day will be interesting!! Hey, I know if people in Nicaragua can cook a week's worth of beans on an open fire, I can surely do a gas stove!!!
John and the boys rode the lawn mower with the trailer on the back to pick up the bricks. I can't wait to be able to show after pictures of when the work is all done. The team from Georgia comes in a week and we will camp out at Elema for a few days with them.
Then, we will come home and our friends -Tim and Sue- will take the kiddos and John and I will celebrate 14 years of marital bliss!! We are staying up late to see the bridges open(they open at 1-2 am!!). We might have to take a nap just to be awake!!
We have less than 3 weeks left in St. Petersburg before heading to Houston to see what God has for our future.

We have met a couple of Georgie folk that came over to adopt their little girl---this was us just hanging in the hallway...it was so great to meet our new friends and to see them go through this process of being new parents! We loved getting to know them and are so excited for them!!
