A big thanks to any of you who have been praying for our kids’ transition to our life in Senegal! While there have been some hard things, over all they’ve done really well and I thought you might enjoy hearing a little about what THEY like about living in Senegal.

Zippy Land – a place some friends took us to where you pay to play on an outside playground and indoor play area with a ball pit and slides.
The American store – We didn’t even buy anything there, but I guess they liked it!

Being able to eat with my hands
The playground at the mission
The money is colorful

Our kids are a great age for public transportation – big enough to get in and out themselves, but still small enough they can sit on laps.
Gracia likes buses, while Calvin prefers the taxis
Matching buzz cuts.

Playground at the mission
The kids like to use the paper that baguettes come in to draw and cut out.
We got our very first African outfits made just in time for the wedding we attended!
The church was full, so some of us sat outside during the wedding ceremony.

No matter where you go in the world…kids are cute!
