Aw, Shoot.

Today was day two of our new schedules...we spend four mornings each week at Oasis of Hope (since it's our--or at least my-- favorite) and then we head to various places each afternoon.

This morning, all of the house boys were at Oasis because they were headed to be tested for HIV. You can read more about that on Chris' blog HERE and HERE.

Something they love to do is take our cameras and do a photo-shoot...and we love to come home to the photos they've taken...

Funny poses...

Paul and Daniel
Johnston and Paul
Actually great photos: (there are bound to be a few good ones in 100)



After lunch, we headed to Purpose-Driven Academy to talk about what we'll be working on each Tuesday afternoon. Turns out, I'll be assistant-teaching a sophomore English class and attending choir practice (along with some other office work)...should be fun.

Pastor Moses offered to drive us home "as long as we don't mind sitting in the back". Turns out, he meant the back of the truck. So, here we are in the back of a pick-up truck...safe.

We came home and did a Yoga video...watched part of Ferris Bueller...made dinner (Top Ramen and a tuna sandwich)...I talked to Katie Edwards on the phone! Then we played Celebrity (we tied), loaded photos, blogged, read...it was so nice to just be in the same room, but not feel like we constantly had to make conversation...

I finished the second book of the Twilight series last night, so good. I can't wait to get number 3...seriously...I've been looking all over Kitale for it...no luck, yet.

Love that Moses is a Dodger fan!
All those years in Saabs and Volvos only to have you riding in the back of a pickup! Ugh!
Hope to get the book to you soon!
Thanks for all the updates!
