But I did get to have a phone interview with an upcoming long term volunteer. We had a very nice, hour long chat! Can you believe...another vegetarian! Vegan, actually.
And the Bengtson family of Texas did arrive exactly at 9:15pm to Cochabamba, yeah!
We are having such a good time with them already. No good pictures of the whole crew yet, but those will come in time. We have a big weekend ahead! Made slightly less hectic for me because church was canceled....yeah, thanks to the H1N1 scare here and government ordinances....but never fear, we'll just find another for this week!
Sorting through all the treasures they brought us. I'm not sure who enjoyed themselves more: the kids, the staff, or us!
(We had a good little laugh when Reed saw that lunch time was fast approaching and declared emphatically to anyone listening, wide eyed and making motions as if holding a spoon, "I am NOT going to go 'heeeerrree comes the airplane', uh-uh!" As you can see, he got over his initial fear, even if the feeding position looks a little bit awkward to me.)
Finally, we are getting good news on our foster family program. We truly see a light at the end of the tunnel for the foster family program, and it is glorious!!! Who's ready to help?!?!?! It was sad and very very hard to turn down a 3 week old baby today, but what can I say - the twins got here first!
