The six children and volunteer Elena of Casa de Amor II are now moved!
So the move ended up on January 20. And the whole city rose up in protest! Okay not exactly, but by the time I had hit the THIRD detour because of roads I always use being shut down due to construction, well.... It was also a blockade day. All the turmoil started just a block before the turn off to our new house. It took me 10 minutes to get through that block each time, and one time I had to jump the curb because a big truck was blocking the road's entrance. Fun stuff.
It was also a rainy, muddy, cool day. We decided we'd take the mud and mess because it meant temperatures did NOT soar into the 80s or 90s for once.
Another interesting quirk of the day: the lights at some of the rotundas on our main "highway" were pretty goofy. I snapped the picture below as I maneuvered through one intersection, only to realize I should have kept out the camera. At the next the lights were all burnt out, ha!
Right before bedtime I picked up the kids and brought them to their new home! I also took the 2 year old, currently in the Baby Home, who will soon move into their house. It was a fun time! We took them on a tour, then the little boys started playing with the guy volunteers/staff member, while the two girls were more interested in finding and arranging their things.
While we realize that structures and buildings and houses are not the most important, as we impact the little lives (with big potential) in our care, a cheery house does set the scene for quality home life!
More pictures soon... :)
