Choo Choo!

Our little M (or M'anna as she sometimes calls herself) can be quite creative. Here is her rendition of a choo-choo train:

All the animals are cozied up for the ride.

The only passenger she doesn't want on her train is usually little sis. But sometimes she feels benevolent enough to let her on.

In between rounds of choo-choo, we had a restful day on Saturday just doing normal chores and stuff around the house. We took a walk as a family and enjoyed the blue skies. Today was a whirlwind! Sundays are not a restful day here because we not only go to church but also do all of our shopping and errands for the whole week. Its fine in a lot of respects because it gets rid of all desire to get off campus for a LONG time! On the other hand its exhausting for us- today we got to church at 9:20 and didn't get home from church/grocery shopping until close to 4pm.

But the good news is we found a church we really like! No church is a perfect fit in all ways, but we were excited to find a church that has good teaching, friendly people and is very family friendly. Daniel was the only one in jeans, but we decided that a little more casual-ness wouldn't hurt em:). So if they don't kick us out we're staying! The funny thing is it is the polar opposite of the church we visited last week (and what we thought we were looking for!) and I've never stepped foot into a church of this denomination before. So it will be a learning experience but a good one I think;)

Then we had dinner at the apartment of the interim diretor of aviation here at JAARS who also happens to have been in Cameroon for a long time and is going back there! We were excited to get to know them a little bit better.

What did you do this weekend?
