Simple Things

We did not allocate much luggage space to bringing toys, thinking "kids make their own toys". This theory has been tested and proven correct. Here is some third- world fun the kids have been having. . .

splashing in a wash basin

climbing a tree

stick, sticks, and mores sticks

motorcycles (not in motion)

very primitive bicycles



The kids are doing really well and seem adjusted and happy. It really helps that they are both extroverts and love being around people. Someone asked Josiah where he was from and he said "Africa!" Clearly he is a confused third- culture kid, but for now he seems more interested in finding a new stick than worrying about his identity. Annette loves to wave and say "hi" and "bye" to everyone. The Filipinos love to say "she is just like a doll" (pronounced "dole")


  1. So glad to hear you're all doing well...Oh my goodness, Annette is getting so big!!! Can't wait to see you soon! :)

  2. So fun! I agree with Dana... Annette looks like she is going to pass up Jo in size :o) jack asked today where "his Siah" was :o)

  3. Great post. Your kids are darling!

    I love the life you are living for Jesus Christine. Fabulous.

  4. I agree..Josiah is looking like such a big KID now...and Annette just looks like she's so much fun :)
