Pears, Crocodile, Iced Tea, Bananas, Car rides and Bubbles

This is a rare find at the grocery store in town!! We were so excited to eat pears! And they were actually very good, so juicy!

Naomi hasn't had very many pears in her life and loved them! She kept saying "juice" meaning they were very juicy!

In the office there is a skull of a very large crocodile sitting on the table under the bush radio. And every time we leave the office, Naomi and Jonathan need to "pet" the crocodile. :)

Naomi loves her bananas while watching tv for afternoon snack!


Making some iced tea for dad!


Playing with bubbles is the latest and greatest joy. Lilli, friend and neighbor, has children around the same ages as Jonathan and Naomi. And they LOVE to play together! Every day! So fun! And Lilli and I love to chat while our kids play!

Lilli is blowing the bubbles and her children Linda and Silas are trying to catch the bubbles along with Jonathan and Naomi.



Linda comes to our house almost every day to play with Jonathan and sometimes Naomi too.

Naomi's first time riding in the van in the back seat with Jonathan!

Hanging out with Dad!

Jonathan and Jacob built this car together!

Jonathan was very excited about it!



Hammock time!

Checking out the drain dad built in the rain, to see if it is working properly, that is. :)

Relaxing in the pool with Dad and friends!


Enjoying cookies and milk, relaxing on the porch.

Time to draw with Dad!

Grandma Came in a Box!

We were all very sad that Grandma couldn't come to Brisbane and see us when we were there for Naomi's annual MRI and medical check up. But we were happy that she was able to send a box of fun things to us! We were thankful that even though the box burst open, all the goodies were still inside!

LEGO, Jonathan's latest favorite!

A Unicorn stuffed animal for Naomi!

Airplane and glow stick for Jonathan!

After he figured out how to open it, he was quite excited to have a truck with his name on it!

Love this photos of Naomi and her new purse!



Naomi got a hair bow! Love it!

And her friend Linda also has a hair bow!

Grandma also sent an apron, that says "Mommy's Little Helper" and cute shoes for her too.


New shorts for me!

New Dress for Naomi!


Talking on Skype with my mom, love it!!

Dogs, Dogs, Dogs...

Jacob had another challenge with a disobedient dog on the other center very close by. So he brought him here to train him for a few days. Three male, aggressive, non socialized dogs, all together. It was  pretty challenging!

The Cement/Drain Project

It all started with digging... because the water was going into all the apartments. Jonathan and Linda had a great time helping with the digging process.


Home made drain pipe...PVC Pipe with holes drilled into it. The kids loved to pretend they were helping!




Finding crushed stone in a third world country is exhausting! It was quite a miracle actually that Jacob found this for his drain project.


Phase two of the Drain project - building a wall to redirect the rain water away from the building.

The cement pouring begins!



They were pouring the cement right next to our house... directly in front of the window of the kids room!



Finishing touches... Jonathan loves to help!



Next cement pour... prep 




Cutting wire to strengthen the concrete. 


And when it started to rain we had to go out to see if it was working... and it was!
