Last night we arrived at Redeemer House and took the latest treasure out for pizza and some mini golf to celebrate.

First time as a family of 9!  [!]

 We are trying to slow down and breathe for a bit now.  The fast pace of moving, packing for Africa and traveling has caught up with us [me] and we are purposing to take it down a notch or two for a few days.

This morning we went for a walk.

This mama had just had her baby.  We all ooh and awwed as you can take the kids out of the farm but you can't take the farm out of the kids. :)

This was a sight I had not ever seen here … a full family of monkeys.  The kids loved it!

Daddy grabbed us some lunch and we headed home… or our home for a few days anyways.  Hoping our guesthouse will be livable soon!
