Transition #1

We finally made it to Richmond. After all my hard work explaining the timetable of events to Haley and Darcy, on Monday Haley announced to Cynthia and Brittany that we were moving to Iceland that morning. Even after explaining everything to her again, when we arrived to check in at a big building she asked if we were at the airport. Why do I even try? The girls are loving having so many kids their age around. There are 50 children under the age of 2 here. Haley told us that she was going to make 6 friends while she was here...friends that were either size 3 or size 4 (cute!). Our living space is communal living at its best. There is a large living room that four families share, and kids running around playing at all times. We even found a little girl in our bedroom last night when we started to put the girls to bed. I love it. That's all for now. Colby just informed me that I have 150 pages to read and a writing assignment that is supposed to get done.

I am sure it is your {dream and your nightmare} all at the same time! {communal living!} My dream. I hope Haley makes 6 friends and I hope you make some too!
{Just not a best friend, okay?}

When we see you later in these two months, you'll have to reflect on this living experience for me. I've been thinking that my culture has taught me almost nothing about community (vital part of Christianity)and I might have to do something radically different to compensate.

...and that is a lot of babies in one joint... :)

i have got to ditto jenn and say i reallllly look forward to hearing more about this living experience...
it sounds like a crazy amazing adventure, and you're not even in iceland yet (regardless of what Haley may think...:)
let me know when you figure out how/when it might work for us to watch the girls. the 23rd or 30th are possibilities for us.

Linz, the 30th might work better for us...
