::Benaiah turned three! Thankfully, it wasn't the same drama as last year.
This year, he was quite relaxed...a bit too much perhaps?
That's better, Benaiah...
::Talitha took her first steps a couple weeks ago, but now she's walking everywhere. My baby is growing up.
::A favorite spot to visit is the balcony of the grocery store down-town. The kids love going downtown. We've seen a great improvement in the older kids confidence as they walk down the street. The busy-ness isn't bothering them so much. William and Benaiah never needed help in this...they just charge forward pushing all the legs competing for space on the side walk out of the way. The Ugandans always get a kick out of seeing the little Mzungu boys boss the sidewalk like they do.
::Eric and I got two nights away by outselves to Kampala thanks to Tessa and our friend, Lexi. We had so much fun. We slept about 10.5 hours both nights and took hour long naps each day and laughed as we only took one suitcase into our hotel room...seriously, it was wonderful. :) The drive down was beautiful.
As a special treat we brought the kids back two big boxes of cereal...Rice Krispies and Corn Flakes. Benaiah had already forgotten what cereal was and Talitha had never had it before. Both were impressed. We also got a microwave. Talitha, not remembering how amazing microwaves are, freaked out when we put her bottle in it the first time.
::The kids found the largest snail I have ever seen in my life...it was as big as my hand...seriously...they grow this big??
