So I posted pictures of our 1st part of the trip here and Mark made a video you can view it here.. After Mark left I had moments of ‘ticket change remorse’ but I knew I had a few business to take care of here ( so I consoled myself) I missed Mark..The kids missed him sooo much.
*** May I just brag that Joey has a cuteee ( not biased at all) Kenyan accent! He speaks lots of swahili in sentences… proud mama!****
Okay here is a treat to Kenyan sunset:)-
Sarah is attempting to walk to keep up with the big cousins.
April is here, my baby Joey turned 5! A day at luna park and then a day of eating cake Yum…- Happy 5th birthday Joey and God bless you.
Alright, 9 days later guess who turns one ! My Sweet Sarah is one…. where did time go? Happy Birthday Sarah we love you so much and God bless you sweet girl…
After all the April sugar.. we spent time visiting with family & friends.
Took a bus to go see my other Aunt Grace — so warm, welcoming and abundant love! She lives out in the country running a library and farming.
Okay — so Hannah got sick, scare! she gets fibril seizures anytime her temperatures rises real fast. So she did gets one of those and I was not HOME, I was 30 miles away and in Nairobi traffic that translates to (2hrs away)! I still shake up typing this… — Well lets all just pray for her to outgrow it. Doc said around 5-6year Yikes. Seems so far!
Its getting close just a 3 weeks to go! I am already feeling rushed again….
Then the tradition –family picture time came. Off course typical of “some” of us, it had to be a last minute project. Getting everyone together was hard ( yes) — considering Kenya is smaller than Colorado and Nairobi is probable the size of Castle rock (maybe not). We picked a date and time –but again… only 1 person on time…most of us were late… some 1 hour late, some 2, 4 hours and some forgot all together.. cutting this story short.. here is the family 5 out of 6! I love you all… laughing at how the pics turned out – OR maybe that I am the one who was super LATE:)-
Well well.. we left Kenya on May 2nd.. I mean it, everybody took us to the airport..a fleet! felt special, I cried leaving. The kids slept in flight since we were traveling at their regular sleep times– the layover was still the hardest! Entertaining them for 10 hours nonstop took a toll on my body and brain… but we were so glad to be back! Thanks to Mark for letting us take so much time away ( we missed you so much)
Thank you friends and family for all the prayers and sweet emails, calls and texts!!
***Okay I said I would not whine about it anymore but whatever! so the airport officer ( what are they called?) threw away my Kenyan beef spices Roiko at the point of entry ( I choose not to dwell on that today) but I had to whine a little more again today — I
FUN …..here are a few random pics why I LOVE AFRICA … just for laughs from all over ( and Africa, this is why i live here) enjoy and laugh… “…Yes every 60 seconds life does happen in Africa!”
