In the Summer of 2010 I was one of many lucky people who had the opportunity to take a short trip to Haiti. I fell almost instantly in love and just can't keep myself away. I've spent about 11 months in Haiti since the first time I went two and a half years ago and my time there isn't over. I'm exploring my options on where to take my life from here but it WILL include Haiti in one form or another. This is where I record stories and thoughts about my experiences.

I have the chance to visit the girls in Leogane for one night and I'm VERY excited. I am definitely in need of a break. (a GIANT flying beetle thing just climbed up my pj pant leg. ew ew ew.) Anyway, I'm really excited to see the girls again. I wish I could stay for longer. I'm also excited to get a suitcase full of goodies like diapers that Amy and my mom sent me with a team who is going to Leogane. Yay!

School has been going pretty well for the kids. I lead the circle time again and the kids were the best behaved I have ever seen them be for me. That was nice. My two kids were really good when we split into groups to do book work too. They are FLYING through their work and are so smart! I am loving seeing the progress. We play fun games with their sight words and they are getting so fast. They are even starting to be able to sound out words on their own which is hard because they are used to a completely different alphabet with way different sounds. They are starting to speak more English during the day too. That's cool to see.

Today I was working on school and Sue was watching the babies for me. Jackson was cranky and she could NOT calm him down. He wouldn't drink his bottle for her or anything. So I went over and the second I picked him up he stopped crying. That warmed my heart. I love those little boys. But I'm in for trouble if they only like me... I thought multiples were supposed to be more easy going but that hasn't really been the case with these boys. They LOVE to be held and many times, that's the only thing that will make them happy.
