Looking Back: One Year Ago Today–A Day To Relax

Friday, Oct. 29, 2010

Here was our day in convenient bullet form:

  • Pretty quiet morning.
  • Said goodbye to our friend who lives in our city. She’s on her way back with her son!
  • Pastor Peter’s wife gave Blake a piece of bread. He’s only seven months old and I didn’t know how that’d work, but he just gnawed at it for a long time.  He was a hot mess.
  • Played would you rather?  Learned some funny things about our new friends!
  • We’ve been skipping lunch. We’re just kind of tired of rice w/ meat and sauce. We’re just eating the Clif bars and dried fruit we brought from home. 
  • Took a nap with the babies on our chests. Precious!
  • We went over to TASOK (The American School of Kinshasa) in the afternoon. It was a nice change of pace. We watched a soccer match. The Congolese team that they were playing didn’t have all the necessary equipment. Some played barefoot and most didn’t have shin guards.


  • After watching the game awhile we walked to a playground. It was wonderful just watching the kids play a little.
  • One of the guys played us a song on his iPhone that had us cracking up.  It’s called Business Time and it’s quite odd.  But it made us laugh. :)
  • We played tetherball and I got the giggles again. (I always get the giggles during tetherball…it’s really such an odd game.)  Hubby and I both knocked over one of the little guys. Lauren got hit in the face. After that, we decided Tetherball with babies wasn’t such a good idea.

  • We played Phase 10 after our community gathering. We were cracking up. There were lots of jokes about business time, band camp, etc.
