Yesterday she came running to the table where Andy and I were sitting and said, "where is my other sacrifice?" For a moment, I thought she was really spiritual. Was she was playing Isaac and acting out the story of Abraham's sacrifice- "Ok, Dad, where's my other sacrfice?" Nope. Or was she wanting to sacrifice something to God? Her time, her love, her toys? Oh no. She's not that spiritual.
Eventually we figured out she was looking for her saxophone! Maybe she'll use her saxophone to play a sacrifice of praise to the Lord!

Oh my, how much she has changed in these past 9 months! Since she knows all about the two Peanut secret and that she has some new ones...I decided to make a "New Peanut" rule...no chewing on the nose! She can say it and in English and Chinese....Bu Ke Yi Chi Bi Zi!!! We talk about that rule almost everyday. I hope these Cleanuts will last us til she heads off to college so the "No chewing his nose" rule is our best shot at making that happen! So far it's working...though she has asked a couple of times for the old Peanuts (I think because she can chew them!)
Thanks Mom and Granny for all your hard work in getting these to us!! We are thankful! YEAH FOR TWO CLEANUTS!

3:18 I email American doctor in our city for advice
3:45 Doctor calls me. From symptoms he thinks Jack has ear infection. He tells me what antibiotic to buy and the dosage.
4:00 I load kids in stroller and head to pharmacy.
4:05 Arrive at pharmacy. Buy 10 day supply of medicine for less than 5 dollars-no prescription, no insurance card, no waiting.
4:08 Stop by dairy store to get yoghurt to mix with medicine.
4:15 Get home and give Jack his first dose of medicine!
Some things in this country are really convenient!
For the Grandmas: Jack seems to be doing OK. He's not sleeping as well as normal and he's fussier than normal but he's still managing to follow EG all over the house! Put him down this evening and he only cried for a few minutes. Praying for a good night's sleep for our little man.

First of all, you'll need proper transportation...
And if you've spent any previous time in our town, your mode of transportation might look like mine-slightly dirty, with bad suntan lines and painted with crazy flowers by a local lady all for $1.50.
It's preferable to run errands with a buddy...
And you may need to stop by the shoe shining and repair shop to pick up your repaired shoes.
And the 15 ladies that work at the store will entertain your buddy while you shop.
And when you get home, your buddy will be wiped out from all the excitement on the town and take a great nap. And you will wash your feet because they are so dirty, put away all the items you purchased, and sit down and eat the Chic Fila sandwich you picked up while out running your errands. Oh, one can dream.
