DAY 12

We still have no running water at the house. We have rain barrels that are fed from our gutters; the overflow goes into a cement cistern. We have already used the three barrels behind our house and are now dependent on the two barrels in front of our house. A new pump has been purchased […]

DAY 6

We are staying in a hotel tonight because there is no running water at our house. We pump water from a well up to a water tower, then it runs into the house. Tim has been working with a plumber all day trying to solve the problem but there has been more than one: A […]

DAY 4

– It is raining now.– It has rained everyday since we arrived.– When the rain stopped, it only slowed to a drizzle.– It’s the dry season. We are still unpacking boxes, repairing electrical outlets and switches, and searching for that thing in that box that goes with the other thing from another box… Anna is […]

DAY 2

We are finally in our HOME in the rainforest. Yes, it is raining very hard right now; and it’s the dry season… We arrived Monday around 4:30 and lost daylight about 5:45. The truck was completely unpacked by 7pm. We celebrated Anna’s birthday at the Hotel Christo (about 15km away) with Heather and Cara, our […]

Hold Your Package

Thank you to everyone who has sent us a package. In preparation for the move, please don’t send anymore until we move and get a new Post Box, most likely several weeks from now. If you have already sent one, don’t worry, we will get it, but a little later than normal. Packages have arrived […]

WE MADE IT !!!

Yup! We ALL made it to SC – even Judah. We left that Sunday morning at 5:45am and made the journey. Michael, Tim’s brother, helped us unload at the mountain. We have been more focused on family rather than moving because Anna’s grandmother fell, broke her hip, and had surgery Thursday morning. A lot of […]

Moving

We packed the truck in 2 hours! Many thanks to Alex, Smooth, Heelz, and Pal who helped load. Also MANY THANKS to Alison Rhino for watching Judah ALL DAY as we packed and cleaned. We are still cleaning the house and is taking longer to clean than load the truck… Ugghhhh… We leave early tomorrow […]

Haggling in America

I lived in Uganda for the first half of 2004 and one of the greatest lessons I came away from my time there was haggling. There is a great sense of pride and accomplishment when you go to the Oweeno Market with 10,000 Shillings (about $5 US) and come home with lots of booty that […]

On the Move…

It’s official… We’re moving to SC! We have reserved our moving truck, began packing boxes, & the only thing that is missing is you. So come over to my place Saturday, August 30 to help us load the truck. We will start loading about 9:30am and will provide lunch for all who come to help. […]
