SPOILER ALERT! Ukarumpa friends, if you haven't seen the High School play yet, I have a few photos of it in this post. You may want to wait and be surprised by the dragon... it was pretty impressive.
Ok... here is a bit about our week:
This is Brian and Greg watching the Super Bowl. Yeah... we're a little behind here. It usually takes a while for us to get major sporting events recorded and sent here, where they are then shared around. The nice thing was is that we really didn't have a clue who won, as the Super Bowl was the weekend we had just gotten to Ukarumpa and didn't have our internet set up yet. Greg was really into it, and at every commercial break he would ask, "Did the blue team win???" (Yes, we're West Coast)
Caleb still wants to stick pretty close to mom all the time, even though we've been back in PNG for a month. He flipped out when I suggested he go to Daycare one morning, but then I let Greg work on him. Greg expounded on the all the delights of Daycare and convinced him to go (if Greg went with him). As you can see, he was a little unsure when I left him.
Turns out he did have a good time. I hope he remembers that next time I need him to go!
Brian did a day trip to Lae for work. Lae-in-a-day is always exhausting: six hours round trip of very alert driving, plus driving around running errands in the coastal heat in a vehicle without air conditioning.
Of course, I sent him with a shopping list!
He brought back applesauce - a special treat for the boys.
Among other things, he brought back ten kilos of cheese! Buying cheese in bulk, as we can do in Lae, is significantly cheaper than buying smaller amounts here. I divided it up into smaller portions and froze it. It should last us months!
Kate discovered her toes this week.
All week long Greg was looking forward to his "Mommy-Greg date." We went to see the High School play - A Play About a Dragon.
The dragon costume, paired with lights and great sound effects, was very impressive. I think they toned it down a little for the matinee performance that we attended, so that it wouldn't scare all the little kids.
The dragon was slain, of course.
Until next Friday.
