Brian has recently ventured into making homemade bacon, a skill which I believe will be much appreciated in PNG, as bacon is rare over there. Of course, he did manage to produce much more during his practice than I think we can consume in one month, so we've had to share the bounty!
Caleb and one of his beloved frogs. He checks with us regularly to make sure that his favorite stuffed animals will be able to travel back to PNG with us.
We had some snow and cold weather here this week. Greg has discovered the wonderful pastime of crunching frozen puddles while waiting for the school bus in the mornings. Reminds me of my own childhood!
I also got to check one item off my photography bucket list, which was taking photos of freezing soap bubbles. Conditions weren't ideal, but at least I got a chance to try it!
And I've been doing a lot of packing. Packing up boxes of household things, and also starting to pack the suitcases we'll bring back to PNG as we finish up shopping for things we want to take back with us.
Although, I do remember packing being a little bit easier before I had a little girl who wants to try on every new dress and pair of shoes that we've bought for the next four years:
I have to keep telling her - "that is for when you're bigger... it's a kindergarten dress." Many tears seeing all those pretty things packed away.
Wish us luck as we continue to pack. Next on the agenda is to purchase or build a storage shed to store our things that we will leave in the States.
