Where have you been Wednesday

Hello again dear friends of mine. Here's a little piece of what's been going on around here lately!

Sesa boy has been hard at work on his alphabet. He's mastered his upper and lower case alphabet!

Happy 4th birthday Ruby!
We've had the chance to see some of our kids back in the village lately, which is always so encouraging (and bittersweet!) to us!
Aaron is doing great and wanted NOTHING to do with us!
Maya and Marissa came for a visit with their grandmother!
Princess and Prince are full of spunk and smarts and also wanted NOTHING to do with us!
Shelley is starting school now, and she's happy as can be about it!
Watupa is the giggliest, dimpliest 3 month old ever.

In the ongoing saga that is Helen's hair, she now looks like a precious 70 year old woman. 
Florence is healthy and happy and healed, and we can't get enough of her sweetness.
We are still awaiting the results from Jonah's biopsy, but he's getting a little stronger every day in the meantime. Please keep praying with us for answers for him!
Priscilla spends all her time laughing, talking, and standing these days. She answers questions in class now with the right answers, and hearing her say, "God did!" is the sweetest sound imaginable. 
Mercy is back at the Haven now, but before she went, she'd spend hours helping Mati wash the dishes and other tasks. They're in love.
Binny's found his cheeky side. And we kind of love it.
Boyd turned 1! (and continues to gain weight by the hour...)
Our little lady Chabilo is moving all over town and never stops smiling. 
Chabonwa continues to explore and manipulate anything you put in his path. He's started running up for hugs and squeezes lately, which is progress for him.
Evelyn is pulling up and crawling all over the house. She's a total mess.
Fellow walks and runs! (so fast that he's blurry!)
Gilimo is crawling and pulling up, and has the best dimples around.
Joel picked out this nail polish all on his own and insisted on having both hands painted when I tried to stop at one. He communicated all of this, which is so fun!
Katie plays dress up!
Lulu is without a doubt the chubbiest child we've ever had here. It's unreal. We even have to medicate her in her fat rolls! :)
Ozzy is walking! (and drinking, the little multitask-er!)

I hope you all have a great day today!
