Countdown Activities

Here are a few of the things we are doing to get ready. Isaac is learning to carry things on his head the way the Haitian ladies do. Here he is practicing with a Christmas Tree box. He needs to learn to do it without his hands like the lady on the right.

Another thing we are doing is being careful to notice all the things we are really blessed to be able to do. A stop at the Wendy's drive-thru is a big treat, we are being sure to savor it! Today we had fun in seven new inches of snow. The snowfall was beautiful here today, the kids enjoyed it this afternoon. Noah stood at the window and yelled out at them.

We are doing pretty well with our packing. The Haiti pile will need to have some sifting but we are close to being able to call ourselves "semi-organized". We are not aiming for perfection; something resembling organization is our goal.
