Monday night we met up with friends in Austin. Friendships birthed in Haiti always seem to be really solid ones.
Bonds that cannot be broken were born one hot Sunday afternoon in '08 on the side of a mountain in Haiti. Aaron Ivey trusted Troy enough to admit he'd schat his pants and he was powerless to deal with it alone .... and the rest is history. Our faces hurt the next morning from laughing so much.
Tuesday we stopped in Waco again to hug Britt and Chris and Paige and say goodbye. Britt and Paige argued about who felt more sadness between them and I assured them that I felt the most sad and they could quit trying to compete. I win. We'll see Paige in a month when she comes home from her summer trip. We don't think we'll see Britt & Chris for seven months but things could change. (Read: please, things, change!)
After an amazingly fun time in TX, we're headed "home". It is always odd and wonderful to confirm that as senseless (?) and confusing as it sometimes is, 'home' right now is in Port au Prince.
We're excited to get home today. Missing us some rowdy little livesay-kids. We cannot thank Joanna enough for doing such a great job caring for our tribe.
