back home. next stop = Kenya

Crystal and i are back home after our getaway vacation. it was awesome.

we're catching up on everything this weekend. i'm excited we got back in the country in time to see the star of the EPL season which kicked off today. It's as exciting as the opening of the college football and college basketball seasons... even more exciting in a lot of ways.
Tottenham vs. Man City opening game was straight awesome.
unfortunately i've gotta wait til Monday to watch my all time favorite team's (Newcastle) 1st game... & unfortunately they've got Man U on the schedule... at Old Trafford.

we'll be home for about a month before we head to Kenya. We are SO EXCITED! we've been talking about it all the time. we talked about it a lot on vacation.

*We've been learning Swahili as best we can. i haven't been able to devote as much time to it as i want to, but hopefully i can spend a lot more time on it this month. At work today Crystal was talking to a patient from Kenya and he was so impressed at her Swahili. he said she was saying the words perfectly with the perfect accent and everything. pretty cool.

During our 10 days in Karima we'll be working in a school. i'm stoked about that. we're using the "Cooperation" curriculum we did in Upstreet last November in the school. that will be a lot of fun.
Then we'll go visit Peter and Erick in Meru and after that it looks like we'll get to spend 1-2 weeks working at an orphanage in Nairobi.

there's a little update on our Kenya journey. we're so stoked.
