We're here, at missionary training! We've just about gotten settled in. The girls are already on their second bath due to the fact that there are four playgrounds on campus. DeLaynie is loving it!
Today we met with their teachers and looked at their classrooms. Tomorrow they start class. I've said from the very beginning that their being in daycare would be the most interesting element in this process. Most of the mommies here have been stay-at-home moms, so we're all in same, nervous boat.
One issue that we have already encountered is that DeLaynie doesn't know what to do with the food. She hasn't eaten much here. We think that the lack of options will eventually be good for her. It's still in the "unpleasant" category for now.
Again, let me thank all of our prayer supporters. The girls were incredibly well behaved on the trip. We made is safely, and we still haven't hit any real snags. As you think about us, pray for their girls' first day of "school," that they'll adapt quickly and have a good time. Pray for us as we start class and deal with the idea that we won't be the ones caring for them for a large part of the day. Pray that DeLaynie's mouth will begin to accept new foods, and that she won't be too stubborn to welcome the change. Thank you, again for all of your prayers. They make a ton of difference!
