"C-stretch"-shake-let it go...

So we finished out first week of feeding/swallowing therapy and wrapped up the ending of our second week of therapy here at the Haven. Progress was seen in the infants with feeding/swallowing difficulties. Check out Caroline's blog for the exact improvements (http://carolinerebekah.blogspot.com/2010/06/therapy-day-10-week-2-stats.html).

So I may have to change a few foul diapers but the HIGHLIGHT is dressing the babies. Darcie (left) seemed pretty content in her corduroy skirt and button up :)

Catherine with "Miller Time" he seemed to have an "explosion" (Kitty Cat your a trooper!)

Friday night we were all exhausted from the work we put in during the week. SO we continued with the tradition of "movie night in Zambia". This time we watched Hope Floats, which apparently I had forgotten how the HOPE doesn't actually float until like the last 5 minutes of the movie. It was a tear jerker for some. oops. Perhaps Zoolander or Twilight will have to be the movie of choice next Friday.
Saturday we were able to SLEEP IN! It was AH-mazing! (I managed to sleep in until 10, others were up at 8) haha. After lunch we all piled in the Khaki Jackie for a trip to Kolomo to stimulate the local economy. I, however, had to control my spending and avoided chitneges at all cost. They are just soo dang tempting to buy, but I already have enough to decorate an entire house (might be exaggerating a LITTLE!). Rach and I did purchase some much needed drinks: me- "coke LIGHT" and a water Rach-6 pack of cokes and water.

When we were driving home we saw one of Dr. Tullos' students who happens to be visually impaired walking down the long road to the Namwianga mission. It tugged at all of hearts as we saw him run towards the vehicle so of course we squeezed to make room without hesitation.
Sunday we attended church as well as the childrens bible hour. Catherine, Lacey, Jaime, and I led a couple of songs and taught them a few new ones. These children are soo eager to know about our heavenly father it's incredible.
We got word that our baby Kelly at Haven 1 is really sick so continue to pray for her. Also, Sarah may be experiencing strep throat, Rach is suffering from a cold, and Lace has the stomach flu again. So please keep our team in your thoughts and prayers. We need us all in tip top shape!!
