C'est la Vie...Settling back into Texas but dreaming of Corsica. Welcome to our blog, a place to keep and share memories of our life and journey to love and live like Christ. All through set backs and leaps forward. He had us acquiring a taste for goat cheese and strong espresso shots and made us swim through the paperwork of an Ethiopian Adoption. Now we are adjusting back to plateaus, BBQs and Rodeos.
which is walking distance from our apartment! oh how I will miss that. There are actually 3 rivers that run through our small village and each of them are beautiful. They have large rocks and several natural pools that are life saviors during the hot months with no AC (luckily it only last about a 1-1/2 month. I remember last july when it got really real hot...too hot to stay inside, too hot to go out side. EVERY afternoon we would meet up with friend and take a dip. As the locals say. "it very fresh" (directly translated). I guess we would say "its very refreshing". On some parts the water is still really cold becuase we are still pretty high up on a mountain and its from the snow melting but its feels wonderful. Please nudge me if you see me dozing off in the Texas Heat.....you will know what I a dream about.
We have 30 days left until we land in the States. Though I could not be more excited to start the next chapter God has for us and see family and friends after 2 years.......I am really, really sad to leave this beautiful place. I am going to try and share a photo(s) of the day for our last days here....from some reason it makes me feel better to share some things that I love and will really miss with you!
My memory of the day....This is walking down our street to 'downtown'.
