Shopping, shopping and more shopping...

It has been 2 weeks since Major left and I have been busy everyday.  My sister, Sylvia, who I am staying with, told me I need to go back because I am wearing here out on her off days!  We are going to every store and checking out all the sales.  We have also been enjoying lunch and dinner with friends and family.

We were up early on the 27th as Larry Gail and his son Ethan had driven down from Seattle with equipment and supplies to put in the container.  They brought 150 soccer balls and a lot of medical equipment donated by Province Hospital in Seattle and Uniforms donated by ASB school in Seattle.  They also sent toothpaste, toothbrushes and pencils for our primary school kids after we talked to them about the need.  We helped Larry and Ethan unload the truck and poor Sue and Gene tried to find room in their very crowded garage.  The container is full and ready to send when we have the money to send it. Larry and Ethan flew back to Seattle on Wednesday and we enjoyed lunch with our Chidamoyo board members and dinner with Victoria--a Chidamoyo alumni who collects supplie
