|Snuggles with Grandma|
The day before the boys and I got on a plane to leave South Sudan and come to Uganda to spend a few weeks with my parents, I came down with a nasty bout of strep throat. It had been a very stressful week and being sick as I tried to wrap up things in our house and pack to come was almost more than I could handle. I spent my first week "home" with my parents, sick but it was such a relief to be with family and have the extra help from my parents.

One of my favorite things has been the many heart-to-heart talks that my mom and I have had.
We have had many yummy things to eat but one of the coolest treats so far has been the Dr. Peppers I found in town. You have to understand that the food available in our part of South Sudan is very limited so food is one of the most important parts of our R&R/breaks out.
Josh is fortunate enough that his birthday happened to be while we're here with the grandparents. I'd say he's had a very memorable 8th birthday with cinnamon rolls for breakfast, whole fish for lunch (his favorite) and cake with lots of friends.
We can do what we do in South Sudan, year after year, because of the breaks and times of rest we get out of country. We are so thankful for the refreshment we're receiving while we're here and the cherry on the top is getting to be with family!
