I awoke this morning to the sounds of kids playing in the courtyard below. After a quick, freezing cold shower, I got ready for the day. Adrian did NOT want to get up...that's what happens if you watch 15 straight hours of movies on the plane and don't try to get some sleep as your mother suggests! He was also having some asthma issues because of the altitude, so we gave him his medicine for the first time in almost a year. Glad we brought it with us!
Shana headed outside right away and started handing out some of the beanie babies we had brought. (Thanks, Beth!) The kids were thrilled! One little boy in particular would not let his beanie baby out of his grasp all day. Whether he was eating a meal or playing basketball (with some of the new equipment our donors had purchased), his new toy was tightly clasped in his other hand.
