Neighborhood Change

It's been a while. Too long, I know. Our neighborhood has changed a little recently. My friend across the street, Nan, moved to another house in Chiang Mai. The other girls living in the house are still there, with Nan's aunt staying there as their chaperone. The aunt is quite friendly and we've gone over to visit her a few times. She's not there all the time though, since her own house is in a different town and I believe she works there as well.

Also, Hope and Haven's  two little friends Idea and Image have started school again, and both of them are attending all day long, so our girls have no friends in our neighborhood during the day. We have been able to spend time with them in the evenings recently though, and Hope and Haven always enjoy that. One of these days, I think we'll plan on all going to the big pool close by. I think that would be a blast for all of them.

We have a compost pile outside our back door. Many of the seeds from different fruits and vegetables have sprouted and grown back there. We have some volunteer papaya trees actually producing fruit. We also have a pumpkin vine with six big pumpkins growing on it. I think it will be fun to share the produce from our volunteer garden with all of our neighbors. Hope and Haven love to take gifts around to our neighbors so I can't wait until the papayas and pumpkins are ready to pick and share.

Robbie's language school is going well. He just entered a new module, Module 7. I'm not sure what the topic is. Module 6 was Thai Life. He learns vocabulary and different stories related to each topic, and this helps to broaden his knowledge and ability to apply the language. We're hoping to be ready to leave for Surin at the end of this year.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support.
