-I was going for a run the other day, and as I was about to run over the bridge there was a large herd of sheep being forced to cross the bridge. I was planning on just kinda staying back and taking the time to catch my breath. Thats when I saw the boy motion in my direction…I looked around… he was motioning to me!! So I shook my head ‘no thanks, sorry’ and looked really confused, yet he obviously felt confident in my sheep herding skills. So there I was on a bridge in Kaz ‘herding’ some sheep. I didn’t have a camera handy. They did make it across though!! Yay success!!
-In Kazakhstan you can go from blah to oorahhh in like 2 seconds. Like finding your favorite salad in the market after a starving all day. Or reaching the end of the honeymoon period of placement and being blah and then chatting with your pops on Skype for 2 hours and feeling like you can take on the world. Or seeing my beautiful and super wise mother on Skype and all of the goodies she got for me! I’m so proud of both of you! Or having the captain of the girls basketball team invite you to hang out and watch the boys play in a competition.
– Oh speaking of goodies… I could use some sermon cd’s!! There is unfortunately no churches in Sarkand. Look at the goodies tab for more : )
-Back to the hmmm’s: Weddings on Wednesdays? (But I’m invited so bring it on!)
– Th requirement to wear skirts to school everyday.
– People speaking in Kazakh… : )
– Even with the ups and downs… still loving every single minute of this once in lifetime opportunity.
Love you all!!
Miss you and think about you often… Please don’t forget that I LOVE getting packages, emails, phone calls, and text messages.
