We hit Walmart in five different towns. What fun!
We went to an apple Orchard and pick a few apples. We had apple cider and applebutter.
He got to finally meet the Zachary and Sanderfur (my mom’s) families.
We spent three days with a family that had adopted two children from Haiti. They had a volleyball game and we went. I was able to meet two other families that have adopted children from Haiti. The Lacher family (Hi guys!), sent down some of the square mats for the kids in the RC. It was so refreshing to meet new faces and really see the blogs help get the word out about what we do here.
We got to go to a farm and see where they milk cows. It was fun to explain to the kids how it works. Then we explained to the man how we milk them in Haiti.
It was cold, but we still went to the go-cart track!
We helped pack up the container to come to Haiti. That was fun! BTW all the goal was met for the funds for the container. It has already arrived here in Haiti and is waiting to clear customs. Keep praying!
praying over it before it left for Florida!
air hockey with Papaw. Papaw won!
Papaw got Carmelo a new bike. We bought it from the same shop that I bought my bike from when I was 12 years old. So Carmelo wanted Gran to “see” him on the bike. We went to the grave site for a visit. Remember we all went back to the USA when she died (in 2005) and Carmelo had to stay in Haiti. So this was the first time he was able to go.
We had him try a lot of good food. This was a volcano ice cream something and below is ribs. And yes he did eat his whole meal with his jacket and hat on. I made him take the gloves off to eat 🙂
I told Carmelo we would count how many people asked us if he spoke English. Just to have something fun to do on the trip. After we were there for a few days with dad we started counting something new. We counted how many times I told dad the light was green or red. Carmelo thinks he is color blind. I just think he has driven in Haiti to long. So if you see someone stopping at the green lights and going on the red lights look and make sure it is not dad before you honk your horn!
