I am so much better than this time last week. Praise the Lord! Thank you so much for your prayers. I am still pretty much house-bound and have been careful not to overdo it. We did have to make one trip to the Home Affairs Office (those in SA know how one's patience is tested on these visits) last week to apply for Benjamin's South African passport. US citizens may only stay in the country for 90 days and since we'll be here for an extended time we have to get it. Other than that we have stayed put with Bied running around for us. He has been amazing!
The kids are having a ball here at nanny and opa's house. Ami still hasn't started home school here and so she thinks she's on vacation. We will start on Monday. In the meantime, they have been helping nanny to make pancakes (crepes) and to sew. They also made spider webs in the house with nan's old cotton. Today Bradley helped daddy to fix opa's closet and an exercise bike for mother hen to use :)

Seems like there is more finger licking than helping :)
