Since we haven’t been blogging much (sincere apologies), what exactly HAVE we been up to?!
Hillcrest is the international school in Jos, and I (Christie) started the school year out for a teacher who had not yet arrived from the UK. It was fun being in the classroom again, but it was exhausting!
...Especially since I naivelly ended my two week subbing stint only the day before Chris's parents arrived in country to spend almost a month with us. We had a great time with them, but I barely even checked Facebook while they were here as we tried to suck every minute with them for what it was worth. (And by that I also mean that I took lots of naps while Grandpa and Grandma played with Judah.) Incidentally, by the way, this picture was taken at Hillcrest. 🙂
...And then of course was all the time we spend making this shirt for Judah.
But even with all that... Meet The Main Reason for Our MIA-ness. 🙂 The picture's not as clear as the ones we got in the States, but despite that, there's no mistaking it: That's a baby in there (and that baby's been making me t-i-r-e-d!!! So tired, in fact, that when faced with the choice of sleeping or blogging, well, I regret to say that slumber has won. But if it's any consolation, we rather missed "talking to" and hearing from you all.)
But now that we are into the second trimester (17 weeks), I’ve found that I’m getting energy back (It’s quite exciting to see the clock actually hit 8:00 pm these days — makes me feel a little less old, anyway. 🙂 ), which means we can begin to return to our Regularly Scheduled Program.
Thanks for your patience — and hopefully you’re still out there!! 🙂 We look forward to “reconnecting.”
