This I Will Miss

hanging out and singing late at night

Womens worship on Thursday mornings

Jasmyne and Brackston

Meals with lots of people in a small space

Small, but alive basement churches

Riding the subway

Halal food stands

Starbucks within walking distance
extremely overpriced everything(this I won't miss)

And most of all.....these two precious little angels who stole my heart.

How Time Flies

Well, here I am. Two days into the last week already. It feels like it's been forever since I left home and yet it feels like it hasn't been that long. On one hand, I'm ready to go home. On the other, I'll really miss being here. C'est la vie.
Last Wednesday & Friday we walked about 30 minutes to Flushing Meadows Park. It is a pretty large park---it has a small zoo, the Terrace on the Park banquet hall, lots of walking paths, the Mets' stadium, and much more. If I lived here all the time, I would constantly be going there. It was fantastic to be able to get some sun and to sit in grass and make dandelion chains. When we went on Friday, we visited the little zoo...not sure if that was a hit or not---he was terrified of the sea lions, and some of the animals were hard to see. Here are a few pics from that.


The bear was a big hit. In fact, when it was time to leave, he didn't want to go--just wanted to sit and watch the bear. He kept repeating one of his new favorite sayings, "Oh whoa!" and even asked if he could touch it. :)

A Tour of My {temporary}Home

The past several days have been simply glorious---spring finally came!! We've spent most of our mornings outside this week walking and playing at parks and we might even get to go to the zoo later this morning. My skin is just loving all the sunshine it's recieving!
I forgot that I was going to post a picture of that bowl's price here it is. :)

I've also beening meaning to take a video tour of where I live and finally did it today. Enjoy!
