Thank you to all who have been praying for Nathan's sleep, especially during our two-week trip to Thailand. He slept beautifully while we were away. In fact, we all got caught up on sleep. Sharing a hotel room with two little boys does put a crimp in one's night life. (Considering that our "night life" usually involves t.v., books, or the computer, it wasn't much of a sacrifice.) We turned the lights out around 7:30 each evening and had little choice but to join the boys in going to bed. A couple nights we were daring and stayed up until ten watching McGyver episodes in the bathroom. We plugged the portable DVD player into the hairdryer outlet and sat on the floor trying to avoid the day's pile of foul diapers in one corner and the invisible ring of near misses around the toilet.
It is always good to reconnect with friends and colleagues who are working throughout Southeast Asia. We share stories, ideas, encouragement, and (inevitably) germs. Every year we leave with a new virus of some sort. We are spending this week mending from that.
I will write more soon, but for now the laundry is beckoning. I hope you all had a very meaningful Easter celebration.
